    this has a few consequences:

    - with the plugin you can use several IFTTT account linked to several free Dropbox account, whereas to do the same with the HS channel you would need to buy the myhs premium service



    - in case IFTTT is compromised, the attacker would only have access to the dropbox account, whereas with the HS channel, he would potentially be able to access your whole HS system.



    - the dropbox service is likely to be more robust than myHS, so uptime may be better.



    other differences:

    - with the plugin it's possible to pass parameters back and forth, see the advanced section of the user guide



    - this plugin can be used with services similar to IFTTT like stringify: https://forums.homeseer.com/showthread.php?t=188537


    Thank you Spud! I do have a premium MyHS account but I think you sold me with all the disadvantages of using MyHS.
