Automate Your Home Automation In 10 Minutes Using Ifttt

Introduction

Automating your home is a great way to save money, be more efficient and generally just make life easier. But automating your home can be overwhelming for some people. There are so many different devices out there that it’s hard to know which ones work together and what the best options are for you. Here are 10 simple recipes that will get you started automating your home in no time!

IFTTT is a free web-based service that allows users to create chains of simple conditional statements, called “recipes”, which are triggered by changes to other web services.

IFTTT stands for “If This Then That,” and it’s a web-based service that allows users to create chains of simple conditional statements, called “recipes”, which are triggered by changes to other web services.

The best part about IFTTT is the variety of channels it has–you can use it to automate everything from your thermostat and lights, to social media accounts and email inboxes.

The concept behind IFTTT (If This Then That) is simple and can be applied to just about any aspect of your life that you want to automate.

IFTTT is a free web-based service that allows users to create chains of simple conditional statements, called “recipes”, which are triggered by changes to other web services. For example, if you have an email account with Gmail and an iOS device, you can use IFTTT to have all new photos sent from the phone automatically uploaded to Google Photos. Similarly, if it rains in your area on any given day during the weekdays (Monday through Friday), then turn on your porch light using Philips Hue lights.

IFTTT’s slogan is “Put the Internet to work for you.”

The only requirements for using IFTTT is that you have an internet connection and a free account on their website or app.

This is the first recipe that I created and used to automate my lights when I first started using If This Then That (IFTTT). It allows me to turn on my lights with a voice command through Amazon Echo or Google Home devices like Google Home Mini or Amazon Echo Dot 2nd Generation by simply saying “Alexa turn on/off all lights”.

You can also use this same recipe by adding it directly into Siri Shortcuts on an iPhone running iOS 12+, which gives users access to even more features than ever before!

Your House Is Your Smart Device – Connect everything from lights, thermostats and speakers so that they work together seamlessly.

  • Use the IFTTT app or website to connect your devices
  • Use a smart home hub like Samsung SmartThings or Wink to connect all your devices, lights and speakers together so that they work seamlessly.
  • Set up a smart thermostat that can adjust the temperature automatically based on when you leave or arrive home.

The following 10 recipes will make it easy for anyone to begin automating their home in just 10 minutes.

  • If you have a lamp on your desk, and you’re not within Bluetooth range of it, turn off the lamp. The recipe will run when you leave your office or room with your phone or laptop and come back again (assuming that the device has been connected to Wi-Fi).
  • If I leave my apartment at 8:00 am every weekday morning, change my thermostat to 68 degrees Fahrenheit before I leave so that it’s comfortable when I get home after work at 6 pm. The recipe runs only when necessary–in this case when someone leaves their apartment during these hours of operation (8 am – 6 pm).
