    why is not Homeseer getting rid of IFTTT?

    as a matter of evidence IFTTT is not a tool you can rekon on.
    Why is Homesseer putting its name at risk dealing such a fancy product?

    I think this is definitely an example of "your results may vary". Also, potentially another reason to embrace other competing solutions - such as stringify? In general an open interface such as this is very attractive as an add-on to homeseer.

    exellent idea! but nothing more than an idea!

    I just tried this
    2 Triggers via mail to swich on and off a device.
    2 events detect the change and send an email to confirm reception

    It works... from time to time after 2 minuyes or three hours!
    Even worse: sometimes, if I send various identical triggers but at various hours when they at last arrive, they arrive simulteanously.

    ITTT is absolutely to be avoided!

    Same here. When I have it lock my doors at night it's only a 2 or 3 second pause at the very longest.

    I have noticed a similar change lately where ifttt is triggering a bit more quickly, not 100% of the time but enough to make it viable for non critical things

    Mine have gone from saying within an hour (completely useless for anything) to within seconds and everything is working again.

    Has something recently changed or was it just me with regular 10-20min delays on IFTTT events.

    Either way happy chappie again

I sometimes get notified of an entry well before the related exit is notified.


    I have an RFID tag in my SUV. When it leaves or returns to the garage, it triggers an HS3 event which triggers an IFTTT event to log the departure/arrival to my iOS Calendar. I have been doing this for about 1 month. For the most part, the calendar entries are within 10 minutes or less from the actual actual arrival/departure. This is good enough for my needs. The calendar entries are simply a reminder. This is way easier and less irritating than getting an email.

    thx
    See my post above.

    Hi John,

    Sorry, missed your post. Are you talking about the HS heartbeat or the IFTTT one? The HS one is an event that runs once every hour, 5 minutes after the hour and triggers this script:

    Code:
    Sub Main(ByVal Parms As String)
    
    	Dim MyTime As DateTime = Now 
    	Dim MyString As String = ""
    	Dim minute As Integer = MyTime.Minute
    	Dim second As Integer = MyTime.Second
    	If (minute-5)*60+second = 1 Then 
    		MyString = "1 second"
    	Else 
    		MyString = CStr((minute-5)*60+second) & " seconds"
    	End If
    
    	hs.WriteLogEx("Check 5:00", MyString, "#0000FF")
    
    End Sub
    The IFTTT one is a modification to the one posted by UltraJones here: https://forums.homeseer.com/showpost...4&postcount=21. I have modified my event that is triggered by IFTTT to also run this script:


    Code:
    Sub Main(ByVal Parms As String)
    
    	Dim MyTime As DateTime = Now 
    	Dim MyString As String = ""
    	Dim minute As Integer = MyTime.Minute
    	Dim second As Integer = MyTime.Second
    	If (minute)*60+second = 1 Then 
    		MyString = "1 second"
    	Else 
    		MyString = CStr((minute)*60+second) & " seconds"
    	End If
    
    	hs.WriteLogEx("IFTTT Heartbeat", MyString, "#0000FF")
    
    End Sub

    I am seeing a big improvement in IFTTT response time. They must have upgraded their system. Now, my recipes that are supposed to trigger at a specific time, are actually triggering within seconds of their designated time trigger. [emoji3].

    Has there been any discussion on HS integrating with Stringify? It's like IFTTT on steroids. It has a much more robust rule engine similar to what most of us would want. Haven't noticed a delay issue on Stringify with other platforms either.

    I still use IFTTT extensively, but try not to for anything important. I am moving more and more of that stuff over to Tasker and autoremote. HS gets info to my phone and back a hell of a lot faster than IFTTT.

    Zapier is much faster than IFTTT unfortunately most of the "smart devices" aren't supported. Mostly services and software, websites, etc. Zapier is also not free if you use it a lot. I am also starting to look into stringify. So far it's much faster than IFTTT.

    Also, Stringify lets you set up flows that are much more involved than IFTTT recipes
