I’m not sure how I can show the evidence of the request was sent to the cloud other than physically the light switches on in the room?
Here’s an example of a simple bulb on/off test.
I have an Apilio condition called officeLightOn:
I have a logicblock that turns on this bulb every day at 7am.
From the last reported value on this condition you can see that this worked this morning at 7am and indeed the bulb was switched on successfully.
However, if I try switching the device on/off at the moment this last reported value does not update.
I have switched the device off at 11:09am and back on a few seconds later using my Smart Life app on my phone. The bulb immediately switched off and back on as I expected but the last reported value in Apilio remains as 07:00:04 with the status as of that time.
I also tested using a logicblock in Apilio rather than via the Smart Life app.
So I created a simple logicblock that triggered at 11:24am today.
It’s action was to switch on the office light.
At 11:24 the logicblock was triggered and the bulb immediately switched on in the office.
However, when I check the last reported status on the condition it still is 07:00:04 from earlier this morning.
