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.
Be nice fr the B1 to change colour when an IFTTT trigger occurs.
Just a random thought following on from the RF bridge discussion. Sonoff make an RF capable version of their basic switch (Sonoff RF if I recall) which is a standard single channel Sonoff with an additional RF control. Could the Bridge be used to activate the Sonoff RF via which in turn could send out IFTTT commands (as it is a standard Sonoff switch)? This may be a workaround in relation to solution to Tony's solution? Sorry, don't have the components to test the idea.
Hey Brian, I ordered a switch a few weeks ago, I'll check your solution when I get it. It's plausible.
Not aware of any way to do that Roman, at moment only on and off is supported, not toggle (although it would be a useful feature)
Got my switch earlier this week, just set it up with scenes and IFTTT - no luck. The IFTTT will turn the switch on and off, but the Ewelink scenes aren't triggered by the switch being turned on or off by IFTTTT.
You an also just use multiple IFTTT rules on a single event/device in place of scenes.
EB - Makes sense - but trying to get a work around with the RF Bridge - which does not work with IFTTT. Hence the need to use Ewelink scenes. Overall, an inexpensive experiment but would not be recommending the RF Bridge to anyone that wants it to be any use at all.
