IFTTT Setup Instructions

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

MotionBlinds and IFTTT 01

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.

MotionBlinds and IFTTT

The MotionBlinds application is one of the many services that works with IFTTT. MotionBlinds 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.

  • 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 MotionBlinds smartphone application.

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