IFTTT integration

What a pleasant surprise to find that Google Home integration is now working with Sonoff devices. After linking eWeLink with Google Home, I can now perform these functions:

- turn on/off lights, coffee, tv/stereo, etc just by simple voice commands

- with Google Home's room function, I can say turn off Kitchen and the whole kitchen shuts down - lights, coffee, and other cookers obey in one command.

So the next step in home automation will be integration with IFTTT. With this, a whole new range of wondrous capabilities can happen:

- turn on/off lights, tv/stereo, heater/AC, etc. automatically when you go/leave home

- log device activities in Google spreadsheets for later analysis

- turn on heaters at home or in green room, etc. when weather reports say it's getting cold

- many-many more

Please Itead make this happen and your devices will be in greater use and demand.

Be nice fr the B1 to change colour when an IFTTT trigger occurs.

I haven’t heard or read anything about the B1 bulb being added. The main B1 page (at least used to) says it is IFTTT capable, although the separate IFTTT lists don’t include it. Current IFTTT integration is extremely basic, with just on/off, even for triple sockets that don’t exist, meanwhile single switches appear in both socket and switch etc. I think we may be waiting a while for something as complicated as a bulb with different colours/warmth and brightness & most other bulbs aren’t on IFTTT anyway. I suspect IFTTT need to add an easy to use bulb API.

Just a random thought following on from the RF bridge discussion. Sonoff make an RF capable version of their basic switch (Sonoff RF if I recall) which is a standard single channel Sonoff with an additional RF control. Could the Bridge be used to activate the Sonoff RF via which in turn could send out IFTTT commands (as it is a standard Sonoff switch)? This may be a workaround in relation to solution to Tony's solution? Sorry, don't have the components to test the idea.
