Could you add a couple new actions to the IFTTT channel? I’ll do my best to try and explain what I am looking for.
To start with, I want to create a watering time that is scheduled to run daily at lets say 3pm. However, I want to set it as disabled so that it won’t run initially.
Then, for my IFTTT recipe, if my Netatmo station detects an outside temperature of X degrees (or above) sometime throughout the day, I’d then like that watering time enabled so that it’ll run at the schedule time that afternoon.
I just then need to figure out a way to disable it afterwards so that it won’t continue to run daily (unless that X temperature is detected). So if my first request can be added, then adding that same type of action but this time to disable a watering time - I think this will work. Because I’ll set the recipe for if the Netatmo detects a temperature less than Y, to disable that Iro watering time.
My only other thought would be if the Iro channel can have an action to run a specific watering time and then also provide the time to run it as a parameter in IFTTT - so that its override the disabled watering time settings and enable it to run at the time specified in IFTTT. This would make it easier so that I wouldn’t have to worry about enabling and then disabling that watering time each day. Im just not sure if that type of action and additional parameter can be done in IFTTT.
Currently, I think the only thing that can be done is to trigger the watering time to run as soon as that temperature is detected. The goal would be to have it water my flowers zone in the late afternoon if it’s incredibly hot out. So if there is a different way to accomplish this, I’m totally open to that. I was just thinking that adding and action to IFTTT would be easiest. Again, I’m obviously open to any other actions in IFTTT or other way to accomplish this.
