How do I setup my smart plug with IFTTT?

Daniel5Daniel5 Santa Rosa, CAPosts: 12Member

I have a smart plug that is not directly compatible with OC but Id like to none the less set it up with IFTTT to properly trigger during OH (and then of course turn back on afterwards)

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Hi Daniel. Have you tried searching for "IFTTT" in the forum search bar? I'm pretty sure I've seen recent posts about this. It's always good to start with the FAQ section, then search the forum, and then only finally start a new thread. Doing so helps us keep the forum uncluttered and helps you find the answer you're looking for more quickly. Thanks!

    I have searched and have not found a direct answer to my question. The IFTTT recipes available are only compatible with Wemo devices

    Edit: I understand how to trigger the device off using the "#ohmhour today" email but I do not know how to trigger the device back on

    Glad to hear you're halfway there! What type of smart switch are you using, and can you use the email you receive at the end of the OhmHour as a trigger to turn it back on?

    DOH!! Thank you WaterGuy. You lead me in the right direction. I had emails OFF for when the OhmHour ended. I didnt realize that was an option! With those on, its rather obvious then how to make this work. Thanks again

    No worries! I'm glad we stumbled upon the solution together; there are lots of little hidden features in that Setting page. I hope the rest of the setup process works well!
