activate zipato daylight virtual sensor at sunrise

Note on JAN 29, 2014: Zipato has released today a new firmware for the Zipabox that add support to sunset/sunrise events. You should try it first ;-) Here's a trick to enable sunrise/sunset events to be managed by the Zipabox. 1. Create a "daylight" virtual sensor in your zipato dashboard. Note the activation and deactivation URL. As IFTTT cannot simply make http requests for the moment I used the google drive channel: the "upload file from URL" will trigger the activation/deactivation URL on the zipabox. 2. Use a first IFTTT recipe to activate the daylight sensor at sunrise 3. Use a second IFTTT recipe to deactivate the daylight sensor at sunset
