Users may ask: whether my devices connected with SONOFF can now be set the condition or perform device to trigger another one or be triggered in IFTTT application? Some of our SONOFF users noticed that their own SONOFF smart devices cannot be controlled based on triggers, conditions and actions in IFTTT component. However, some free eWeLink users still can use IFTTT service to manage SONOFF smart devices. Why did this happen? And will the free eWeLink users be limited to access IFTTT service for control of SONOFF someday?
As for the control of SONOFF smart devices in IFTTT service, please view the statement as below:
- Only eWeLink advanced users have access to IFTTT.
- If you want to use IFTTT, please update your eWeLink account to the advanced level immediately; if don’t want, leave out this update.
- As for free eWeLink users, all the applets you create with your eWeLink account will be cleared completely and can’t be reversed. So to make sure your current connection with SONOFF devices can continue to perform, you would better update it to the advanced level.
- You are the free user but can also run SONOFF devices in IFTTT at present, you are still recommended to update your eWeLink account to the advanced level immediately so that your current connection is not cleared.
