  1. IFTTT (an abbreviation of "If This Then That") is a free web-based service that allows users to create chains of simple conditional statements, called "recipes", which are triggered based on changes to other web services and products. IFTTT integration into Control4 allows Control4 to control any of the products or services integrated into IFTTT and have those products also control Control4. This expands the integration of Control4 to support numerous functions that it natively does not do. We have listed a few examples of what integration can bring to Control4 below and have also stepped through programming some of the ones we feel are useful to a lot of people. Note that this is a small list of things we liked. There are a lot of other things you can do currently (with lots more coming in future to IFTTT) so we suggest you check out the channels on the IFTTT website. We are keen to hear about what cool things you have done with the driver. Let us know via twitter, email or forum post. FAQ What can i use this driver for? These are some examples of what you can achieve with IFTTT integration to Control4 via the Chowmain IFTTT maker driver. Outbound Examples (Control4 > IFTTT) Control4 can send SMS’s via your Android phone (IF app must be downloaded to the phone) Control4 can call your phone number and say a message (for security alarms, smoke alarms and other emergencies). Control4 can save data about the events in your home in google docs or dropbox. Control4 can save data about the events in your home to IFTTT’s daily or weekly email digest. Control4 can send emails out without 4sight or 3rd party driver Control4 can send push notifications out without 4sight or 3rd party driver (using pushalot, pushbullet or pushover) Control4 can send Skype messages Control4 can send Google Glass notifications (with Message, Image URL and URL fields). Control4 can send notifications to your Android wear device (requires IF app installed). Control4 can send your BMW (Connected Drive Compatible) a message on your car’s front screen display (120 characters limited) Control4 can find lost items (needs tags) or phones (call your phone). Control4 can send your Tesla (EVE enabled) a message (with subject, message and message type fields) on your car’s dashboard Control4 can turn on or off your GE Smart Appliance and more. Control4 can tell your Android phone to turn on/off Bluetooth or wifi (might be useful when you’re leaving or coming back home). Tell the world via Facebook what your home is upto (might not be a good idea). When batteries are low on your Control4 sensors add a reminder to your IOS reminders app. Inbound Examples (IFTTT > Control4) Amazon Alexa (Amazon Echo, Tap, etc) can send commands to Control4 via voice recognition to do things like turn lights on, play music, house off and more. Assissant.ai can send commands to Control4 via voice recognition Control4 can read out stock prices or notify you when they raise or lower (requires Chowmain Advanced Announcements Driver) Control4 can pause your music and videos when you answer your phone (android only) Control4 can read out tweets when someone mentions you on twitter (requires Chowmain Advanced Announcements Driver) Control4 can detect if a specific person has entered or left a room/zone using beacons. iOS Location and Android Location (via the IF app) can tell Control4 when you are approaching or leaving home. Send a warning to Control4 when something has been picked up or moved (needs wireless tag) Your BMW (Connected Drive Compatible) can tell Control4 when it is entering or exiting an area. Your EVE enabled Tesla car can tell Control4 when it has arrived home, is leaving home or on the way home. Your Automatic, Zubie or Dash enabled car can tell Conrol4 when you have turned the car on or off within a certain area. Your GE, LG and Samsung Smart appliances can tell Control4 when it has been turned on, off, if for example an oven timer is done, if there is a leak in the dishwasher, if the filter eeds cleaning, if the dryer cycle has finished, if the fridge door has been left open for too long, Your Nest Protect smoke alarm can send Control4 smoke emergency, warning and carbon monoxide emergencies Your Netatmo Welcome can tell Control4 when a specific person, known person or even an unknown person has been seen or arrives home (facial recognition) Your Roost Smart Battery can tell Control4 (via the announcement agent) when its battery is low (Great for smoke alarms). Control Control4 via SMS or phone call to IFTTT. Have Control4 read out your meetings (including subject, body & location) on outlook 365 calendar or Google calendar 15 minutes before the meeting (requires Chowmain Advanced Announcements driver) If the temperature (via weather forecast/conditions) changes in your area tell Control4 to do something. Your Android phone can tell Control4 when it has connected or disconnected to/from a specific Wifi network. Change the colours of your RGB LED’s to your teams colour using the ESPN channel when the game starts. Any other cool things about this driver? This driver actually replaces alof of functionality that is native to Control4 but requires a subscription and also implements products and services that alot of other 3rd party paid drivers integrate. As such in certain cases its actually cheaper to utilise this one driver for integration over multiple services/products. Once the driver is installed all the programming can be done via Composer Home Edition. Perfect for Enthusiasts. How does it work? Control4 will send IFTTT triggers to IFTTT based on programming done by the Control4 dealer. IFTTT will send commands back to Control4 via a 3rd party service called pushover. When Control4 receives these commands the dealer needs to program Control4 actions to correspond to the command sent. Please read the installation PDF for specific details. How do I find out more information about the driver? Please see the links below for more information about the driver. Chowmain Website How do I buy the driver?

