iF THIS THEN THAT
The site, “If this then that” offers trigger actions as a web service. It works with recipes and channels. Recipes are the “if this then that” relationship, and channels define the this and that.
It has a long list of pre-canned channels and recipes, but sadly NOT an output RSS/XML channel. How to write one? (it looks like writing channels is only done inside the corporate firewall.)
- I have set up a bunch of rss/sms triggers to let people know when I have blogged. This led me to pay for the service.
- I wanted to set a trigger to turn my phone wifi onto my home wifi when I came home. This article https://ting.com/blog/automatically-connect-to-wi-fi/ was the best I could find; I’ll have another look sometime. This recipe raises a notification, maybe I should send a text.
- I think turn the sound up at 8:30 still works.
