Applet creation in https://ifttt.com/ question

by zzcrow on Sun Nov 07, 2021 9:54 am

So I signed up for unlimited applets on https://ifttt.com/. I created an applet and linked to adafruit io already... and if you give me a good answer I will sign up for premium adafruit io..
. My question is I am trying to control an led strip by voice. I used "Use a specific phrase" and data to save "color" on iffft .and alexa. How do I configure the applet to accept a string variable to change the led strip? I am hoping I can say "green" or "animation" after the trigger phrase to change the value. Help please. I'm wondering if I have to do "Add query" to accept subset data as the string.???
Have a great Sunday all

IFTTT can only activate on reading the value of a feed, not writing to a feed.

Ok thanks, to clarify I was trying to see how to handle the data I passed in my adafruit io sketch, not iffft directly.
