Nope, that’s not possible with IFTTT.

IFTTT is much more simplistic than that: one trigger causes one action.

It would be nice to have Stringify integration for Wyzecam. That way you can have multiple ifs and thens ie: if nighttime and if motion detection then turn on light(s) and then timer for x minutes then turn off light(s). Or then video clip
I’m doing this with my Nest cameras: if weather underground service is nighttime and Nest camera sees person, then turn on 3 different lights, and timer for several minutes then turn off lights. Works great, Makes it appear that someone has spotted the person and is turning lights on to see who it is.

Is it possible to have the Then action be
send an email with the video attachment?

The If would be Motion detected.


#25

It’s possible to have IFTTT send an email. But it is not possible for it to include a video. There is not channel to pass the video from Wyze to IFTTT… IFTTT is just not that sophisticated.

Anyone have any experience with IFTTT and smart locks? I have a Schlage deadbolt and I’d like to set my Wyze cams to turn on when the door is locked and off when the door is unlocked. Seems like this should be possible with IFTTT because it supports the lock.

If there is a Schlage lock trigger (IF step) for IFTTT, then you would create a recipe that combines that with a Wyze action of camera on/off.

However, in searching IFTTT for Schlage, I do not see any Schlage service. What makes you think the Schlage lock is supported by IFTTT?

Even if there was a Schlage lock/unlock trigger, how would it know if you were locking when arriving home or locking when leaving? Unless you truly only want to have the camera on while the door is unlocked, I think you might be better off using the IFTTT location trigger combined with the Wyze actions.
