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.
