microBees & IFTTT

What is IFTTT

IFTTT stands for IF THIS THEN THAT. It is an online platform that enables users to connect two channels to create interesting recipes. Recipes are made up of two key ingredients. A trigger and an action. When something happens with one service, a trigger goes off and an action takes place automatically on the other. If you gain a new connection on linkedin or get a mention on Twitter these will act as triggers to initiate an action. The action could be switching an adapter on or off.
