Robot integration with If This Then That (IFTTT)

P1rP1r admin

I would love to see integration for the robot with https://ifttt.com/. That way I could control it and see the status via my home automation system.

  • Keep your eyes open fun things are coming in the releases ahead :)

  • Hi all! I just downloaded the latest version of the app and updated the firmware on my robot, but I can't find any info on IFTT integration.

    Is it available in the 4.0 release?

    @guyerland , Hello and welcome to the community! you are correct IFTTT was not available in field tests.
    @MartinKwarnmark Any more hints of when can we expect the IFTTT ? :smile:

  • Hi!
    The only thing left is administration. We will be done before we launch the application to the world. Technically everything is in place.
    I will update as soon as we go live

    Basic question: will IFTTT enable the integration with AI Assistants like Google Home?

    And what would be the benefits of enabling IFTTT? I use it a bit, but right now I can't imagine how add applets for the robot. Would be good to have some ideas :)

    @Rafael , yes if you link Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa to IFTTT then you can create your own voice commands so that you for example say. "Ok google, start cleaning" and the cleaning will start or "Ok google, pause cleaning" etc. However IFTTT give a lot of possibilities so you could also for example link your twitter account and let the robot send a tweet every time it starts cleaning although I guess your followers would be a bit annoyed after a while :smiley: You could also add location feature and let the cleaning start evertime you leave the home. Plus much more

    Looking forward to it! Seems very cool..I might not share the info on my twitter, but I will indeed use the voice commands :smile:

  • Hey is there any update on this. I am really wating for this feature, as my home automation system isn't quit able so far to control the robot? As my home automation system knows when I am not home it would be a big advantage in comparasion to the scheudled cleaning.
    And will this feature be avaible for the AEG RX9, too? As I can see in the app settings it is using the cloud from electrolux, so I guess it will be?

  • I just noticed that this feature is advertised in app description for IOS app but it isn't avaible in ifttt for AEG or Electrolux. Do I miss something???
    (It isn't advertised in the Adnroid description)

  • Hi ,
    This is coming very soon it is unfortunate that it is on appstore. It went in to early in the release notes. The legal and business side of everything is not completely done. The feature should be available very soon.
    The descriptions are the whats new for this release the descriptions can be changed for Android but not for iOS without releasing a new version of the application.

    It will be done soon

  • that is awesome, I will try it out immediately and get back to you as soon as possible
