IFTTT adds 9 new channels for Hive plugs, tracMO, Luxafor, Orion, and more

I always have fun seeing which services are being added to IFTTT: it leads me to discover new products I'd never heard about, it makes me imagine scenarios for automations that I wouldn't have considered previously, and it reminds me of how much of our lives nowadays can be relegated to a server somewhere.

Over the past couple of weeks, 9 new channels have been added to IFTTT. I'd only heard of Hive before, but you may find something here that you've been anxiously waiting for and that's super popular in your environment. Here they are:

  • SafeTrek, an app and service that can dispatch help (police, ambulance, fire truck) in an emergency
  • Guardzilla, a security camera company with several models including a 360-deg HD indoor cam
  • Hive Active Plug, a WiFi-connected smart plug
  • iDrate, a smart garden watering controller
  • Orion, the makers of Onyx, a connected walkie-talkie for teams
  • data.world, "an online platform designed for data and the people who work with data"...

Best of all, the game can be played at your own pace – there's no pressure to be super speedy about swapping tiles.
