I see. I am using Webhooks to trigger a message from IFTTT. I confirmed the event name in IFTTT matches the event name in the Indigo trigger and I am not passing any values. The Webhook I created says it is active and it has never run. Thanks for your help!


Let's start at the beginning. You're using the IFTTT plugin to (attempt to) trigger an IFTTT action, correct? So that's not a message "from IFTTT"? What does this IFTTT action actually do? Post a screenshot.

Re: IFTTT Action plugin

Try activating that without using the plugin. Put this in a Python script action:

Code: Select all
import requests

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


Edit that last part to put in the API key you're using.

Re: IFTTT Action plugin

Good to know. A plugin is really kinda overkill for this, since it's such a simple Python script.

Re: IFTTT Action plugin

I assume it may be possible to turn on an Alexa device, not available to Indigo?

Thanks,
