    Was wondering the same. I actually have 7, five of which are disconnected. Had thought to maybe delete the 5 I'm not using, lest they try to decide for me which ones I don't want.

      I have over 20 applets (or recipies, or whatever they are calling them today), but I have them as a convenience, not as a necessity. I always created a second methodology, as I never have trusted a free cloud based service not to do something like this (and they did).

      I am not going to change anything until they actually stop working. There is a lot of screaming and yelling going on about this in the industry, so it is possible they may "modify" their stance before October 7 (and claim its because they are "listening" to their customers).

      I suspect the vendors (who have been solely paying for IFTTT up to now), are making their input known. It has been a selling point for many products, which has now gone away.

        At least they are not going away completely as stringify did.

          I do not use IFTTT as I found it too slow when I tried it years ago. If I did use it I would be doing a web search for node red contribs for anything I might be using. And frankly probably would have started such before the IFTT announcement. I saw there is a contrib for a Trane thermostat and blink cameras, which have been mentioned here as reasons to use IFTTT. With node red you can be a little more localized. This coming from someone who is only playing with node red, so not trying to advocate it here, but suggest you may find an alternative.

              Tried to use it long ago. After waiting minutes for a trigger to arrive, let it go. Not worth any money at all. Not even for free.

                Agreed. I use Jon00 RSS plugin to parse feeds.
                I tried IFTTT to have the RSS feeds sent to me via Gmail.
                The events never fired.

                      Haha, No, the trigger arrived at some point, but way to late to be effective. I believe it came in 5 minutes after the real event. Not fit for anything critical.

                          Agree with many others here. Tried it once and the delays were intolerable. Moved along quickly. Looks like this is a desperate last chance to keep the company alive.

                            They are already changing their mind. Got a mail that the 'only the first year' is no longer valid, what you choose now will also stay valid after a year. They say.

                              My patience for their service/product lasted all of about a day. Set up some routines, appallingly bad response times on triggers.

                              In response to their attempt at monetising, years after the HA gold rush has peaked and dropped back:

                                Exactly my experience. I wanted some events triggered when my Skybell doorbell was pressed. It took anywhere from 1 minute to more than an hour. Totally useless...
