Alarm Arming with IFTTT?

Is it possible to use IFTTT to change my alarm status (disarm, alarm home, alarm away)? Right now I have to use the mobile app or the smarttiles, but I can’t seem to find a method where I can create an ifttt recipe (or even just with the maker channel on ifttt) to change the settings. Anyone have any clues on this?

There are several ways to do this, but the easiest is just to set up a routine for the arm state that you want, then use a virtual switch to run that routine, then use IFTTT to change that virtual switch.

You can use the “switch activates home phrase” from the marketplace to tie the routine and the switch together.

Open the mobile app
Select marketplace (asterisk icon in lower right)
Select smartapps
Select Lights and Switches
Scroll down to find the smartapp and install it
