Connect MOTION with IFTTT

Back

MOTION blinds can be connected to IFTTT. Please follow these instructions step-by-step.




If This, Then That

IFTTT is an automation service that enables you to connect services so that, when something happens with one service, a trigger goes off and an action takes place automatically on the other.

MOTION and IFTTT

The MOTION Blinds application is one of the many services that works with IFTTT. MOTION can be connected to any other service that works with IFTTT through the service that is called Connector. This opens a world of smart automation options for your blinds.

Create Applets

When something happens on one service, it triggers an action on another. This is called an "Applet". To create applets, you first have to create an account with IFTTT.

Step 1: Create an account

Visit the IFTTT website and click on Sign up to create an account.


Step 2: Create an applet

Now choose a specific service that you want to trigger. To provide you with an example, we select the smart "Weather Underground" service that uses the weather based on your location. We setup a trigger action based on temperature.




Step 3: Choose your trigger


Complete the trigger fields.



Step 4: Choose your service and actions

Now click on That to connect an action service to your trigger:

Search for the Connector service to setup your action:


Now you need to connect with Connector. Click on "connect" and sign in with the MOTION Blinds account details that you are using for the MOTION Blinds smartphone application. Once IFTTT is connected to Connector you can select one of the following actions:

  • With the action “Open Blind”, you can open one specific blind.
  • The action “Close Blind” enables you to close one specific blind.
  • With “Open a blind to a certain position” you can set a blind to a preset position.
  • With the “Activate scene” action, you can activate a scene that you have created in the MOTION Blinds smartphone application.

    For our example, we choose the action "Activate scene". A drop-down menu shows the scenes that you have created in the MOTION Blinds app.


Step 5: Review and finish your applet

Finally, you will be asked to review and finish your applet. If you want to, you can enable notifications when the applet runs. Click "Finish" to complete the installation of your applet.
