What is IFTTT?

Short for “IF This Then That”, IFTTT is a free web-based platform you can use to link smart appliances, apps and even websites to your Niko Home Control installation. In so doing, you can automate all kinds of actions via simple conditional (IF/THEN) statements called “applets”. Either create your own applets or simply link to any of the thousands already available via the IFTTT.com platform. You can use up to 35 different Niko Home Control triggers in your IFTTT applets.

What can you do with Niko Home Control?

By using Niko Home Control with IFTTT you can link and automate anything which is available on IFTTT, anything you can imagine.
