IFTTT Integration

IFTTT is a web service that allows you to connect the services, apps and products you use in everyday life.  Our new HomeSeer Channel on IFTTT allows you to connect your online world with all the things you do at home... and vice versa. With IFTTT and HomeSeer, the connected web meets the connected home!
