Help creating recipe with IFTTT


1) Give a description of the problem
I’m trying to use IFTTT to set turn on my space heater for a specified amount of time.

2) What is the expected behavior?
I was wondering if there was a way for IFTTT to send a text value to WebCORE.

3) What is/is not happening?
I want to be able to set the timer as a variable instead of a set amount.
**4) Post a Green Snapshot of the piston![image|45x37]

(The heater turning on and off are IFTTT events because the smart plug is a Kasa device.

If a solution is found for your question then please mark the post as the solution.


What are you using to trigger the IFTTT recipe? Does the “if” portion have a number field ingredient?

If so, you can add that to a JSON payload sent with the webhooks POST action.

Click on the image to see the JSON portion of the action.

Once in webCore, you can then access it via the $args variable/expression.

Wait {$args.duration} minutes;

Keep light on when manually turned on turn off after set time when IFTTT turned on

I did this and IFTTT gave a 404 error. What could have gone wrong?

Thanks for all of your help.


404 error is a page not found error. Are you sure you have the URL correct in your recipe?


I double checked. Here are screenshots)


don’t use the pound(#) character in the URL/IFTTT trigger.


You’re also going to have to change your IFTTT ‘that’ to a POST instead of a GET request.


It worked. I also deleted those screenshots with the real link as a security precaution.

I really appreciate your help.


good call on deleting the screenshot. Glad it worked!
