IFTTT update: Window shades, finance tools, home security, & more — new on IFTTT



Summer has been sizzling at IFTTT HQ, but we aren’t just talking about 🌭 and 🏖. In between tanning sessions, we’ve been working with exceptional companies and products to bring you new services and Applets that keep you connected to all your favorite tech. So, take a look at the latest and let us know what you think.
 

So bright you gotta wear shades

Both Automate Shades and Connector Applets give you better control over the internet connected shades in your home, so you can lower them to block out the heat of the day or raise them to enjoy the sunset, all without leaving the comfort of your couch. 

Working hard for the money

Whether you’re saving up for a last-minute beach vacation or something a bit closer to home, check out ING Australia and Monzo’s new tools to help you meet your finance goals.

There’s no place like home

So let’s keep it safe and secure while you’re out of town! M2M Services and LifeShield Applets provide peace of mind while you’re away, so you can focus on the important things. Like getting more umbrella drinks.

For some of us, there’s nothing quite like sleeping in your own bed after a big adventure. For others? Adjusting to life after vacation can be a bit of a bummer 😑.  Either way, we have you covered. Hive View’s indoor video monitoring kept you up-to-date on the hijinks your pets (or teenagers!) got up to while you were away, so there should be no big surprises. And new Applets from Sengled, MicroBot Push, MicroBot Sense, VeSync, and MobiLinc will help you get your home’s temperature, lighting, music, and more dialed in so reentry is as painless as possible.

Keep in touch

That’s a wrap for now! Let us know what you think of these new tools. Or, if you’d like to be notified ASAP whenever something new is published, use the Applets below to receive notifications.

IFTTT update: IFTTT + Wyze Cam = connected home security for all



Using smart cameras for home security is a popular topic here at IFTTT, but we realize that outfitting a whole house with cameras can be an expensive prospect. This is why Wyze’s new integration on IFTTT is so exciting.

This WiFi-enabled camera is a total steal. It only costs $20. $30 if you want the fancy new version with panning functionality. It shoots 1080p HD, and features night vision, two-way audio, and free 14-day cloud storage for your alert videos. Best of all? It has built-in smoke and CO detection, which is a first for connected cameras on IFTTT.  

Once you have your Wyze cameras in place, we’ll help you arm and disarm motion sensing, manage your alerts and saved videos, and more. So, let’s make sure you’re capturing video where you want it, when you want it, whether you’re using Wyze for security or creating a cool time-lapse video of your construction project!
 

Motion detection

Some people stick to the same schedule most days: leave for work at 8AM, get home at 6PM, in bed no later than 10:34PM every night. Others have a more, shall we say, fluid sense of time and space. Whether you run a tight ship or prefer flying by the seat of your pants, you can now automate when Wyze starts looking for movement in your home.

Notifications or nah?

If you have a new kitten or puppy at home, you might want to know every time it ventures into the kitchen. Who knows when the cuteness (or destruction) is going to strike, right? But at the same time you might not want to get a text every time your teenager is in there looking for a snack. These Applets control when and how you get notifications, so you stay connected without getting overwhelmed.

Keep your home safe

From alerting the fire department when the smoke detector goes off to saving regularly-scheduled videos for later review, you can keep an eye on your home from afar with minimal effort.

This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Wyze and IFTTT, so we’re excited to see how you put us to work!  Watch this space for more Applets as they are published, and if you’re ready to create your own, get started here.

IFTTT update: Take control of your spending and saving with Monzo



What if you could demand more from your bank? More flexibility. More automation options. More collaboration. In short, what if your financial institution had a better connection to the rest of your life?

Enter Monzo. Monzo is building the bank of the future for UK customers. With integrated money management tools, customizable saving options, no foreign transaction fees and other exciting innovations, Monzo empowers their users to make smart decisions about their spending every day.

Monzo recently integrated with IFTTT to help you meet your goals, financial or otherwise. In fact, Monzo is the first financial service on IFTTT to allow access to your credit card transactions, purchases, transaction attachments, and more — which opens up options for Applets that hadn’t been previously possible. And we are so excited to see how the Monzo community puts IFTTT to work!

Automate savings

Monzo makes saving money for specific goals easy — whether it’s starting a rainy day fund or saving up for your next tropical vacation. Instead of creating a separate account for your travel fund, you can simply create a pot. Monzo separates this bucket of money from your available balance, so you aren’t as tempted to spend it on something else. Now, with IFTTT, you can painlessly save money every time you use your card or even participate in savings challenges to help you get in the habit of saving every day.

Take control of your budget

Even if you don’t buy any big-ticket items, lunches out, quick snacks and small impulse buys add up quickly — and can often derail your long-term financial goals. Luckily, Monzo’s Applets have you covered. Giving yourself a daily allowance can help curb that impulsive spending, and reviewing  your transaction trends once a week lets you identify patterns and adjust as needed.

Easy record keeping

Keeping track of reimbursable expenses can be such a headache. Stop digging crumpled receipts out of your luggage after business trips. Just snap a quick photo, and Monzo will take care of the rest.

Stay healthy

Some of the most exciting Applets for Monzo are designed to connect your financial habits with your other goals. You can reward yourself for going to the gym, remind yourself to drink more 🚰 and less ☕ , or even sass yourself for going out to eat too frequently!

These are just a few ways you can meet your financial and personal goals using Monzo and IFTTT. You can check out more Monzo Applets, or have a peek at all the creative ideas coming out of the Monzo community.
