Advantages of integrating IFTTT services with your digital products

If you want to enhance customer experience and promote your products, consider integrating them with IFTTT. IFTTT is a platform that connects apps and devices, allowing for automated actions. We've integrated our IoT product DotHub with IFTTT, enabling users to connect it with smart home devices like Amazon Alexa and Google Home.

Understanding IFTTT: Simplifying Connectivity

IFTTT, or "IF This Then That," is a platform designed to connect apps and devices to perform specific actions. It operates on the premise of creating recipes, which are sets of instructions for automated actions. Each recipe consists of components: a trigger, an action, and optionally, a query.

For example, consider a recipe where saying a phrase activates a gate. In this scenario, the trigger is the phrase, the action is activating the gate, and the query might involve multiple events to trigger the action.

Choosing IFTTT

Integrating with IFTTT offers significant advantages over in-house builds. It reduces costs, saves time, and simplifies maintenance by allowing one integration to connect with multiple services and products. Additionally, it provides opportunities to build relationships with developer communities and gain insights into future product innovations.You've decided to connect your products with other services and products, but there is one more major decision that you have to make: choose the way of building integration. Many people choose in-house builds, but without having considered their disadvantages.

How to Integrate with IFTTT?

To integrate your products with IFTTT services, start by creating your service and submitting it for review. Once approved, create connections to enable actions, triggers, and queries. Finally, publish your connections to make them available for users and developers to integrate with your products.
