IFTTT: If This Then That
Make your home more connected: get notifications, integrate services and more
What is IFTTT?
The platform's name stands for "If This Then That", which literally means "If this happens, then do that". IFTTT is a platform that, by connecting different external services, allows us to automate our daily actions, from the easiest to the most complicated. It allows you to create Applets, which means combinations of events, where you can choose both triggers, i.e. what triggers the automation, and actions, i.e. the action that will be triggered. Basically, IFTTT helps apps and devices to work in synergy.
What can you do with IFTTT?
Each user can choose to create custom combinations or use an applet available within the IFTTT library. This is what makes IFTTT such an open and potentially infinite ecosystem. In fact, if you don't find the applet that meets your needs within the library of applets already created by other users, you can create more and allow others to use them if they have the same need.
How does IFTTT work?
It could be used either through the website or as an app. In both cases the interface is very simple and intuitive. As mentioned previously, it is possible to use an applet already created by others in the library, or to create one from the beginning. First case: once the applet to be used has been identified, just click "Turn on" and log in with your account to the two services involved. Second scenario: creating an applet from scratch. Go to the "My Applets" section, click on "New Applet" if you are on the desktop, and on "+" if you are in the app. The first thing to define is the trigger and therefore the "This".
Choose the service you want to use as a trigger and then the specific action that will trigger your automation. Then choose the "That" that is the event you want to activate. Also in this case, choose the service and action you need from those provided by IFTTT. Once everything is set up, the applet will appear in your personal list.
