I am building a basic remote temperature sensor using IFTTT and s Spark variable. Basically, I created a spark variable that passes the current temperature in degrees fahrenheit to IFTTT and then created a rule in IFTTT to trigger an Android alert if the temperature drops below a certain threshold.
Things are working properly and IFTTT is capturing the results. However, there is an oddity. IFTTT keeps sending me alerts about the temperature even though it is above the threshold.
Specifically, the alert threshold is set to 60 and IFTTT is reading a temperature of 71. Curiously, even in this scenario, my phone beeps every minute indicating an alert. If I check the log at IFTTT, it says that I am triggering an alert. (Here is the rule: “Current_Temp on “First Core” is Less or Equal 60”
Why is it triggering? I am passing an INT through the spark variable and the temperature is clearly higher than the threshold. Is this a bug of some sort? Did I do something wrong?
I can share my code and such, but it is clear (looking at the IFTTT log that the data is being transferred properly.)
