TiVo will soon work with IFTTT, Google Assistant, and Alexa

Friday, January 12th, 2018

Given the thousands of press releases coming out of CES, we almost missed the news that your TiVo DVR/Set-top box will soon integrate in your smart home setup, almost regardless of which platform you've decided to delve into.

Over the next few months, TiVo will have an IFTTT channel with multiple applets to let you automate your TV watching based on other happenings around your house, such as turn on ESPN when you get home, pause when the doorbell rings, and so on.

IFTTT adds 9 new channels for Hive plugs, tracMO, Luxafor, Orion, and more

Tuesday, December 19th, 2017

I always have fun seeing which services are being added to IFTTT: it leads me to discover new products I'd never heard about, it makes me imagine scenarios for automations that I wouldn't have considered previously, and it reminds me of how much of our lives nowadays can be relegated to a server somewhere.

Over the past couple of weeks, 9 new channels have been added to IFTTT. I'd only heard of Hive before, but you may find something here that you've been anxiously waiting for and that's super popular in your environment.

Nuki smart lock review: A simple to use, reliable, and very smart solution for European-style locks

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

For the past year or so, I've been looking at smart locks and wanting one yet not able to fully commit to anything. Living in Lebanon means our doors don't have the American-style deadbolts, but what is known as the Euro Style/Profile Double Cylinder - a lock that is quite prominent across France, Germany, the UK, and other countries. So August, Yale, Schlage, Kwikset, and plenty of brands geared toward the US market were mostly out of the question unless I wanted to take a risk and get something that doesn't fit at all with my apartment's door.

IFTTT is one of the best ways to connect your multiple smart services and appliances and make them work together. Sure, there are hubs and services that might offer to bridge the gaps between different IoT companies, but IFTTT really covers the entire gamut, and since it supports Google Assistant, that makes it easier to issue voice commands at your entire house.

Today's expansion of IFTTT brings us several new channels that can be connected to either your Google Assistant or your other devices.

Use this IFTTT applet to log your Pixel 2 Now Playing history to a Google Spreadsheet

Tuesday, November 14th, 2017

The Pixel 2 and 2 XL have a nifty always listening music ID feature. You can simply look at your phone and see a "Now Playing" notification that tells you if the phone has heard a popular song. Google doesn't keep a log of the songs you encounter, but you can do that yourself with IFTTT.

IFTTT user hypnopompia created an applet you can add to your IFTTT account right now. It uses the Android notification service to watch for the Now Listening notification, then it logs the content of that notification to a spreadsheet in Google Drive.

Wednesday, November 8th, 2017

Some changes are rolling out to IFTTT right now that could change the way you use it. There are several new services, but that happens all the time. What's notable is IFTTT has decided to split Google Drive up into its constituent elements, so you may notice some changes to your applets.

For those who are not aware, IFTTT is a simple but powerful automation platform that connects to scores of services and products.

IFTTT adds support for Remember The Milk, Asana, and WeatherFlow

Sunday, October 8th, 2017

IFTTT, the popular web-based automation platform, recently added support for three new services. The new additions to the service are Remember The Milk, Asana, and WeatherFlow smart weather stations. I guess that means you can set lightning strikes recorded by your WeatherFlow weather station to trigger Asana tasks for your employees which, upon completion, add a Remember The Milk reminder to follow up on the lightning strike tomorrow. Ah, the future. 

Remember The Milk is a to-do list app, and it's quite well liked, with over a million downloads on Google Play.

IFTTT adds applets for Facebook Messenger

Friday, September 15th, 2017

IFTTT is a powerful automation tool that can link together many of the popular services we all use every day. The possibilities are almost endless with a bit of imagination. The platform has had a bunch of Facebook applets for some time, but the same couldn't be said for Facebook Messenger, until now.

There's certainly an audience out there for Messenger related applets, as this Reddit post proves. A Facebook Messenger page on the IFTTT site has now been put together that offers exactly that.

IFTTT adds a channel for TP-Link Kasa smart plugs, switches, and bulbs

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

IFTTT is continuing its crusade to bridge your different online services and smart home gadgets and appliances together, with the latest addition being TP-Link's Kasa series of smart bulbs, switches, and plugs (which, I might add, are already Google Home-compatible).

The Kasa channel is still marked as "beta" on IFTTT, but there are already plenty of ideas for integrations with motion detectors, smart cams, your phone's location, and so on. For now, the IFTTT channel only offers actions for TP-Link, like turning a Kasa device on, off, toggling its state, changing the color or brightness or color temperature of a bulb, and setting a scene.

IFTTT adds channels for MyQ garage door opener, Neato robot vacuums, and WD’s new My Cloud Home NAS

Thursday, August 31st, 2017

IFTTT is a godsend solution for people who use different services and platforms and wish they could make them work better together. The idea of tying triggers from one device to actions on another is especially practical in the smart home, and even more so when you can use Google Home to control all those devices through IFTTT even if they don't have direct Assistant integration - yet.

With that said, IFTTT has just added support for 3 new products through new channels.
