Because everyone is unique: Your own applications with IFTTT and Home Connect

Home Connect app together with an IFTTT recipe

Thanks to IFTTT (If This Then That), you can connect a large number of services and appliances that you use on a daily basis – such as Home Connect appliances. These connections and/or application scenarios, or quite simply "recipes", are created by a simple instruction: If This Then That. "This" is the trigger and "that" is an action which is triggered as a result. If, for example, the washing machine has finished, my Philips Hue light should flash. Thus IFTTT and Home Connect enable countless personal applications to be created which are tailored precisely to your needs.

There are already over 400 possibilities

Your creativity will know no bounds

The list of predefined "recipes" (automated rules or application scenarios) that you can create with IFTTT already includes over 400 application scenarios. These "recipes" are largely created by other users. Your creativity will also know no bounds – you can create your own "recipes" and share them with other users. To inspire you in terms of what Home Connect and IFTTT is already capable of, we have put together a few examples below with which you can organise your daily routine to make it stylish, imaginative and, above all, convenient.

IFTTT and Home Connect: Every link is a hit

Everything tastes better with music

Do you find the noise your kitchen timer makes a little monotonous after you've heard it over and over again? Then you can have your favorite music played instead when your food is ready. Simply create a corresponding application with IFTTT, your Home Connect oven and your music playback device (e.g. smartphone or wireless speaker ) and you can have your latest meal accompanied by the latest hits.

It's not just the laundry that is radiant after washing

Naturally, you will also be notified via the Home Connect app when your washing machine or dryer is finished. You can also count on a solution in conjunction with IFTTT and Philips Hue: Simply set your Philips Hue light to flash as soon as the machine has finished. And impress your friends and family alike with this enlightening idea.

For fans of statistics: How often has the fridge been opened?

That is admittedly a rather well-used "recipe" using which we can check your behavior. But maybe it's also a good monitoring device if you're on a diet: Connect your Home Connect fridge to IFTTT and Google Docs and you will receive evaluations on how often you have opened your fridge – per day, per week, per month or even per year.
