Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Using IFTTT for automation, part of Android App Development: Internet of Things.
- Let's talk about using IFTTT for automation.…IFTTT stands for, "If This Then That."…It's a set of pre-canned recipes for common data services.…So if your device does something,…if you want to know when your device…puts something in a dropbox that you want to get an email,…IFTTT is a great back-end service…in which you can create those kind of custom recipes.…You can customize this for unique devices.…For example, the tire pressure from your car…might go into a dropbox folder,…and send you an email summary once a week,…whereas the temperature variations in your refrigerator…might get aggregated monthly,…and might be sent into a spreadsheet someplace in the Cloud.…
And you could also have it be…real-time response to real-world events.…Let's say that something happens at home.…Your window gets opened when you're not expecting it.…You can have it send you a text message right now.…Let's go take a look at IFTTT.com.…So IFTTT works on something they call "Recipes."…Let's take a look at the kind of recipes you can do.…
