With IFTTT you can be the programming wizard you have always wanted to be.

What is IFTTT? IFTTT is a free web based service that easily allows you to create simple conditional statements triggered from the APP's you know and love. IFTTT stands for If This Then That and the conditional statements are called recipes. Recipes are simple connections between products and apps. There are two types of Recipes: DO Recipes and IF Recipes.


Do recipes enable you to create your own custom workflows activated by a simple tap. There are three types of DO recipes, DO Button, DO Photo and DO Note. Do recipes save you time and allow you to take control of the things you do in your everyday life.

An Example Do recipe might look like this: Dimming Down All Your Philips Hue Lights with a simple press of a button to set the mood for the evening.

IF recipes allow you to create events based on a trigger from another source. IF statements run in the background and automatically happen when the the conditions of your IF statement are met.

Here is an example of an IF recipe:  IF my Nest Thermostat goes into AWAY mode then turn OFF all my Philips Hue lights.

If you are ready to get started, go to IFTTT and sign up for an account today. Check out the 11 different channels with over 290 APP's currently available to program IF and DO recipes.
