How can I connect the Raspberry Pi to IFTTT without using webhooks?

Sat Dec 08, 2018 9:26 am

I know you could use webhooks if the RPI is publicly accessible, but I would like to avoid that. My objective would be asking google assistant to turn on a GPIO pin, then that info magically transferring to the Pi and it running a python script. Any way to do this?

Is that "google assistant" running on the Pi or not ?

You could use "dweet.io" as a middleman.. but then there has to be a script running all the time to watch for "dweets" with instructions.
Also this can take several seconds...
