Well this looks fun! I’ve got A LOT of IFTTT recipes made that tie in with smart things.
With Life360, I already get notifications when my wife or I go or leave from our respective jobs or home.
So with that, we can both tell when we leave work early or whatever, and that helps with planning things out like my wife will sometimes send me a text, “Hey, while you’re out, can you pickup some_____?” and that way we can get more done because my job is a lot more flexible than hers is.
I also have eventghost on my PC, which I can then connect with pushbullet dynamically to and from IFTTT, so when I get an alert with Smart Things, I utilize IFTTT to record everything, any lights that come on, any motion detected, any pictures or video taken (along with Sentry which also connects to IFTTT), I have an SMS sent to both myself and my wife as well as a couple of our very close friends who could respond. I’m actually working on a way to have the system automatically contact emergency services.
I also have EventGhost tell me everyday what the price of bitcoin is, just in case it gets low and I can buy a lot more and make money in the future.
Additionally, any texts I get, any texts my wife gets, any texts we send out, we track them all in an excel spreadsheet in case anything important is messaged to us that we want to reference later like part numbers of things, or the name of a website or something.
Also, I have the ‘Automatic’ dongle installed on my car, so I’m able to reset the light on my car in case there’s an engine light on, I’m able to track all my trips and how much I spent in gas for them. I also have emergency notification in case one of us is in an accident. Additionally, if either of us calls 911 the other one of us gets an SMS saying that we’ve just called 911 and need to respond immediately.
We also have life tracking with life360 for our phones to find out where each other are, in case anything goes south, as long as one of us has our phones on us, we can be found rather quickly.
