I’m a pretty serious geek. Always have been and always will. I enjoy small obsessions over tiny things and one of those pursuits has long been about household and lifestyle automation. Making the machines work for us; not us for them.
I’ve been using a tool call IFTTT for a few years. It stands for:
IF This Then That
You can use it to do cool thins like:
If I arrive at my House, Then turn my cellphone to silent
If I change my picture on Facebook , Then update my Twitter picture.
It’s not rocket science but it’s awfully neat.
I’ve noticed that they’ve added a bunch of automation task for gardeners. Things like:
- Send me a text message when it’s going to freeze overnight
- Alert my phone when my plants need watering
- Send me an email to remind me to water the plants.
Anyway, I thought it was pretty cool. And thought you might want to check it out too.
