Issue of the topic: Ok, I get it… No more IFTTT through the cloud connector
So, I understand, due to overuse/abuse, IFTTT is no longer available. I see that I need to create my own instance of the OpenHABCloud connector and also my own hook into IFTTT. I read a guide, and I am not a programmer or anything, so I didn’t quite understand even the first steps, whish were “In python do this…” I don’t know how to start python, or anything. If there is a step-by-step guide for idiots, that would be great.
I read previous posts, and there were comments like: OpenHAB does everything, why would you use IFTTT? I have LED strip lights using Smart Life that I cannot seem to get the localkey from. I had a rooted Android emulator, and I still couldn’t find the localkey. So, that’s why I need IFTTT.
OpenHAB is very flexible but takes a lot of work to understand & configure. I think the personal cloud is meant for those with advanced knowledge.
You may prefer a system such as Home Assistant that caters more to the novice user.
Thanks, I was going to put a post about that. I have walked through that… It took me awhile to get the localkey, but I finally got it. I am actually walking through this again. For some reason, I just can’t seem to control the lights once everything is set up, and I am not sure why. I just tried starting clean and going through everything again, though
I could try that. I was also curious about maybe using a webhook in IFTTT. Hopefully I can get these Tuya lights working, and I won’t have to worry about it . If nothing else, I ordered a new controller for the light strip that I believe is compatible with the wifi smart LED.
