So, I have been using IFTTT (Pro account) with my cameras and sensors for some time, including my outdoor Cam. Among several recipes/applets, I have an alert from IFTTT when the outdoor cam reaches low battery it will send me a push notification, and trigger some other actions as a backup to me checking the battery status every few weeks or so. It and all my other recipes have been working fine for over a year or longer in the case of my sensors. Today I got alerts from IFTTT that the applet was disabled because of repeated failures. I logged in to IFTTT to check the activity on that applet (and other Wyze based applets), and it shows the failures for all Wyze based services started occurring early today the 29th, at 2:54am and have been failing since.
Now none of my devices show up in the lists when trying to edit existing applets, or creating news ones.
Looking at the XHR response from IFTTT to Wyze I am seeing this:
“error”: “Exception occurred: Remote Service Error”,
Looking at the activity history, I see only two other failures, also recently on June 24th.
Not sure if this is IFTTT’s service failing, or if its the Wyze endpoint that is failing - all things being equal, none of my other IFTTT services are failing - only applets relying on Wyze’s endpoints/APIs.
Anyone else seeing this?
Is there a simple quick way to re-establish connectivity between Wyze and IFTTT - I double checked the service and my credentials are all still fine and it says its connected, but clearly there is something going on with Wyze backend services for IFTTT.
Appreciate any guidance or info.
UPDATE: Disabled and re-enabled the Wyze service integration on IFTTT and my camera and sensors lists are showing up again, but trying to confirm them from IFTTT’s interface, results in a new error showing “Please select a valid option” - because there is a validation request that goes back out to Wyze, and apparently that is failing now - something is definitely up with the Wyze backend portion.
I also just realized that some remote cameras that have been shared with me, which are up and online, are now greyed out in the app and unreachable, which again tells me this is a Wyze infrastructure/service issue.
