One of the most requested features we get is to connect to the popular service IFTTT. For a long time we have tried to convince IFTTT to connect their awsome service with us. They never replied so we asked you, our users, to also ask them. Our plan was that when enough people requesting Telldus support they might listen. And they did!
We are very pleased to announce that Telldus is getting a channel in IFTTT!
What is IFTTT? IFTTT is a service that allows many different services to communicate with each other. That means Telldus products will be able to control any other service also connected with IFTTT. At the moment I am writing this IFTTT has support for over 300 channels. So at once you can combine Telldus products with Philips Hue, SmartThings, Netatmo, Nest, and more!
What can I do? You can do a lot. But here is some examples to get your imagination going:
- When an astronaut enters space, ring my bell.
- When I plug in my phone to the charger at night, turn off all lights in the house.
- Log my sensor data to a Google spreadsheet.
- When someone rings on my doorbell, tweet about it.
- When I leave home, lock my door.
Since we are still developing this channel we are not yet ready to launch it yet. But we would really like to have some testers. We have reserved 50 spots in a [[beta:5 beta test]] for this. Since there is limited number of spots in this test they will be reserved for Pro users.
