I was pretty excited about discovering IFTTT, was able to setup a few routines and they worked, however; they are way too slow. I set one up to flash my lights when my Ring Doorbell detected motion. Imagine my surprise when my flights flash and I delightfully bounded up the stairs to meet the Amazon man. But he was almost out of my driveway! Then running a few more tests told me that the delays could be as long as 3 min before my phone tells me or lights flash. I wonder if I could do this with Core. I still don’t have that setup but am trying to figure it out.
Is what I am trying to do difficult? Ideally, when Ring detects motion, I would like JUST the lights in my office and wife’s office to FLASH a few times in red. IFTTT couldn’t select a room or set of bulbs to my knowledge, either 1 bulb or every bulb in the Hue system.
