This project uses an IFTTT applet which uses GraspIO as a Trigger and Philips Hue as the Action to turn on the Philips Hue light when the ambient light level (detected by Cloudio) drops below a specified value.
This project uses an IFTTT applets as described below -
IFTTT Trigger – Cloudio's Light sensor's reading drops below specified value (here, 327)
IFTTT Action – Philips Hue lights turn on
The 2 main steps here are -
Step 1: Configuring Cloudio to run as an IFTTT Trigger
This involves creating a project that uses the IFTTT block in Trigger mode, and
Step 2: Creating and deploying the IFTTT applet(s)
This step creates an IFTTT applet that uses
Upload this project to Cloudio.
Your Cloudio is now configured to work as a trigger for the applet created in the next step.
On IFTTT, create a new applet.
Select the trigger type from the list
Here, 'Trigger when Analog sensor fires' is selected as this project uses an analog sensor (Light) as the trigger.
To select the actual trigger, from the drop-down menu, select the entry corresponding to the trigger created in Step 1 (Light sensor's reading less than 327 on the board Cloudio 101).
(Note: This entries in this selection represents - Boardname_Sensor_Port_ConditionalOperator_TriggerValue)
Select the settings for the Philips Hue lights.
Your applet is now ready. Press Finish to run this applet.
After the appletis deployed, the Philips Hue lights turn on when the ambient light level detected by Cloudio drops below the specified value (here, 327).
