MeshTek is excited to announce the integration of its smart lighting devices with IFTTT (If This Then That), a free web-based service that allows users to create custom automation routines. This integration empowers MeshTek users to control their lighting devices from the IFTTT app and automate lighting functions based on various triggers. In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of this integration, how installers can help users with the integration, important features of the IFTTT app for controlling MeshTek lighting, and the different controls that users can do with the IFTTT app for MeshTek lighting.
Benefits of IFTTT Integration
With the IFTTT integration of MeshTek lighting devices, users can control their lighting from anywhere, at any time, without even touching their devices. They can select multiple actions in the IFTTT app that automate lighting functions based on various triggers, such as time of day, location, or weather. For example, a user could create a “that” condition that turns on their MeshTek lights when they arrive home after sunset or turns off their lights when they leave home. This integration allows users to manage their lighting without opening the MeshTek app or even being in the same room as their lighting devices. The IFTTT integration also allows users to give commands through their Alexa devices.
How Installers Can Help Users with IFTTT Integration
Installers can educate users on how to connect their MeshTek lighting to the IFTTT app and create custom actions based on pre-defined triggers. They can guide users on how to use different triggers, actions, and conditions available in IFTTT and how to troubleshoot common issues. Installers can also help users understand the benefits of automation and how it can improve their daily routines and overall quality of life.
