“If this then that.” That’s the principle behind IFTTT. What it means is you can set up actions to react to things happening around you. So, for example, if it starts to rain outside, IFTTT can send you an email. If your favorite sports team scores, IFTTT can flash your Wemo controlled lights (more on that here). Or if you enter a specific location, IFTTT can automatically send your spouse a text telling them you’ve almost arrived. And that’s just scratching the surfaceof what IFTTT can do.
