Hi @enoch and @Thingfully,
I have recently sent a request to the support team to solve the IFTTT issue that is blocking the use of the cloudbit already for a few years and received this answer:
I'm so sorry about that! We are currently investigating the connectivity between our cloud servers and IFTTT because it seems like some cloudBits are not connecting with IFTTT 100% of the time. Our engineering team is working on a fix, but we don't have an ETA at the moment. It sounds like you may be working on a deadline, and we don't want you to miss it, so we, unfortunately, have to recommend that you find another IOT solution for your project.
We do apologize for the inconvenience.
PS I am now waiting for a suggestion for another Iot soulution....
