Re: Chamberlain MyQ Plugin

Just a heads up, I've completely bailed on MyQ... tired of their lack of API, restricted IFTTT commands, and pay structure for IFTTT. I'm using a product called TailWind now. I'm much happier with it, and it has free, unrestricted IFTTT access, which makes it easy to integrate with EG. I'll keep my ...

Re: How to make a HTTP POST to "IFTTT"?

I know this is old, but I just saw these messages. In order to send a message from IFTTT, you do two things. 1. Set up the webserver plugin on the EG side, and make sure you open/forward a port in your firewall for the incoming traffic. 2. On the maker platform, build an applet, where the action is ...

Re: How to make a HTTP POST to "IFTTT"?

I was unable to get Pako's code to work - some issue with self signed certificate in the chain?? After some farting around, I came up with this simplified version (via stackoverflow) that seems to work fine: import requests event = "EventGhost" #Your IFTTT Webhook Request EventString apikey = "xx-xx...

Re: Amazon Echo Skill EchoToEventGhost

Thanks for sharing your code! I'm hoping that Amazon will release the Voice ID stuff soon. That would be another great addition, to know who is speaking the command for even more customization. For example, I'd like to limit what zones my kids control (I don't really want them turning the fireplace ...

Re: Time to say goodbye

THANK YOU for all of your contributions! I too am looking to move to something else, but I plan on using EG for a short time longer. I would be interested to see what you've done with Node Red. At any rate, it was great learning from you. You've done some awesome work here, and like the others state...

Re: Pushover plugin

Another thought I had:

If you really need a comprehensive Pushover plugin, you might consider wrapping this library that someone else created into an EventGhost plugin. It seems to be pretty complete.

Re: Pushover plugin

The plugin is only 60 lines of code. It should be really easy to modify to provide a priority. Just add it to the JSON POST message. The only quirk I see in the API is that if you select Emergency Priority, it will also require you to specify "retry" and "expire" parameters as well.

Re: Pushover plugin

The plugin works just fine. I suspect you don't have the right information loaded for the configuration. Put your user key (this is NOT the same as your username) into the "User:" field. It will be some crazy looking string. For the token field, you must "register an application/create an api token"...

Re: New version 0.5.0-beta5 is out

I would like to give a description on how the GUID on the tree items works. Hopefully this at some point be a replacement for the XmlIdLink that is used when manipulating a tree item from an action.

Re: Amazon Echo Skill EchoToEventGhost

Does anyone know how to delay Alexa from looking at the response from the webserver? I have an issue where my API calls to other services take so long, that the response is not set in time for Alexa to have the proper response data. I just need her to wait another second or two.

TIA
Ryan
