Smart Home

Smarter connections today – and tomorrow

Home Connect gives you easier and more intuitive ways to use your appliances, but that’s not all. Imagine if you could link all your Smart appliances together and make them work in even more useful ways. How about coffee automatically pouring when your alarm goes off, or the alarm itself going off earlier if the temperature outside is below freezing? It's all possible with something called IFTTT – If This Then That. This platform lets you create a truly customised smart home, by connecting almost every Smart technology device together in new and exciting ways. It's simple and easy to use, and can transform technology you already own. Ready to future-proof your living space?


How does IFTTT work with Home Connect?

IFTTT helps you out in countless ways, by connecting different apps, devices or appliances to interact with each other. IFTTT works through a series of little programmes or apps, known as applets. These applets work by linking an action and a response – So, “If this happens, then make that happen”. For instance: scheduling music to play at the end of a washing cycle, launching ambient lighting in your oven hood when your favourite football team plays, or receiving a notification when your laundry is complete. Whatever your lifestyle, Home Connect and IFTTT’s growing range of applets can upgrade almost every aspect of your home life.
