The standard IFTTT applet for time only allows me to set events every quarter hour. How do I set an event to trigger at 7:40 on Tuesday and Thursday? Specifically activating a Philips Hue blinking.
You can do a bit of a gnarly workaround if you have a Google Calendar account.
- Create a new Calendar (e.g. "IFTTT Blink")
- Create weekly repeating events for Tuesdays and Thursdays in that calendar
- In IFTTT, use the "Any Event Starts" trigger for Google Calendar, and choose your IFTTT Blink calendar
In my experience the events trigger dead on time, but of course there's always a risk of a small delay - that's just in the nature of these things.
(This may also work with IFTTT's other calendar integrations, but I haven't tried them.)
