IFTTT HOW IT WORKS
The IFTTT purpose is to create chains of “conditions”, this mean that you can create an event that create another event, like if you have a smart speacker at home you could create or implement inside your home plant with customized links in order to exec actions like turning on a light.
HOW DOES IFTTT WORK INSIDE EVE SYSTEM
This kind of protocol can be integrated inside our system. Eve system has the power to create crypted links that works like commands. By making the weebhooks allows you to set events like closing the lights when leaving home with the geolocalization.
HOW TO SET UP IFTTT PROTOCOL INSIDE EVE MANAGER
Step 1:To integrate the IFTTT protocol inside our system we are going to need to set the Ilevia cloud, you can find the ilevia cloud here. Create a new account then login.
Step 2: Now to link your Eve X1 server to IFTTT protocol click connect new ilevia hardware, then write in the text box the licence id of your hardware then click connect.
Step 3: The next step will be the Eve manager project, you can build your project as you want, then to apply the IFTTT protocol to it simply add the tag IFTTT to a switch or scenario (EVE manager can apply the IFTTT protocol only to switches or scenarios).
Step 4: After applying the tag to the desired object you will be able to see it in your ilevia cloud account.
Step 5: The next step will be getting the crypted links for the on/off switch
Step 6: Now we will create the weebhook, so login the IFTTT web site, then write weebhooks inside the search bar, click on the option service on the middle left and click on the webhooks service and connect it into your account.
Step 7: As explained before EVE system works only as the last action (then that) it can’t be set like fist action (if this). For example throught the android device service you can set that your home’s lights go off when you leave it only by disconnecting from your wifi network.
