Does anyone have experience of using a smart wi-fi spur with IFTTT and Ocotpus Agile?

 

I’d like to use one of these to tell my Sunamp (and Willis heaters when/if we need them) to fire up when the Agile price goes below a set figure. 
 

Would one of these do the trick?

Who can say...they don't provide any information on the website about how you set the thing up. Get in touch with the seller and see if they have a manual for it first.

Shelly can do IFTTT so just hook it in line with the boost immersion on the tank ..?

Probably best to use a 1PM so you can also power monitor and understand the load.

Bugg*ry bollox. I’ve just watched the little vid on that Shelly website, is there nothing Shelly can’t do! I’ll give a lot of it a miss, (especially the camera in the hallway!) but thanks for the steer I shall definitely look in to the 1PM. 
 

I’m sure I’ll be berated for being a Luddite for not knowing about this stuff but how is this different/better than other home automation stuff?

 

(When does school end, I’m almost full up with learning?)

I was recommended a Shelly 1 by @PeterW and have been using it to turn my rads on upstairs. Using the app on my phone I can set it like a normal timer clock so it turns the pump on at whatever time I need during the week. You can also just load up the app and turn it on as well. 

Very easy to set up using wago connectors and a  few wires to turn a massive amount of things on and off. 

The Facebook support group is also very good.

Thanks @Declan52 it’s certainly on my ‘to do’ list to see what I can use it for.

That does look like the one for me. I’ve got a lot of learning to do as I’ll want the Sunamp to come on when the electricity price goes below ‘X’ and switch off when it goes above ‘X’ which I think the combination of Octopus Agile/IFTTT and the Shelly 1PM should do for me but I fear it won’t be easy for me to line those ducks up, especially as I don’t do FB. YouTube it is I reckon.
 

And lots of head scratching.

@PeterW the Shelley 1PM is in control of the Sunamp, just need to  sort out the IFTTT side to things so that it has full control.
 

Thanks again for the ‘heads up’ on the Shelly stuff, brilliant kit.
