IFTTT Adds to their Smart Home Channel Arsenal with Myfox

Automation service IFTTT recently added  the Myfox Channel.  Myfox is a French home security and automation platform  that consists of three things:

i) Door/window intrusion detectors called TAG

ii) Video surveillance camera

iii) App for control and monitoring for iOS and Android

This brings the growing number of smart home Channels on IFTTT to three: SmartThings, Manything, and Myfox.

As noted in a previous blog post about IFTTT, any IP/WiFi home security camera that has motion detection and email alerts (which pretty much all do)  can be used as a trigger using the IFTTT Gmail channel, enabling a given camera to trigger actions by connecting the Gmail channel to any other IFTTT channel by creating or using an existing Recipe.

IFTTT is becoming an increasingly valuable service for smart home and Internet of Things users.
