Long story short, I’ve been out of town, and I have both my Rachio and a refrigerator/freezer on the same ground-fault. I’ve had the ground-fault trip during a bad storm, and I’d like to know if it tripped so that I can have neighbors reset the ground-fault so that I don’t lose everything in the freezer. So I had a moment of brilliance and realized that I had an IFTTT set up since last September that would send me an email should the Rachio go offline. I had a power outage while I was gone - I was able to see in my Rachio Device Updates that it did a “Device Power Status Cycle”, so I knew that I had lost electricity at some point. And then it dawned on me that I’ve never gotten anything from my IFTTT in my email, even when that ground-fault was tripped long enough for things to start melting in my freezer (I’m pretty sure that was on May 2).
I took a look at the activity history on the ITTT Applet, and this is what I found:
This looks like it might not be IFTTT but something from the Rachio end?
And I’m also wondering what the logic is. Does IFTTT wait for Rachio to send a device offline event to it? Would that be the 24 hour time frame? If so, then does that mean that it doesn’t make sense to use this applet?
