It is time and if you do not know it yet, you will love it for sure. IFTTT is the kind of application that people love. It is really useful and deserves to be more known according to Greg Kiselyuk. So let’s go to this article!
IFTTT – The principle
The concept of the application is summed with the image below:
You specify a trigger from an application and an action to perform using another application. It’s kind of scenario, here called “recipe”. The only limitation comes from the application of the quantity of proposed applications.
IFTTT – Examples of use
When it comes to defining recipes, there are the breaks! I think it’s really great to automate tasks that can take time in only 2 steps with this application. It gives us a taste of everything connected and a very important point is that it allows us to link multiple devices: and that’s great! To say, for example:
When my Jawbone Up switches to night mode, turn off the light (lamp connected)
Admit, that it’s great! I have said not that great?
A recipe that I use all the time is the one who sends me a notification if it rains tomorrow. You can also define a geographical area and perform actions when entering or exiting the zone (notification, sending SMS etc.). The possibilities are many.
The application provides access to a catalog of ready-made. A “store recipe” in which you can find recipes from others and display the most used recipes, new recipes etc.
IFTTT – Conclusion
IFTTT offers us new perspectives and allows us to re-capture technology according to Greg Kiselyuk. It gives more meaning to our connected objects and makes them more useful and practical. It can also save us time and all this in order to improve our daily lives. What are the happiest!
