Thread: IFTTT Channel?

  1. #1

    IFTTT Channel?

    Model :

    Hardware Version :

    Firmware Version :

    ISP : [/COLOR]

    Does TP-Link have an IFTTT channel? I don't see one and WeMO, DLink etc all do. I cant believe I bought the only one that doesn't? I have 6 plugs and 3 wall switches. All I want to do is turn on a set of devices with an event.

    Yup, completely agree! It didn't even occur to me that they would not be controllable through ifttt! Thinking of returning mine to Amazon

    Hardware vendors should start with support IFTTT as first action. It's great that the smart plug support the amazon echo, but starting with IFTTT make much more sense as the echo support IFTTT. Hope IFTTT support will come soon.

    I came here to say this is much needed feature. I will buy other brands in the future, as TP-link is the only one not supporting IFTTT. Is it difficult to implement IFTTT support?

    If I buy amazon Alexa will I then get IFTTT features for my TP-link smartplugs?

    Another vote here for IFTTT immediate support. Agree with the comment that hardware manufacturers should offer this out of the gate. (Tho, I recognize the trend is to get something out, however, imperfect and hope enough people will forgive you that you gain mind/ market share.) I have several Amazon Echo devices, but Amazon's search is still so lame. I have a Google Home and as soon as it has caught up to Echo/ Alexa on basic functionality, I'll switch to using it as my primary home automation controller/ personal assistant.

    No, you will not get IFTTT for Tp-Link when you buy an Echo.... until Tp-link makes that service available. I'm guessing that there is some fee IFTTT charges to have a company use its service.

    I too want IFTTT but I think Tp-link has to pay some fee to have its products work with IFTTT. I looked on IFTTT's web site and anyone can become a developer but it costs money.

    It's free to develope skills for Amazon's Alexa. But lack of support for IFTTT from Tp-link will make me go with Wemo for any other smart home purchases.

    I'll add my urgent request for tp-link to add IFTTT functionality. This will greatly expand the ability to control switches, etc. with different inputs. It will also help bridge the gap of controlling devices across different manufacturers.

    Yes, please add IFTTT support.

    TPLink - An update on this would be appreciated. Just bought four of your adaptors only to find no IFTTTT integration. This continued situation will only result in poor feedback and returned items..

    Well, I contacted support and this was their answer:

    "Sincerely sorry for the inconvenience caused by our products. Sorry that our products disappoint you, as they don't support IFTTT. We also recognize the shortcoming of our product, and our R&D technicians are planning to make our product available for IFTTT recently. We are sorry that we can tell when it will be available as our technicians need time to test it to make sure the product could work properly with IFTTT protocol. Your understanding would be much appreciated."

    So I have asked why this is so challenging for TPLINK given this has been going on for months and also asked just how much longer they are expecting us to wait given competitors have introduced IFTTT much more quickly.

    This is what I got from support: "We don't have a exact date. Our engineers are working on Android Weave. IFTTT is not on the plan for now."

    It's not technically challenging it's that they don't want to pay the incense fee to IFTTT
