IFTTT Not Connecting

1 comment

Edited: Mar 19, 2018

Hi - I've been able to set up the new bot with my phone and with a remote, but am unable to make the connection to IFTTT and Alexa. Whether by the mobile IFTTT app, or the browser - no device is populating in the drop down when setting up a task.


Everything appears to be running fine - the hub is rainbow colored, and the bot is connected. Additionally, the Swtich-Bot has been given access to the IFTTT account successfully.


Device: Samsung Note 8

Android Version: 7.1.1

Never mind - this is resolved now. For the sake of helping others - this was resolved by toggling the hub to AUTO after having connected to the bot. Additionally, I found that when trying to connect my Smart-Bot account to IFTTT on my Android, it would not provide me the option to connect the accounts. Performing this step on the IFTTT website did.


Oh - and another thing, "Press", "On" and "Off" are all treated differently. Which is great, but in my frustration to resolve, it was a reason I at times didn't see my bot appear in the drop down.


Hope this helps! Everything is working great now.

    I have a number of different kinds of smart devices assigned to particular rooms in my google home, including switchbots. when I give a specific command for a switchbot, it works fine, but if I give a room level command, such as, turn on all the living room lights, all of the devices in the living room respond, except for the switchbot (even though they are most definitely assigned to that room in Google home). This occurs in every room where I have a switchbot, and all batteries are fine on the switchbots, so this is a program level issue. please tell me how to fix this, or if you are already aware that this is an issue that you are working on currently.

    Hi,there. I'm doubted that even this writings are written on your post :) On the feedback messanger, you guys asked me to upload my firmware info on my app and devices. And I sent you and waited for 4 days(2days if counting business days). Today, I got the message I didnt reply anything. Wow.... A week ago, I firstly post that your device doesn't recognize the basic timer and the things I've been replied are what is your firmware version? and ignoring messages...

    La télécommande freebox semble être une telecommande radio et non IR. Impossible de l’ajouter au hub ??
