D-Link are adding IFTTT support to their smart home devices. This was something I pointed out was missing when I reviewed their IoT devices back in December, so its great to see D-Link are listening and adding value for those who already bought into their ecosystem.
By adding support for “If This Then That”, mydlink Connected Home users can now create recipes that link functions of D-Link devices and functions from devices of other manufacturers to enhance their lives. The D-Link channels now include support for D-Link’s Wi-Fi Smart Plug, Wi-Fi Siren and Motion Sensor.
D-Link ANZ MD Graeme Reardon said,
“Our implementation of IFTTT has been growing for some time with the goal of enabling users to integrate and expand their home automation system with other devices and services. With the integration of IFTTT into the mydlink Home ecosystem, users can easily enhance and expand control of their home using IFTTT recipes to trigger a variety of actions creating an automated home designed to fit their specific needs.
Integrating with IFTTT opens up a world of possibilities and provides users with unprecedented control over their mydlink Home experience. There’s also the added bonus and emphasis of ease of use built in from the ground up.”
With the Wi-Fi Smart Plug you can have connected events turn on or off the power to devices. It’s just as easy to schedule a fan to turn off when you leave for work, turn on a stereo every morning to start your day or set a schedule for the night light to turn off in the kids’ room.
The Wi-Fi Siren can scare away potential intruders and automate a home for awareness, deterrence and security. When paired with a Wi-Fi Motion Sensor it’s particularly straightforward to get alerted when movement is detected in a range of personalised ways. Maybe you have some Philips Hue lights that you turn red to alert the neighbours.
With an IFTTT recipe you can arm the siren when you leave your home, or alternatively sound the siren if motion is detected after a specified time.
Whether it’s turning on the lights in the bedroom for a bright welcome home, a siren sounding if the front door is opened in the middle of the night, or an alert to clean up the garbage bin, the mydlink Wi-Fi Motion Sensor with IFTTT support helps make a home easily and efficiently react to motion. D-Link’s Wi-Fi Motion Sensor sends push notifications to a smartphone or tablet when motion is detected, so users always know what’s happening while they are away.
To get started, just head over to https://ifttt.com/channels and connect the channel by sign into your mydlink account. Once activated, you’ll be able to use D-Link devices in your recipies.
