Hi DerekI'm trying to do some work on this project after a long time off. IFTTT has become too expensive for me, so I'm pulling the plug. I'm using Wireless sensor Tags (https://wirelesstag.net/) and have been for years. They measure the temps of a couple of water tanks. Typically I've evaluated in IFTTT then written to variables in SQM but I'm now trying to bypass IFTTT.However, I've ben trying to write the temps into SQM variables and it keeps adding questions marks to the end of the variable

Now my sequences just say "There are no compatible devices on your account." under smart device. I checked for outages, but it shows there are no current outages. All the devices are still listed in my Smart Life app and are working there. On the linked services page, my Smart Life account shows as linked and clicking the refresh button updates the Last Refreshed date/time.

I understand that this could be accomplished by using an outside service to call a variable webhook, but it would be great to be able to do it within the Sequematic environment.If not, is there a good, inexpensive external service that anyone is aware of that has access to temperature data and could be used to set the value of a Sequematic variable hourly to the current temperatur

For the last 5 days or so any sequence which calls an IFTTT applet returns ‘error’ in the  sequence log.  I have refreshed my IFTTT key and updated the setting in Sequematic but still no luck.  IFTTT shows no activity for the relevant applets so I assume the webhook call isn’t reaching their server.

It all worked perfectly and I have many more that I was going to create, however while looking through the Q&A I've found a reply that says "Google are discontinuing their Actions on Google service".

I have a couple of sequences that are run every morning. One updates a weather condition variable at 11:20 am and the other is set to run at 11:30 am and looks up the result of the first to determine its behaviour.  I have noticed in the logs that since switching to daylight savings, the second sequence is now triggering incorrectly at 10:30 am, while the first is operating correctly at 11:20. This is not playing nicely with my logic.Please advise.

Currently it's only possible to test whether a Tuya device is on or off in a condition. Is it possible for a trigger step to be created that fires when a given device turns on or off? Otherwise, it's hard to synchronise Sequematic's idea of each device's state with its actual state.I can think of two workarounds if not. Firstly, I could route all interaction with my smart devices through Sequematic, and update a variable in Sequematic when changing the state; this breaks if I ever use another wa

for the life of me I can't get google assistant to understand me when I say 'sequematic' using either sequence or segue as the phonetic base.my immediate solution is to use home voice routines to trigger typed out commands which eliminates the 'tell sequematic to run' preface so bonus, but I am curious about what pronunciation will work.

could you maybe add an option to add step above, instead of just below?and maybe an option to copy a step and paste it above or below any other step in the sequence, instead of "duplicate step" which always puts it under the orginal step and then we have to move it up/down 1 step at a time which takes quite a bit of time in a longer sequence. would be nice if this could be done ;)

Hi Derek, I think can be an improvement if we can add a starting time for the "every XX" time trigger, so we can select the exact momento to start counting down. For example, if i'm not wrong, If I want something to happen every o'clock hour, right now we have to create the sequence an activate it in the o'clock moment with a "every 60 minutes" trigger. With this idea, you can do it when you want but the trigger will start counting 60 minutes down starting at the  time you set in

I have webhooks set up in IFTTT which transfer the current external temperature to a sequematic variable (Temperature) which is then used as a condition for a sequence to activate my heating. The webhooks are activated when weather conditions change so the sequematic variable is kept reasonably up to date.Is it possible to pass the sequematic variable value into a sequematic-originated email so I can check the temperature without having to log-in and read the value on the sequematic website?

The sequence log is very powerful, but is it possible to see or store the LOG for a longer period?Now that I am using Sequematic more and more, my sequence log is filled fast.... I cannot see or check what errors might have happened.Is there a way to store the LOG externally? Fi on Google Drive?Perhaps you can create a sequence for that?

I have found a solution to use geofencing in SEQUEmatic. With geofencing I mean check if someone is nearby a location, instead of checking if someone is at a location.For that I simply use three variables:VAR1 = Latitude coordinates of someoneVAR2 = Longitude coordinates of someoneVAR3= <TRUE> or <FALSE> in case someone is nearby a locationI found that a 0.1 deviation in latitude or longitude value means approx 15-20 driving from the location and that is somewhat I need to trigg

Hi again!As I now successfully get decimal values to variables from IFTTT, I'm having problems using them in sequences. I am trying to set a ventilation boost when shower humidity is higher than indoor humidity, but the sequence always exits at the comparison "if showerHumidity is above livingroomHumidity", even though shower humidity is higher.Ideally what I would want to compare (and what I originally tried) is "if showerHumidity is above livingroomHumidity + 5", so that a small difference won

I see someone has posted a similar question earlier in the year, but it looks like the error is still present. I cannot work around it because it is causing duplicate triggers for me.Most of the time the Sequematic related applets are labelled as skipped in the IFTTT log, but sometimes the same applets are labelled as failed. IFTTT retries the failed applets 6-7 minutes later, which does cause me a problem because my sequences will be re-run � resulting in unwanted events and activities. Do

Hi!I'm trying to update a variable with a temperature value from Netatmo via IFTTT webhooks. The value is a decimal value which I don't know how to format in the URL to get it to work. If I try it manually with an integer value or a random string value it works. The problem seems to be that the value (20 in the example string) would actually be output by IFTTT as "20.00", which if added to the end of the string, will cause an Not Found error to occur in sequematic.http://sequematic.com/variable-

Hi there. I've used both Stringify and Apilio in the past - but as the first was stopped and latter starts to charge, I'm looking into Sequematic to rebuild my automations.At the end of a sequence, i like to call an IFTTT webhook to send a notification that displays a text string coming from the sequence that is running. Just wondering how to ? (There is of course a workaround creating different webhooks for each message - but that's not very elegant.)

It would be useful if you could check if a variable 'contains' a value. I'd like to use a variable to hold a string and do a check to see if a certain portion of the string is within the variable.

Another idea; the option to copy/paste sequences. This helps faster creation of similar sequences, like geofencing for multiple people.

You can use the helper (see https://sequematic.com/helpers) to automatically create sequences to trigger things when someone comes/leaves home.The helper is set up based on counting the people at home.I have setup checking people at home differently. It costs a little more work, but you'll be more in control.
