IFTTT Aggregated Reviews
Listen to the advice on the RSS feed. I have IFTTT setup using the Reddit support and I burst in on mechmarket threads selling FC660Cs consistently an hour late and a buck short.
An alternative to IFTTT could be Twitter. This subreddit rss is hooked on a Twitter account. If you have Twitter, you can set your Twitter client to send push notifications on every single tweet from that account.
Unfortunately IFTTT is too slow for any of the actually good deals that get posted here. It’s easily over 4 hours behind on emails and notifications consistently
WiFi connecting direct to IFTTT. Interesting concept. Might be great for beginners or small scale projects, but unworkable for a system with any scale (or, for that matter, lights).
IFTTT? Ugh. No thanks. I’d like my lights to turn on now, not 3-whenever minutes from now.
I would rather have the improved security and privacy with the changes being made by Google/Nest than worry about the loss of IFTTT support – I am sure they will offer some limited integration options with the Assistant API model that Google is pushing.
I bought a Nest Protect because I have a specific use case that needed the IFTTT integration. There’s nothing else available (that I know of) that is suitable.
Understand if there’s a technical limitation preventing third-party dev/access, but this just comes across as forcing people to use Google’s ecosystem.
Again, fuck google.
I don’t think I use ifttt for anything. Like I think I did it for lights and some small things at one point. But with nest protect and the indoor camera, I don’t really use ifttt much. My use has been turn on/off bedroom/living room lights, what’s the forecast, what’s traffic like, subway status, etc. I’m guessing this impacts those who mostly rely on ifttt for lots of third party devices. I think that sucks but also think, compared to users overall, those people are in the minority.
Just got an email from IFTTT saying nest support ends August 31st
IFTTT won’t work with the Nest API. IFTTT currently works with Google Assistant, so ultimately it will only change which service IFTTT communicates with and the process will still be the same.

As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
We love Wordpress and recently shipped two plugins into open beta for commercial sale.
v0.1.2.2 King The Monk - wordpress plugin to virally grow your email list
