Harmony and IFTTT
With Harmony and IFTTT you can create recipes to automate your home using a wide rage of triggers such as voice, location, twitter feeds and email to start Harmony Activities.

- Create a IFTTT account
- Create an account on the IFTTT website or mobile app. Once you've logged in, you're able to select channels that interest you. When first setting up an account, you must select at least four channels.
- Connect Harmony to IFTTT
- Once Harmony has been connected, you can use IFTTT to set up conditional triggers for your Harmony Activities. Harmony must first be authenticated from the IFTTT platform before you can use triggers to launch a Harmony Activity:
I have multiple remotes in my Harmony account
After authenticating Harmony and IFTTT you'll be able to create recipes triggering an Activity from any of your Harmony hub‑based products. Activities from non-hub based products will not be listed. If you have multiple Harmony hub‑based products then all Activities will be displayed in a single list.
Note: If you have identical Activity names across two of your Harmony hub‑based products then both will be listed. You'll have to try creating a recipe in order to determine which Harmony hub‑based product the Activity is associated with.
Information Harmony shares with IFTTT
Harmony only reveals a list of your Activities, plus a unique token that authenticates IFTTT to start and stop these Activities. IFTTT does not have access to your name, email address, nor the devices in your Harmony Account.
My Activity includes a smart lock device
For security purposes, Harmony doesn't allow third party appications to control smart lock devices (e.g., August Smart Lock). This includes triggering Activities which include a smart lock device. Therefore, triggering an Activity that contains a smart lock device is not possible.

How Harmony integrates with IFTTT
All Harmony hub‑based remotes
Harmony connects with the IFTTT servers, allowing you to trigger your Harmony Activities. Please ensure your IFTTT devices are connected to the same Wi‑Fi network as your Harmony hub.
Harmony remotes without Harmony Hub
As Harmony and the IFTTT communicate over your home Wi‑Fi network, Harmony products that do not come with a Wi‑Fi enabled Harmony Hub cannot integrate with IFTTT.
