Since launching with ultimate automation platform service IFTTT (If This Then That), Smarter users have been able to add their own automation to their Smarter products. Using IFTTT functionalities, users are able to create more than 20 applets for their Smarter products to bring their favourite services together. Here we wanted to share how you can get your favourite Smarter products connected to IFTTT!
IFTTT is a free web-based service that connects your favourite apps and devices such as Facebook, Gmail, Instagram and Alexa into applets. Applets are specific things that can happen when connecting services. For example with a Gmail account, you can receive emails when your iKettle is boiled or if your fridge temperature is too high, then send a notification from the IFTTT app! Clever right?
If you own a Smarter iKettle and Coffee Machine, there are many automations you can add using IFTTT. You simply add a service and set up actions for when your iKettle has boiled or when your coffee machine has finished keeping warm!
You can even set up actions to brew your coffee or boil your kettle, through your settings by adding triggers of your choice. For example, when you come home (action), your kettle will automatically start boiling, then your Hue lights will blink when your kettle has finished boiling (trigger).
Now with IFTTT, you can also trigger events from your FridgeCam! When your FridgeCam has low battery, your fridge door has been left open or the temperature of your fridge is too low, it can trigger an event, prompting you to look into it. How smart is that? Try creating an applet for your FridgeCam, such as; “when an item is added to my Smarter shopping list, add it to my Tesco shopping basket.”
There are many different applets you can create to smarten up your lifestyle and to bring your favourite smart products together. Do more with your Smarter products and IFTTT and have fun!
