Continuing the discussion from Trying to get "HTTP Motion Endpoint" to work from Blue Iris or web browser:
Well, I’ve found a workable solution to this, using IFTTT. It’s not ideal, but it’s working, until I can either figure out why it won’t work directly, or get input from anyone who’s successfully done it.
Here’s what I did to get this working.
- Set up outlet or switch in Smartthings.
- Create an IFTTT account, and connect TWO channels to it. a) Smartthings and b) Maker.
- In IFTTT, make a new “Recipe” (you will create 2 total). I called my first one “BlueIrisCam2On” (you may use whatever you want).
- Use “BlueIrisCam2On” as the Trigger.
- Select “Turn On” as the Action, and select your Outlet or Switch to turn on.
- Create a SECOND IFTTT Recipe, called “BlueIrisCam2Off”.
- Use “BlueIrisCam2Off” as the Trigger.
- Select “Turn Off” as the Action, and select the SAME outlet or switch to turn off.
Now, in Blue Iris, under the camera properties, go to the Alerts page.
- Enable “Request from a web service”
- Click on “Configure” button.
- In the “When Triggered” box, enter this:
maker.ifttt.com/trigger/(BlueIrisCam2On)/with/key/(Enter Your Maker Key Here)
(Replace the (BlueIrisCam2On) with your ON Trigger Name)
(Replace the (Enter Your Maker Key Here) with your key, from the “Maker” Channel screen in IFTTT. They are all different.
- In the “Request again when trigger is reset” box, enter this:
maker.ifttt.com/trigger/(BlueIrisCam2Off)/with/key/(Enter Your Maker Key Here)
(Replace the (BlueIrisCam2Off) with your OFF Trigger Name)
(Replace the (Enter Your Maker Key Here) with your key, from the “Maker” Channel screen in IFTTT. They are all
That’s it! If you trigger the camera, your switch or outlet should come on!
I hope this helps someone, somewhere.
