I stopped recommending the Naran Microbot Push to other people in late 2017 after they began requiring a monthly subscription cost for new customers. I just felt they were going to be too expensive for most people. And while the engineering isn’t as good, Switchbot did provide a less expensive alternative for some use cases.
I just received notification that Naran Is going to drop its IFTTT channel because of the expense. You will still be able to use web hooks with IFTTT for some integrations, but the set up will be more complicated.
Here’s the notice from IFTTT
On July 15th, the Naran MicroBot services and related Applets will be removed from IFTTT. These include:
Thank you for your understanding.
The IFTTT Team
And here’s Naran’s explanation and how to use web hooks:
We appreciate your loyal patronage of our products.
As we have encountered difficulties and shift in business status, we had to make the difficult decision to discontinue the IFTTT integration service.
However, please note that you can still connect your MicroBots with other services by using ’Webhooks’ function of IFTTT.
We apologize for your inconvenience.
