Web Hooks are an easy way to connect your Kitsi Creator into the Internet of Things through third party website such as IFTTT. Web Hooks can only be utilised as Inputs to trigger logic from third party apps or websites.
If you want to trigger Actions into the web check out the HTTP or IFTTT Virtual Blocks instead.
Through the Web Hook virtual block, you can create a URL link that triggers an event in your Logic Maker each time the page is loaded. What's special about this is that you can apply this link to an endlessly growing list of apps or devices connected to the Internet of Things. This means you can connect any device that's connected to the internet at home to trigger a set of logic and actions within your Creator.
Setting up the Web Hook Block
First things first, insert the Web Hook Block from the Quick Menu.
This will insert the Web Hook Block into your Workspace. Click on the Properties Icon.
The Properties Panel will open up on the right hand side. You can create new events by clicking on the plus icon. This will create an NewEvent, which you can rename. Once you rename the event, the Event URL will change.
Once you have renamed your event, You can copy the Event URL by clicking on the copy icon next to the name of the event. You can use this Event URL with any device or service which supports web-hooks.
Warning: Make sure to copy the Web Hook URL AFTER you have renamed it.
Now go back into your Logic Maker, and insert an INPUT and COUNTER GATE. Select your web-hook you just created.
Go into your Browser, and paste the link from before. Now every time you open the link, your logic will be triggered.
You could access this link from any device, such as your phone or laptop to trigger an action. This gives you the power to trigger your logic from anywhere with an internet access.
