If we have a SwitchBot Hub device connected to our account, we can integrate the SwitchBot Lock with IFTTT.
Once the integration is complete, we can use SwitchBot Lock as a trigger to create automation on IFTTT.
Why can't we control the lock with IFTTT?
No Home-assistant, no IFTTT, no commands for the lock actions, no Webhooks, no other ways to controll the lock other then the slow app.. Just status queries.
realy sad, that device is "advertised" as "IFTTT" enabled? But no "actions", such as "lock" and "unlock" availabe??? Even Google-Assistant can do this (with PIN)!!! When will this functionality be availabe??
I've set up IFTTT integration for my lock. All "locked", "unlocked", "door closed" triggers are working. But the "door opened" trigger never worked. I tried creating a new one, but no luck. Could you help?
Hello, I have this integration running. The key is that you can use the IFTTT status to send a Webhook to Home-Assitant. This will create a virtual sensor (door:), wich then can be used in the dasboard, or automation.
Then you can user status of "sensor.door_lock" in your automation or dashboard. Regards.
I also integrated it into my home assistant. The locked, unlocked and door closed works good. But the issue for me is, there is no activity in IFTTT for door opened trigger.
Can you try the "door opened" state updates in IFTTT and see if it works for you?
There is no "Then" option in IFTTT for the Lock, so you can check its status but you can't lock/unlock.
This is really bad. Since Google Home and IFTTT integration are advertised as present and fully funcional, if this feature is not completed in the next couple of months, I will return&refund the Lock on Amazon
same here.. I will return mine too as I fell for the advertisements..
Or does anyone know a workaround on how to unlock with IFTT or Siri shortcuts?
