full IFTTT integration for the Bridge

Right now, I can connect the bridge to the Ewelink app, and I can connect my Ewelink account to IFTTT but the only options that show up are plugs and switches.


I'd love to be able to send an email that "pushes" a button my 4-button remote, or hourly check to see if someone left the garage door open, and send me an email if it is.

Absolutely necessary especially when an alarm is received by the RF bridge to trigger a sequence of events outside the ewelink app.

Hi all,


This is the eWeLink team.


Thank you so much for your suggestion. We sincerely appreciate it. 


It is estimated that RF bridge support for IFTTT will be available by end of October.


Your kind patience and understanding would be much appreciated.

Agreed.  I would also like to be able to have the Sonoff Magnetic Door/Window Sensor and PIR to trigger an action

Please ADD IFTTT support for bridge. It's unbelievable that you have not implemented it yet!

When will the Sonoff RF Bridge 433 be compatible with IFTTT?

The Sonoff switches can already be operated via IFTTT, but the Sonoff RF Bridge 433 is not.

This is very important for a complete system with sensors and actuators.

After all, door and window sensors or motion detectors can be connected to the Sonoff RF Bridge 433 as sensors with which the Sonoff switches (actuators) could be controlled (preferably via IFTTT links).

If the Sonoff RF Bridge 433 is compatible with IFTTT, the system is only complete.

I agree, I expected the rf bridge to show up on the ifttt actions once I had logged in, and was very disappointed that Ifttt only shows the various sonoff switches. Pleas add the rf bridge to the ifttt app soon.. ( and update the iOS app to show the rf bridge and let us use it in scenes! )

Hi, I would like to ask all participants not to generate confusion while discussing their workarounds. If you use a switch as a proxy to tell IFTTT or Stringify that a PIR sensor or eWeLink scene has been triggered, then turning the same switch on by other means (button, eWeLink, RF remote, Google Home, Alexa…) would look the same to the IFTTT/Stringify and it would, therefore, turn it off after the timeout that you set. In order to differentiate, I guess you need to dedicate one switch/gang as a trigger and use the other one to control the light. The same applies to the sending of emails via IFTTT.

 

Another problem with this workaround is probably that only the event (e.g. movement) that turns the switch can be detected, so the timer would turn the light off even if you keep moving and the PIR sensor firing. In order to detect subsequent movements, you should turn the proxy switch off.

  

In the garage door scenario, the source opening the door is irrelevant, and a single IP switch (controlling the door) would do the job. However, the garage doors are typically controlled by RF remotes…

 

What we really need is to enable the RF bridge to pass the RF remote or sensor events it receives to IFTTT/Stringify or start/clear/stop eWeLink's device/scene timers. That is what I assume as a part of RF bridge IFTTT support that was announced for October 2018. The other part would be the ability to control RF switches from IFTTT via the RF bridge.

 

Only if we are precise enough we may know what is actually going on.

Bring it on, I need IFTTT support for RF Bridge to get the full potential out of the sensor equipment

Same here. The RF Bridge has so much potential if it were compatible with ifttt. Please make it happen!

I completely agree. We are currently very restricted using EWeLink, which is very frustrating. To make the most of the excellent hardware being supplied, we need scenes, RF Bridge buttons and alarms integration in IFTTT. ILeadStudio - please respond to this user demand and satisfy your customers! And please respond to this forum thread and give us an update please.

Ewelink you confirmed this was being worked on with a expected go live of October. Can you please update

Hi Lee - yes that's the way to get it to do something, but it's just a workaround and the community want something smarter to be implemented by eWelink so's the bridge shows up as a device.

this pir sensor and rf bridge is hopeless. this is frustrating. i expected it to work our of the box with iftt. they dont even bother to respond to our request. A short reply saying they will look in to it or it is under developement would have eases the dissapointment.
