Tutorial – How to Control IFTTT from Home Assistant, Tasker, and other Tech

In this video, I’ll be doing a tutorial and demo on how to get started with IFTTT and Home Assistant. If you have never used IFTTT before, you should check it out! It’s a great way to connect with tons of different services, devices and tech. When combined with Home Assistant, it opens up thousands of Home Automation opportunities. IFTTT is sweet, because it is easy to control from Tasker, Home Assistant, and more. Let me know if you have any questions or thoughts. Happy to help as I can! Happy 4th of July to all the American folks!

    Hi Ben. Love the channel. Thanks so much. Is there a way to get IFTTT and Maker working on either a Tor or OpenVPN connection? If yes, are there any security related concerns I need to be aware of?

    Your videos are excellent and well done. I've been inspired by them and in the process of piecing together an ha system. One thing I would like to see is a way to control my garage door using one of my many raspberry Pi's. I did watch your video on the garage door controller but I can't seem to bring myself to buy a device to do what I know an r-pi can do. I would like to include video with confirmation (door state texting) to the door open-close control. You seem to know your way around programing and the raspberry-pi so maybe you could help.
