Been using Smartthings for about two weeks. Having fun setting up stuff. But one of the main purposes I purchased ST for was to have a window AC unit turn on and off at preset temps via the multisensor. I am using two IFTTT recipes. Simple if temp goes above X then turn on AC (which is connected to Smartthings switch included in my kit), and another to turn it off once another lower temp is met.
It has worked once or twice, but not reliably. When I log into the ST app and click on the sprocket for the multisensor I see readings for temp (although there does appear to sometimes be large gaps in between readings, like an hour or so).
When I log into IFTTT and look at the logs I do occasionally get “Trigger Timeout Error about 2 hours ago
SmartThings or its API may temporarily be down. After five consecutive errors, the Recipe will automatically turn off”.
All of my other IFTTT recipes seem to be working without issue including ones that use that same multisensor (example: when open send iOS alert).
Any suggestions? Does the multisensor have a predetermined interval for checking temp?
