Will IFTTT triggers be implemented?


You can use the HTTPd plugin to trigger actions in Indigo based on an IFTTT event.

Re: IFTTT Action plugin

So I saw this device in a write up about CES

https://lametric.com/en-US/time/overview

and noticed that it has some degree of IFTTT implementation. I know no one can promise me anything, but does it seem possible for Indigo to send data/info to IFTTT, and from there to this device?

I messed with IFTTT long before Indigo, but once I started with this software, I left it by the wayside for the most part. But it would be nice to be able to send data from Indigo and have it displayed on this device...


Anyone have any thoughts ?

Re: IFTTT Action plugin

Sure looks like it's possible, but impossible to be sure without having a device to activate an account with. Without an account, I can't see what actions IFTTT can actually do with the device.

Amazon has it at a discount. I might pick one up to try. If it doesn't work, I can return it.

Though for the price, the Echo Show seems like a much better device. Or the Dot, which is a lot cheaper.

Trying to install.
Is the Indigo Maker Channel now webhooks? That's where the link in docs goes to. (https://ifttt.com/maker_webhooks).
The Webhooks API key is to be used?

Yeah, they renamed it.

The API key is used when making http calls TO IFTTT. Not web hooks called from IFTTT.

Re: IFTTT Action plugin

Thanks. Currently just going 'to' IFTTT. Trying to control my AutoMower, to park it based on rainfall.

Re: IFTTT Action plugin

Is there a way I can turn more debug on?

Action is logged in Indigo Event Log but not getting to IFTTT
I have a WebHook called Raining so as to avoid spaces issues.
I can trigger using curl from command line and also via a browser.

Re: IFTTT Action plugin

You could try a Python script instead of the plugin. This does the same thing the plugin does:

Code: Select all
import requests

requests.get("https://maker.ifttt.com/trigger/<ACTION>/with/key/<API-KEY>")
