    Notification on leak detect

    In my Apex, I will get an email when leak detect is ON.

    Is there a way for Apex to send HTTP get or post to a web on leak detect? On the website, I want to activate a video camera.

    Thanks.

    No, the Apex cannot send out anything but email.
    I'm not a Neptune support rep. Please do not send me PMs with technical questions or requesting assistance - use the forums for Apex help. PM me ONLY if the matter is of a private or personal nature. Thanks.

    I can't recall the thread, but I vaguely remember someone in the past using a received email notification to trigger something in their website using some html code I didn't understand. If you can find it it might give you some ideas.

    You can use IFTTT to trigger a response to an email from Fusion

    Is it like Fusion sends email to IFTTT, and IFTTT sends HTTP POST to my web site?

    This is from 2 minutes of research so I may be wrong, but it looks like this is the basic process.

    Fusion sends email to a gmail account. An IFTTT chain is set up that discovers an email was received from fusion based on its email address. Then the IFTTT sends an HTTP post to your website. As far as the actual details, never done it so can't help you any more than that.

    You might be an engineer if...You have no life and can prove it mathematically.

    Basically it works this way:
    1) Fusion sends notification to my hotmail
    2) I create a rule in hotmail that if the email contains certain keywords (i.e. Leak Detect), it will forward to trigger@applet.ifttt.com.
    3) At IFTTT, I create an email applet then initiate "Maker Webhooks"
    4) In the maker webhooks, I specify the URL, Method (POST), Content Type (application/x-www-form-urlencoded), and optional body. The URL is my own web site where I am responsible to activate my cameras based on certain keywords in the body.

    It is working. See my screenshots.ApexFusionCapture.PNG
