This means that a lot of the smart devices & integrations that you all have been requesting (Tapo, Smart Life, Phillips Hue, Hive Heating, Tado Heating and so much more!) can now be integrated to equiwatt to be automatically turned on & off when an equivent starts & ends.
Please note that we’re releasing this as a beta at this stage, so you will still need to mark your appliances as turned off during an event in-order to get points via your Smart Meter (other than during DFS events). This will be improved in a future update!
@Derek_Streets@Matthew_Dickinson Oddly I can’t seem to recreate this no matter what VPN settings I try to get it to block me. However, I have added some more exceptions to our rulesets that may let your request through now. Could you please let me know if it works for you? If not I may need to first work on creating this issue on my end, or get in touch with you guys directly to see how we might be able to fix this for you guys.
I had a similar problem not notified until 5.10 checked on my Kasa plugs these had not turned off tried manually to turn off but error message said event started unable to turn off, missed out on this event.
IFTTT is in beta, I’d say it’s in the final stage of beta as it works as it should except for event ending trigger for DFS events, and sometimes there’s slight delays with it triggering. We’re hoping to fix this and bring it out of beta within the next 2 weeks.
Regarding notifications, we had some issues with them in the last 2 weeks but we have solved them for now. But the main issue with notifications is that they’re not 100% reliable from Apple & Google’s end. We will be implementing a different type of “priority” notifications in the future, and have some form of prior notice for events as we do for DFS.
