Its my understanding that you can also call IFTTT webhooks in normal Vera scenes (without PLEG) using os.execute and curl.  Someone mentioned this as a response to a post I made on reddit a few weeks ago.

to recieve webhooks from ifttt i use automate android app on a android box. automate then passes the request on locally to vera. It does this with cloud messaging to recieve and http request locally, so no need to open any ports. It has been very reliable and quick.

Hi, would you be able to give more detail how you set this up?

Thanks

yes just ask for specifics. you need to install automate and ifttt. i have a flow that will recieve webhooks from ifttt and one that will send webhooks. so my flow receives a webhook from ifttt and then passes the webhook on locally with a http request to my vera

https://llamalab.com/automate/doc/block/http_request.html
https://llamalab.com/automate/doc/block/cloud_message_receive.html
https://llamalab.com/automate/cloud/

log in to ifttt website and go to
https://ifttt.com/maker_webhooks
and follow link to documentation, there you will get your secret key.

then you will need to make flows for automate or download from the community and edit for your needs.

you only need to purchase automate if you use more than 30 blocks. i would purchase it any way as it is a excellent app and has many other uses. to make a flow to recieve webhooks and pass it on in http request would only need about 20 blocks.

i can let you have my flows if required
