Smart device

action

Trigger a smart device, device group or scene.

Currently smart devices from the following services are supported:

  • eWeLink
  • Tuya Smart Life

In order to use this step, you must first link your smart device account via the linked services page.

As smart devices are manufactured by many different companies, the effectiveness of this step can vary from device to device. It can sometimes take some trial and error to determine the correct property and values to use. Also note that groups and scenes may not be applicable for all device types.

If you have any questions or feedback or there is another service you'd like to see added, please post in the Q&A forums or contact me via the contact form.

Inputs

Type

The type of device you want to control. This can be one of the following:

  • Device - a single device, such as a switch or smart bulb
  • Device group - a group of devices configured within the smart device app
  • Scene - a scene configured in your home from within the smart device app

Name

The name of the device, device group or scene to trigger.

Property

The property of the device or group you wish to modify. The list of properties and the display name varies from device to device.

This is not applicable for scenes as scenes can only be triggered.

Action or value

The action to perform (for example turn on or turn off) or the new value to set.

Depending on the device and property, some values may be limited to a certain list of values or a range of numbers.

If the value is a free text field, you can also enter the value of a variable by enclosing the name of the variable in square brackets (eg ppl_at_home) and you can enter the value of a sequence parameter by enclosing the parameter name in curly brackets (eg {current_temp}).

The action/value field is not applicable for scenes as scenes can only be triggered.
