iDevices adds support for IFTTT to its connected home products

Despite the Apple-centric name, iDevices makes a variety of affordable connected home products that are equally useful for the Android faithful. Today the company has added some additional value to their entire connected home lineup with IFTTT integration.

I’m guessing virtually all of you are already familiar with IFTTT, but just in case, If This Then That (IFTTT) is the service that enables many apps and devices to interact with one another via fairly easy to understand “recipes” to achieve tasks like turning your porch light on when you arrive at home or turning on your heat if the temperature outside drops below a certain point. You can build your own recipes or you can scroll through those created by others and often find exactly what you are looking for

iDevices already offers support for Siri, Alexa, and Google Assistant, so the addition of IFTTT makes this one of the most versatile lineups of smart home products available. iDevices covers the gamut of connected home products with indoor and outdoor plug and play power outlets, light switches, dimmers, wall outlets, light bulbs, and a thermostat.

Getting IFTTT up and running with iDevices just requires enabling IFTTT in the iDevices Connected app and then you can head over to the IFTTT app and get started creating some recipes of your own or browse some of the options on the iDevices IFTTT profile page.

Any IFTTT fans have some favorite recipes for connected home products that iDevices users can take advantage of now?
