RSS feeds used in the Feed service have a few requirements:

I’m having trouble getting the Harmony service to work correctly

The Harmony service currently works with Ultimate Home, Home Control, or Home Hub products. Harmony products that do not come with a Wi‑Fi enabled Harmony Hub cannot integrate with IFTTT.

For assistance with connecting your Harmony device to IFTTT, please visit Harmony’s support page.

Try rebooting your device by following the instructions provided here if:

  • Your Harmony device stops sending commands.

  • The Harmony app is unable to discover the hub.

If you continue to experience difficulty, we suggest reaching out to Harmony directly.


How do I keep the '@' symbol from disappearing in Twitter Applets?

To prevent spam and abuse, Twitter’s terms of service does not allow the use of the @ symbol.


How many SMS messages can I receive each month?

The SMS service has a monthly message limit of 100 SMS messages per calendar month for users in U.S and Canada, and 10 SMS per month for users outside North America.

You will receive an email alert when you are close to reaching your monthly SMS limit. When the monthly limit has been reached, your personal Applets that send SMS will be paused. They will resume again on the first day of the next calendar month. To avoid the monthly message limit, you can switch Applets that use SMS to Notifications.


I’m having trouble with my Maker Applets

The Maker service is a DIY service. Because the projects made with Maker are so unique, we’re unable to offer technical support for Maker Applets. If you're having trouble we recommend that you join Hackster.io. Hackster.io is a large, engaged community where users can get help with their projects and connect with others.
