IFTTT gives you creative control over popular applications, devices, and services that you use and love. With the abode channel, you can interact and control other channels on IFTTT to seamlessly integrate abode device statuses, alarm modes, and much more to other connected channels.
How It Works
IFTTT operates by connecting channels together with custom recipes that you define. Once you have an IFTTT account and an abode account, you can authorize the abode IFTTT channel to perform certain actions based on events that occur in your home. For example, if an alarm activates, you can instruct IFTTT to post to Facebook, send you a notification, or turn on your Hue Lightbulbs. It's totally up to you and can be setup with an easy point and click interface.
