Can't wait for IFTT intergration, I think it will give the lametric a lot more power. For instance, IF the LA Lakers are playing, then send live scores to Lametric display.

Even some smart home integration, IF doorbell is pressed, play tone and display doorbell icon/text.

Keep up the great work guys, you're on the verge of something awesome!

I have been working on IFTTT integration since my Lametric arrived, and I am pleased to say I have it working. 

Due to the limitations of the Lametric Developer Apps, I have been unable to implement this as tightly as I would have wanted, but it does work. 

I am finishing off the web-front to it along with instructions to set it up, and shall post further information as soon as this is done.

Is there much interest in this?

My implementation allows you to create any recipe using IFTTT or Do Button app, and post to lametric untethered (ie you can be out of the home and still push messages to the Lametric). It's been especially useful using the location channels on IFTTT, as you can set it up to push an alert to lametric to notify when you are on your way home from work etc. As above, I have my system up and running already. Im just creating a front-end for it before i post full details. Glad to see there's interest in this. Hopefully native support will come in due course.

OK Folks, it's here... IFTTT/DO Button App Support for Lametric!

Due to the limitations of Lametric at this current point in time, the setup for this is lengthly, but straight forward. I have invested a lot of my own time into getting this working for you all, whilst I know Lametric are working on a more integrated solution. This should, however, allow full IFTTT interaction with your Lametric until such a time.

To setup, please visit and follow the instructions. 

You should be up and running within about 5-10 minutes if you follow the instructions carefully. 

Please give your feedback here - suggestions and comments most welcome!

Finally finished my LaMetric IFTTT weather kitchen holder. 

Thanks James, for making this one a reality.

Yep, firmware 1.0.25 installed.... don't think auto timezone is working however... :-(

I think I've managed to get it working, thank you!

It would be nice to have some examples of how we can use this, is that a possibility? Inspiration so to speak... ;-)

Well done James. Waiting for your app :)

Glad you got it working! You can chose to use it however you wish really.. I set mine up so that whenever I leave work it pushes a message to the lametric to say I'm on my way home!

Works like a charm - Thank you

It displays about 4 and a half times on mine, then goes back to autoscroll (which I previously enabled) so I get the time weather and an IFTT trigger - Perfect.

I would be interested in what triggers people are using.  I set my to trigger on new email, for testing, now I'm thinking ahead and wondering If I can use this with HomeKit or similar

Just out of interest, has anyone found a IFTTT compatible doorbell?

I must be half asleep as I can't work it out  :/

Once I have connected word press, Im not sure how to build the rest of the IFTTT 
recipe. Don't stress though, I can wait for my brain cells to wake up and try again or for the smart atoms version.


Are you doing what I did first of all and setting this up as the THIS trigger rather than the THAT action?

For testing I set up a gmail trigger and linked that as the trigger, then you can set up the action, the instruction work, read each paragraph first to understand the steps.  You'll get there

I'm right in saying we setup a 'do' wordpress recipe for each notification we want to fire, correct? i.e. one for "I'm arriving home", one for "I'm leaving", each with it's own title and body...

I'm trying to figure out if, or how, I can integrate it with my Plex home media system. Currently I have a program connected to Plex that sends out emails when a movie is started or stopped, and I currently use hashtags in the email titles (#started, #stopped, #paused) to trigger ifttt events such as dimming my hue lights etc. I'm presuming however that it's not possible to inject things into the LaMetric notification, for example the email subject or body, so I could for example have LaMetric scroll the movie being played, or the user playing the file?