  2. So have been having an issue with the IFTTT driver lately, everything will be working like a champ and then its not. We'll go 3-5 days with no issues, then I've got to re-enter the PushOver credentials and IFTTT key to get everything up and running again... Thoughts?
  3. My initial impression is I pretty much have to do this for Chowmain's driver, thoughts? (That's ANOTHER recurring monthly cost) https://www.theverge.com/2020/9/10/21430265/ifttt-pro-subscriptions-free-controversy
  4. I recently upgraded to an EA3 from an HC250. Post upgrade I noticed my IFTTT Maker driver is not working. Per Composer, it states Trial Expired, Invalid Key. I suspect the original key does not transfer license on upgrading, meaning the original key is unique to the previous HC250 hardware. Wondering if there is a way to make this transfer or do I need to purchase a new license for the EA3. I no longer have the HC250 in my possession.
  5. Just managed to get a nice use case working with David's help using the Berto IFTTT driver. 1. Install C4 Berto drivers for Cloud & IFTTT https://github.com/davidmassot/Berto/tree/master/c4z Read Me - https://github.com/davidmassot/Berto/blob/master/src/Berto_Cloud/README.md Read Me - https://github.com/davidmassot/Berto/blob/master/src/Berto_IFTTT/README.md 2. On IFTTT mobile application add the Webhooks service and get the key (look under documentation) 3. On IFTTT create an Applet - "this" = Webhooks (Receive a web request) - "Event Name" = whatever name you want to give it and then create trigger - that = VoIP Calls (For those in the US, the action using Phone Call (US Only) should also work but unable to test as I am not in US) 4. Copy the Webhooks key into IFTTT key property on Berto IFTTT C4 driver. 5. Then use C4 Programming to call the Berto IFTTT as an action on the back of an event (key press, alarm invoked etc). Enter the IFTTT event name in the Berto IFTTT Event field. That's it for high priority alerts where notifications may not be enough. Limitations of this are: - IFTTT service reliability and no guaranteed timings on how quickly a service is executed. - C4 Internet outbound connection required to call IFTTT webhooks and not blocked by firewall Also, the outbound C4-->IFTTT functionality does not require port forward which some may be concerned about. Port forwarding only required for IFTTT-->C4 actions.
  6. Just got the Chowmain IFTTT driver - love it! 1) Set up my family room keypad to change color based on what game is on - orange for NHL, red for NHL etc. I suggested the TV just turn on so we could watch, but the wife nixed that. 2) Set a light in our morning scene to be on only when it is supposed to rain that day. That is trickier than I thought, seeing as how the prediction seems to push at a random time. 3) Set the lights to come on when I arrive home after dark. Set the HVAC to turn on if I come home in the middle of the day. 4) Set the HVAC to adjust based on the predicted high/low temp. 5) Logging the HVAC status to gdocs... which doesn't work yet. Questions: Anyone know what defines the 'variables' that you can see in the 'Value 1' section? I can't select things that would seem obvious, like the temperature from the Card Logic temp modules I have. IFTTT doesn't seem to trigger when the thermostats change state (i.e., perhaps it isn't 'reported' to C4). I would just replace the thermostat, but I have 4 of them and a zone controller... [edit... and for the love of all things sacred... you can't even see the list of supported zwave devices unless you are a dealer. It's like they go out of their way to be difficult.]
  7. Searched the internet for a Hive Active lights driver for the bulbs, sockets and hub and can’t find one, has anyone integrated this in to their system.
  8. Hi guys, Its rare that i'm excited about a driver (i build them everyday) but this driver here adds so much to Control4 especially to those of you who have Composer Home Edition. This driver is pretty much ready for release. I'm just putting the final touches on the documentation so once thats complete it'll be ready for everyone to use. The IFTTT maker driver is a bi-directional driver which adds communications from Control4 to IFTTT to control any service or product on IFTTT and vice versa. You can replace quite a few outbound services by having Control4 send emails, push notifications, SMS's and more to IFTTT (it pretty much replaces the majority of the functionality of our Notification Suite and Control4's 4sight). It also does the same thing as many other 3rd party inbound services like Geofencing drivers, Amazon Alexa drivers, various Calandar drivers and more. Here are some examples of what you can achieve but at the end of the day its really upto your imagination. Lastly a big thanks to Mitch for helping me out with brainstorming with me and testing the driver. Without him the driver wouldn't be as fast and responsive as it is today. Outbound Examples (Control4 > IFTTT) Control4 can send SMS’s via your Android phone (IF app must be downloaded to the phone) Control4 can call your phone number and say a message (for security alarms, smoke alarms and other emergencies).

  9. Just been playing with IFTTT and Alexa today. Using Alan Chow's driver for pushover to C4. Works really well 'Alex trigger dining room radio' ... radio starts playing through NuVo system. I know this is old hat to US users, but I've got some very excited customers!
