Ifttt trigger enhancements to work better

by ssmeke ‎09-09-2017 06:50 PM - edited ‎09-09-2017 06:52 PM

Currently, the ifttt triggers for:

Off and on
- and -
On and off

Function by sending two triggers to the device. This presents a problem when using wemo devices to toggle devices which affect the network.

A very strong use case for a wemo outlet is to restart a router if network connection is lost, or upon getting a request by any ifttt trigger. This small change could enable those situations to function. Currently, a "off then on" instruction to a wemo outlet powering a router will just shut it down, never to start again.

 

Tldr; iftt "off then on" and "on then off" instructions should not require two separate network requests.

Thank you,
Salomon
