I have been running a particle (photon) applet on IFTTT for 4+ years. Ran 8600 times. It responds to a published event and sends a text message. The IFTTT applet used to run within about 10 seconds of the photon event so the text message came quickly. Now it is taking anywhere from 2 minutes to 90 (NINETY) minutes to run and IFTTT reports an average of one hour. Of course, IFTTT blames particle.io for these delays. But the event I publish contains a timestamp and the Photon goes out every 15 minutes to update its local clock to ensure the time stamp is always accurate. So I can see the text message at 6 pm, for example, and read in the event that it triggered at 5:15 pm. .
This L O N G delay in receiving the text message has made this application nearly useless. To find out 90 minutes later that the even triggered is meaningless. Imagine if this was reporting a fire.
Is anyone else experiencing similar delays in IFTTT from published particle.io events? IFTTT just blames Particle for it.
