I used the WeMo Maker (and magnetic switch) to control my garage door. It works like a charm... However, I would like to automate this further by creating one of the following IFTTT rules:

  • if the wemo switch is NOT trigerred and I enter the area OPEN the garage door by "turn relay on momentarily"
  • if I eneter the area "turn relay on momentarily" only if the switch is NOT triggered

As far as I see the IFTTT does not allow the creation of the AND condition. I explored possibility of using the two rules, 1st checks one condition and if this condition is met it triggers another rule to check for another condition, but I cannot figure it out (sending an email and acting on the email is not an option due to long lag in receiving an email)

 

Any suggestions? Maybe WeMo or IFTTT could incorporate new condition and actions to their WeMo Maker possibilities.

I have a 2Gig Go Alarm system that is able to control my Z-Wave Locks/Lights/Thermostat but I would to also intergrate some Wifi Devices. I honestly didn't see how it would be possible unless someone makes a Z-Wave/Wifi Bridge; or some other type of device. I wonder if it would be possible to use the We-Mo Maker to do some sort of intergration. The 2Gig panel has a few wired sensor inputs and an open collector output and an external bell output. The Specs for the open collector output specs are:

 

SOLID STATE OUTPUT
The Control Panel provides one (1) solid state output that
can be programmed to activate during various conditions.
The output can switch up to 250 mA @ 16 VDC to ground.

 

It seems the We-Mo Maker only does 12v DC or 24v DC output but I wonder what else can be done with the relay/sensor ports with the right programming.

This video specifies when an alarm goes off, but as you can see you can also set it by sensor activity like door opening or motion sensor being triggered.
