Hi folks. Just getting into Apilio and have a dilemma.
I have a Tuya Smartlife garage door opener that’s working fine in the app. I’d like to set a trigger so that when the garage door opens, it changes a boolean in Apilio so I can do other things.
Currently the only way I see to do this is to go from Tuya > IFTTT > Apilio. Problem is that the IFTTT is a polling app so it’s super slow. This is not a good option.
Exact use case is this (open to suggestions)… My daughter parks her car outside and comes in after dark a lot. I’d like to have the outside lights come on when she raises the garage door at night.
Current set up is a logic block with
- It’s night time (Apilio time condition) AND
- Garage door is open (condition set by a boolean triggered by IFTTT)
- Triggers IFTTT action that sets Kasa scene that turns on all outside lights
This works, but it could be 1-2 mins after the garage door goes up at night, which defeats the purpose.
Really appreciate any insight anybody has on this!
