Yes, it is an actual thing – technology at your beckoning call, performing everyday tasks at your voice command.
Even our all-new iKettle – 3rd Generation (released last month) now gives you the power to boil by simply speaking!
This is possible with third-party integration using IFTTT (If This Then That) applets which then allow you to link to smart devices like Amazon Echo.
For all, you geeks out there at the forefront, and those of you who are still learning, we’ve got a quick setup of how to get your iKettle working with the rest of your smart home using IFTTT.
Step 1: Download and open the Smarter app, go across to ‘Network settings’ and locate the ‘Works with IFTTT’ option.
Step 2: Log into your IFTTT account, or set one up if you haven’t done so already.
Step 3: Go back into network settings, select ‘Works with IFTTT’ then select connect.
Step 4: Enter your Smarter account details and you’re connected!
