Shut down PI before smart plug switch off

What is the problem?

Like many, I have a smart plug to turn the printer on and off as well as power to the Pi. I have a Tuya scene switch on the wall with a routine to power the socket on and off. What i'd like to happen is the button press triggers a IFTTT action to send a command to the Pi to shutdown, wait X seconds and then turn the plug off.

What did you already try to solve it?

I've looked in to sending a MQTT command from IFTTT to the Pi but i've quick got out of my depth.

Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?


If all the delay logic is handled outside of OctoPrint via IFTTT than wouldn't the IFTTT plugin be able to handle the shutdown command?

I see now that the IFTTT plugin is outbound only.
