Turned on the preview channel for Lockitron in IFTTT and am eagerly awaiting testing it out this evening when I arrive home. I have my Automatic - http://www.automatic.com/ set up to trigger when I arrive at my home, to unlock the lockitron and send me a notification. If my ignition is turned on at my house, automatically lock the lockitron and send me a notification.
I believe it may fail unless its already awake - so if we can get the addition to the V2 API, to customize the wake/sleep schedule of the lockitron that would be ideal.
For me the ideal way this would work, is that I could set up a custom schedule with multiple entries. Each entry would include a start time to wake up, and an end time to go back to sleep. I would want to add 2, perhaps three discrete entries, for the weekdays and and additional set of entries of the weekends, and holidays, etc. The typical weekday schedule would have 3 windows, morning, midday and evening - where the device would wake up and stay awake till the specified time. This would allow the triggers for web hooks, and IFTTT integration to function properly - right now IFTT and webhooks are barely useable if at all because the devices are always asleep.
I am even willing to sacrifice battery life for the ability to have the WiFi on longer if required.
