Apilio & IFTTT ===> events

Hi, I’m totally new to Apilio.

I’m trying the following first action to test Apilio & IFTTT:

  • In Apilio I’ve made 2 numeric variables, named RB_var_1 and RB_var_2

  • Next I made a condition that if RB_var_1 > RB_var_2 that then an event should go from Apilio towards IFTTT

  • I named that event “temperature_check” (… is “event” in IFTTT the same as a “logicblock” in Apilio …)

  • I then go to IFTTT and I do select Apilio as the triggering service

  • However I don’t see then the option to select “temperature_check” as the triggering Apilio event

  • I only do see events like turn_light_on, turn_light_off, …

  • These are prebuilt events isn’t it?

What I’m doing wrong?

Thanks in advance,


Hey Robert, welcome!

So a few things to check:

  1. Have you made your condition a Trigger to fire a Logicblock (this is a “lightning” tick box in the Condition setup) and send your event to IFTTT?
  2. Have you added a New IFTTT event to your Logicblock positive action chain and named it something relevant to your IFTTT action?
  3. Have you then added a Receive an Event from Apilio applet in IFTTT? You should see the event name you added in step 2 in the IFTTT dropdown.

If you’ve done all of these things then when the condition is reached it will trigger the Logicblock evaluation to send your new Apilio event name to IFTTT.

Hope that helps but let me know if you need any more support. DanT
