IFTTT.com is probably the most powerful online digital automation platform. The principle of working with this service is elementary. IFTTT means If This Then That – you must specify a condition (trigger) and an action that is performed under this condition. In practice, this makes it possible to link numerous services and products that are usually completely incompatible. Now you can find 2Smart Cloud in the IFTTT services catalog, which means that devices running our platform can be easily linked with other services. Below we will show you how to use IFTTT automation features with 2Smart Cloud devices.
Automation scenarios in IFTTT are called applets. In applets, the user specifies the trigger and the action performed when the trigger fires. You can read more about working with IFTTT in the platform’s help.
Activation of the selected sensor of the 2Smart Cloud device can be both a trigger and an action in the IFTTT applet. You can choose one of three sensor trigger conditions:
It doesn’t matter if you select the 2Smart Cloud device’s sensor as a trigger or action. The applet configuration flow will be the same. Both options will be considered below.
But before moving on to the instructions, take a look at the ready-made 2Smart Cloud applets in IFTTT. We may have already set up the necessary automation for you.
Above, we showed you how to set up IFTTT applets on the desktop version of the service. You can also install the IFTTT mobile application, where the same functionality is available, and configure applets using it.
We recommend studying the experience of IFTTT users on the network. You can even find examples of setting up flexible home automation using this platform.
Ready-made 2Smart Cloud applets already now allow you to link devices from different developers. For example, you can set the light in the hallway to turn on when the electric door lock is opened using the Propuskator controller. We also have applets that allow you to control any device using an Aqara wireless switch or brightness sensor.
Also, take a look at the Webhooks service of the IFTTT platform. With it, you can often set up integration with other services not represented in the IFTTT catalog.
The free IFTTT plan allows you to create five simple applets with one trigger and one action. You can access more applets if you upgrade your account to IFTTT Pro or Pro+. In addition, you will be able to set up multi-action applets with more complex automation.
