Free (ish) IFTTT driver workaround

Recommended Posts

Realized today, you can use lutron light switches as an IFTTT workaround to trigger control4.  To do this you can set any IFTTT trigger (IF) and set your action (then) to set a specific light value on a lutron light.  You can then program any control4 action off that light % and set up several different actions.  Last you can also include in your control4 action to turn the light back off so your lights aren't on.  I don't have one but guessing you could do this with a lutron dimmer which if you didn't have it plugged into a light you wouldn't have to worry about the light turning on. 

So for the cost of a lutron device or potentially free if you already have them you don't need to buy a driver to integrate IFTTT triggers.   I'm sure you guys who are much smarter than me have already thought of this but for the new guys like me just thought I'd share
