Works with IFTTT Instruction Guide

by | Jun 29, 2022 | Tutorial


IFTTT is a platform whose name is short for “if this, then that.”What’s the meaning? you can understand it like this, “if this” is equivalent to a trigger, “then that” is an action. And this platform performs a set of conditional activities by built-in applets and supports different apps, services, and devices, providing great custom capabilities in a uniquely flexible way.

As a provider of smart home solutions, SONOFF insists on enriching smart home solutions from beginning to end. The SONOFF ecosystem covers many third-party platforms that can interact with each other, and IFTTT is one of the main platforms. For example, set your own phrase to ask Google Assistant to control SONOFF devices, turn on/off SONOFF devices based on your location, send an email to you when the camera detects movement, etc.

Getting Started

  • Download and install the eWeLink APP and register an eWeLink account,
