What a pleasant surprise to find that Google Home integration is now working with Sonoff devices. After linking eWeLink with Google Home, I can now perform these functions:
- turn on/off lights, coffee, tv/stereo, etc just by simple voice commands
- with Google Home's room function, I can say turn off Kitchen and the whole kitchen shuts down - lights, coffee, and other cookers obey in one command.
So the next step in home automation will be integration with IFTTT. With this, a whole new range of wondrous capabilities can happen:
- turn on/off lights, tv/stereo, heater/AC, etc. automatically when you go/leave home
- log device activities in Google spreadsheets for later analysis
- turn on heaters at home or in green room, etc. when weather reports say it's getting cold
- many-many more
Please Itead make this happen and your devices will be in greater use and demand.
@Lodgemoorlad. You have the latest firmware for the TH10 (2.0.4) so it's not a firmware issue. I have 2 TH10s controlling my heating system via IFTTT so this is achievable. Sorry there is not enough info for me to comment further.
I live in a large house with heating working on two independent zones upstairs and downstairs. I have TH10s with temperature probe on each level. It is impractical to run cables from the TH10s so as the temperature goes above/ below the threshold temperature set on the TH10 (set to 18 degrees upper and lower) an IFTTT trigger is sent to the appropriate zone valve controlled by single channel sonoff switches to open/close and in addition, on the living level, IFTTT messages are sent to the fan assisted radiators to turn on/ off the fans, again using IFTTT. I am about to change the zone valve control to a single 4 channel unit controlling the heating and additionally the hot water. I have never tried the proximity trigger via IFTT, i assume you are using GPS settings via your phone?
Just a thought. sounds like you may be using the TH10 to turn on heating as you get close to your home? The auto settings will, override any IFTTT message if the conditions are not in range for the activation condition for example if you have your temp settings at at say 17 low, 19 high then if the temp is 18 any activation request will be ignored
Please don't be offended by this but you have linked your IFTTT account to your Ewelink account correctly? You can add more than one IFTTT trigger to the same event. Maybe set another rule to send an email when in GPS range; it's a handy way of confirming the rule is triggering correctly. At least that would confirm that the GPS event is triggering and the problem lies specifically to the sonoff device(s)
IFTTT integration works fine, but I can't make several one channel devices work simultaneously. Something like: "ok google, switch off the living room" --> IFTTT sends a request in order to shutdown four one-channel devices.
Have any idea?
I've successfully turned on and off 3 individual sonoff switches with a webhooks maker event. Create the same THIS trigger 3 times (same event name) and configure your THAN with the different sonoff devices you want to control.
