App and device interaction service IFTTT has launched a new partner platform that enables third-party developers to bake the company's automated actions into their apps.

For those unfamiliar with IFTTT (IF This, Then That), the service lets users link smart devices, services, and apps in the form of workflows that trigger automated actions – saving photos you're tagged in on Facebook to Dropbox, for instance, or turning on the heating at home when you leave the office.

IFTTT recipes
Previously, users had to download the IFTTT app or log on to its website to set up such workflows, but the New Partner Platform, which has been in closed beta testing for the last year, means automations can now be integrated and controlled within other apps, enabling gadgets and services to more easily connect to one another.

The public rollout comes to a number of partners, including video doorbell maker Ring, connected car service Automatic, banking app Qapital, air quality monitor Foobot, garage door automation Garageio, smart thermostat Hive, indoor air and health monitoring device Awair, Wi-Fi doorbell Skybell, connected light bulb maker LIFX, responsive lighting maker Stack Lighting, real-time weather service Bloomsky, group voice messenger Roger, and home security service abode.

Users who own apps or smart devices by any of these companies should be able to make use of the IFTTT recipe integration any day now.

The If app is a free download available for iPad and iPhone on the App Store. [Direct Link]

That looks interesting. I'll have to give this a try with my Hue lights and see what neat things I could do with it.

Can't seem to work out... Turn lights on when I get into certain gps zone AND the time is between 6pm and 6am.

ie. I don't need lights on in the daytime.

Any ideas who to do this with IFTTT?
If you like tinkering around, openHAB ('http://www.openhab.org') should be useful for that.

I use IFTTT to find apps gone free. You can select categories so it doesn't spam your notifications.
