Trigger by incoming mail


#1

I’m looking for a way to trigger actions from an incoming email. I’m aware of IFTT, but in this case the sender email address is a 3rd party (meaning I can’t confirm the email address for IFTT-usage).

Recently installed a new security system. The only way to recognise whether it’s enabled/disabled is that it’s able send out an email to any email address I specify. My goal is to use those emails to tell Homey whether I’m home or away (which impact various other flows).

Example of emails: https://d.pr/i/uKoQU8

Does anyone have any idea how to connect this to Homey somehow?

Thanks in advance!!!

Regards,

Wilco

Hi @wilco05,

i would try the email service from IFTTT with an O365 (suppose you can use outook.com too) or gmail mailbox
https://ifttt.com/office_365_mail
https://ifttt.com/gmail

and let IFTTT trigger an flow when the specific message is received.

Thanks! Appreciate it.

Will give the Gmail app a go to see how fast it is (some flows should be instant instead of with a delay).
