Receive status from water flood sensor using IFTTT
« on: June 08, 2018, 08:22:36 am »
Hello,

I have 3x Wi-Fi MyDlink DCH-S160 flood sensors which supports IFTTT (they are only WiFi devices). I would like somehow to be able receive water detection status (simple on/off) to Dashboard on my Vera Edge.

My idea is to set action in IFTTT if water is detected, send command to Vera and switch some virtual object on dashboard as it would be real water flood sensor.

I am sorry, I am total beginner in Vera world. Is it possible?

I would really appreciate some help with this.

Yes. Look for Virtual Switch.
You'll probably need a bridge, since Vera doesn't support ifttt natively yet.

If your devices have local Api I'll suggest to try to query them locally.
