IFTTT and Wink smart home Integration



alfred in ifttt would be amazing!!!


Any update on the progress of IFTTT integration?


Should we be concerned about the lack of activity in the forums?


Oh, @Thom_Thomas

We are always reachable here, although we have been busy with the new update recently. After the release, I’ll spend more time at Alfred Center. I promise


I’m burning up my batteries so I hooked Alfred cameras to SmartThings outlet and when battery level reaches 15% I turn the outlet on using IFTTT. I would like to shut the outlet off 20min after fully charged based on Alfred’s input. Right now the outlet is set to a 3hr timer. Plus, being able to turn the lights/siren on/off based on motion would be a fantastic!


I am also interested in IFTTT integration so I can use Alfred in conjunction with other security devices/ security settings on my Smartthings hub. I would be interested in using the motion detection, enabling/ disabling notifications, and potentially sending a picture or video.

Regarding Smartmode, I had to turn it off due to the number of notifications. If Alfred integrates with IFTTT, we could help write rules that fit our routines to enable/ disable (ie: geofencing, time of day, receipt of a specific email or txt…it’s a long list)


I second this. I’ll be using in conjunction with other security devices and having this integration would make adoption of Alfred more appealing.


I’d like to 100th suggested for IFTTT and something like Amazon Alexa or Wink… It would be awesome to aggment the on network detection with voice commands. While I’m sleeping I’d like motion but will still be on the same network. It could be used for so much more, Alexa record clip… now I’ve got a voice based video recording. Alexa is anyone viewing my cameras? Alexa what are the status of my cameras? We all know that using our phones as something other than phones was the next step and the next one from there is voice / home automation integration. With IFTTT, motion detected, play music, turn on lights. Pet monitoring, motion detected, IFTTT feed dog. Can go on and on.


With the maker channel an adition to IFTTT then devices like Kankuns and network switches are really in their own as movement can be use from the phone to trigger other things like lights with an IFTTT tie in, still would also be nice to have a separate network trigger from Alfred for Home integration like to add a menu function to allow users on the camera side to trigger a network command on a set port. This would the allow those that work with Open Source home automation systems like OpenHab to be able to pull the cameras motion command to trigger other functions on a unique basis.

And as one muted before something like a bluetooth switch trigger would allow Alfred to be used by elderly relatives who can use it for piece of mind if they fall, press bluetooth switch on person and camera switches on and alert sent.


Оk. Intresting )(())))))))))))))


Hey all.
I haven’t read all the posts but will there be a ifttt integration?? I’d love to get this for checking my 3d printer :slight_smile:
A personalized mail would be enough. Ifttt can handle them and trigger actions.
Then a detection that is configureable would also make sense


Hi @3dprntr,

Thank you for reaching out!

We are looking into IFTTT, but I can’t promise when that will be a reality just yet! We do have users setting up Alfred to check out their 3D printers tho. Do you think you might be able to do that while you wait for the feature?


Reading this thread that started last year Jan 2016 IFTTT is an important addition.
Triggers to activate night vision, camera light or motion detection basic features. We who are trying to adopt Alfred for home security or general keeping an eye on stuff, this feature is fairly important and puts Alfred into mainstream home automation space.
Giving us the ability to reuse old cell phone and automating it reliably you can also put out a FAQ to promote this feature once ready, I am sure it will take off once people have a clear one pager that tells them how to use IFTTT with Alfred to automate.
I hope you can promise and commit to cover IFTTT use cases. FYI when I tell my friend and colleagues enthusiasts about Alfred the first question was does it support IFTTT.


Another user interested in the potential of having Alfred work with IFTTT or smart home devices. This would be absolutely amazing in bring Alfred’s home security cameras functionality into a home automation suite.


I’ve been waiting hopefully 16 months ): ¿any news?


Hey @meny.mothafu,

Thanks for checking in with Alfred!

We are looking into integrating Alfred with Google Home/Amazon Echo. It’ll take a while but hopefully it’ll be done soon!

Will keep you posted!


Hello! Also asking to how this is developing. Anxious for IFTTT ingratiation. Seeing this started in January 16. Almost 2 years ago. Where is this on the road map? Is it still on the road map?


Hi @rmcsonic,

Thank you for reaching out!

Great timing: Alfred will soon support Google Assistant (and possibly other voice assistants in the future).

Do you think you might find this helpful? We’d love you to try it when the feature becomes available and keep us posted!


I’m not sure if it would be helpful or not. I guess it depends on the supported functions. I’m not sure it really solves the IFTTT support thing. The only input you can do right now with Google assistant via IFTTT is a text phrase. So that doesn’t do much on that front. The point of the IFTTT functions would be to base a recipe action directly on something like a motion detection, connectivity loss of a cam, audio detection, etc to trigger something like an email, or a light to come on, or a siren to sound. Or vise versa where something would trigger a cam function like when a third-party IR motion detector picks up movement, start a record on the cam, or when a door sensor is tripped - start up motion detection on the cam.

Simply being able to tell my google assistant to “Turn on motion detection on Stairway Cam” is convenient, but I don’t think it is what a lot of us on this tread were hoping for.


Any update on IFTTT integration? The main draw of integration with IFTTT specifically is the automation it would allow. Google Assistant and Alexa support is a great base functionality for Alfred as it allows a convenient way to turn off and on motion detection via voice or text but it is still done manually, and so I think misses the point of the IFTTT request two years ago. The thing about a security system type of setup is that many people would like to just set and forget and only have interaction with the system when it detects activity that shouldn’t be happening.
