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. .

This is becoming laughable .... Some of my IFTTT applets inform me of entry and exit events detected by HS3 and notified to my phone. Not only are they delayed (varying from a couple of minutes to 30 or 40 minutes), they don't arrive in the correct sequence! I sometimes get notified of an entry well before the related exit is notified.

If anyone can share how they are doing the heartbeat it would be appreciated. I would like to get a better understanding of the delay as it pertains to my integrations.

thx

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 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.

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 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

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