I'd like to be able to trigger specific recipes with HomeKit automation
Although there is no way to do this directly in HomeKit, its not something Apple support, you can do via the Apple Shortcuts App using the IFTTT maker channel.Using IFTTT WebhooksIf (WEBHOOKS) = receive a web request - "run-recipe"Then, (HEATMISER) = run recipeIn shortcut appConfigure like this The blanked out text is your Webhooks key, found under Services/Webhooks/Settings on your IFTTT accounthttps://www.heatmiser.com/en/download/211/english/11829/maker.jpg
It took me a while to do this but it is done and it would seem like a good solution if I had one recipe. The proposed shortcut allows you to run a recipe for one IFTTT applet referring to one recipe. If I would like to run one recipe this way and another time another recipe, the shortcut will not work. Even if I create two IFTTT applets for 2 different recipes, the shortcut always refers to one webhook code. This way i can't change a recipe from one recipe to another. Is there any way to solve this?
Each trigger would need a unique web request name, run recipe above change to run-recipe1, for example. You reference that in the HomeKit shortcut.
