Trouble getting cloudbits to trigger IFTTT applets

@ejbiegel and @rsadkowski

Any updates on this ? I’m new to Littlebits and since 2 weeks I’m trying to have my Cloudbit to trigger recipes in IFTTT with no success. I don’t know if the problem comes from IFTTT not registering the Cloudbit trigger when it comes or if the Cloudbit itself doesn’t send the right signal.

In any case , when I go in the Littlebits app on my iPhone, the CloudBit is online and I can receive and send data through the app. I’m just not able to connect it to IFTTT.

Best !

Last time I heard they’ll address it next year.
I’m contemplating selling my kit, but then who’s going to buy it? Paperweight.

Any updates on this issue yet?

@sean_littleBits @chloeatplay
Are you still cooperating with IFTTT? Or maybe you are closing this service ? It will really make the cloudbit completely useless.
Or are you coming up with another service in the new setup of Littlebits?
Please can you explain and make a solution, many members are waiting a very long time now…
My cloudbit is sending and receiving with no problem. But at IFTTT everything is dead.

i don’t suppose asking again will help bump this. so disappointing

I asked on Twitter and they told me to write to support at littleBits. If we all tweet to Ayah Bedir (@ayahbdeir) at the same time on the same day, perhaps we could bump the issue?

Who’s in?

i’d do it. not sure i have much twitter sway

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…

Hi @alexpikkert. I teach IoT to middle schoolers and MESH is a great solution. They have a littleBit connector, so you can still use your bits.

Valued Inventors, we have heard your questions and concerns about our cloudBit IOT connections. We want you to know that we are listening and we are working on repairing the connection so you can connect to IFTTT applets and other utilization functions of the cloud API.

Until further notice, the CloudBit software service is down for maintenance. We apologize for this inconvenience and we hope to have this resolved in the first quarter of 2019.

We thank you all for your patience while we sort this out and, as always, we look forward to seeing what you invent.

Good morning,
Is there any update on this or a rough idea on when this would be resolved?
Many thanks

Yeah, they should be able to give us an ETA by now, if Q1 is the target still.

Any update on this?
Last week littleBits Cloud was working fine, now I get the following message:
“Unable to communicate with the littleBits Cloud HTTP API”

Ok. End of first quarter 2019 is this weekend.
No solution yet.
When are we getting a refund?

Hi All,

cloudBit Services were fully restored over the weekend. Feel free to email support@littleBits.com if you are still having issues.

That’s great news! Does that also include the IFTTT service?

Yes, IFTTT is working as well with cloudBits (although, probably needs more testing).

Could we get a confirmation from another user? I’m getting errors when trying to connect to the service.

Hi friends of the CloudBit.

Alas, I could not even connect a brand new CloudBit to the service. Perhaps my AT&T fiber optic router prevented the connection? Maybe an old tried and true CloudBit will connect?

Will update this thread if I am able to connect an olde byt.
