Really like apilio: its adding just what I need to ifttt, but I have an intermittent issue that’s a bit annoying.
I have a logic block to control an electric blanket. Ifttt sends triggers if the weather goes over or under certain temperatures each day, updating a variable in apilio. At 9.30pm each night, ifttt send another trigger to evaluation of the logic block. If it was a cold day, an event is sent back to ifttt that switches on my wemo plug for the blanket. For debugging it also sends another event that just emails me an alert to say the blanket is on.
Most days this works really well, bang on 9.30 both blanket and email events fire. However, once every 2 to 3 weeks, Ilthe blanket wasn’t coming on despite it being cold. The email event fired fine but not the one for the wemo. Then i woke up hot in the night : turned out the missing event came through at about 1.30am. I’ve since noticed that occasionally the wemo event fires on time but the email comes through several hours later.
Is this likely just a natural delay that sometimes happens? Or a consequence of firing two events at the same time? Or something else? It’s just unreliable enough that I might need to lost the automation again if I can’t fix it. My wife doesn’t like a cold bed!
