I’m trying to automate my basement fireplace, and I go one step forward and 2 steps back it seems haha Here is a break down of what I have and what I am having trouble with:
I bought a 2 channel wifi relay that works with eWeLink. Channel 1 of the relay is the fan, channel 2 is the flame. It works great! My problem is I want the fan (channel 1) to run 10-15 minutes longer then when the flame (channel 2) turns off.
Here is where the problems start, in eWeLink I was going to make a “scene” where is channel 2 turns off, channel 1 turns off with a 10 minute delay. But eWeLink doesn’t allow me to use the same device in a if/then scenario.
So then I turned to IFTTT and made an applet, “If channel 2 turns off, Channel 1 turns off” thinking I could add a delay… I guess thats not an option with IFTTT
So after hours of searching I found Apilio, and it seems like this will be the final puzzle piece, but for the life of me I can’t figure out how to set it up in apilio. I feel like this would be a super easy problem for all you smart cats on this forum. Can anyone please help me out??
