I have been using APILIO with Smart Life and IFTTT for about 6 weeks now and a couple of days ago, I was away from home and had occasion to interrogate the logs to try and identify an issue with a door sensor. In essence, I received an alert (from Smart Life) that my garage door was open. Looking at my cameras, I quickly ascertained that it was not and it appears that there was a problem with the sensor not registering the close event. This has now been resolved in Smart Life.
However, I looking into a few conditions I have defined in APILIO that are linked to the sensor in question, I noticed that there are no events logged since May 5th. I checked the connection and it was showing as active. Curiously, since checking the connection, I can see new events coming in. This happened even though, I did not change anything. The only thing I did was hit “revoke”, but quickly cancelled the action as it would have messed a bunch of stuff up.
As part of my diags, I have checked another condition linked to a different sensor and I am also seeing a gap in events from 05th May until yesterday (19 days), which leads me to conclude that the issue is with the integration and not the device. This leaves me a little concerned as the main reason (right now) for using APILIO is to trigger an alert based on certain conditions. As this does no involve user interaction, I need to be able to depend on this working 100% of the time (or at least alerting me if there’s a connectivity issue).
Has anyone come across this and is there something I should be doing to stop this happening in the future?
