IFTTT Notification Options

IFTTT Notification Options

IFTTT offers a lot more options to notify you in case of an emergency

SkylinkNet will notify you regarding the incidents such as sensor activation or alarm during a break in or other emergency situations with the built-in push notification of your smartphone. What if you would also like to notify someone who is not using the SkylinkNet App? such as your friends, neighbors, relatives while you are on vacation?

Here are several new ways you can setup your SkylinkNet along with IFTTT to have more options for notification.

1) Send a text message – You can send a text message to designated phone number(s) when the alarm goes off. This is one of the most useful applets. However, please note that IFTTT only allows each account to send up to 100 messages a month, please be aware. But this is ideal for panic alarm situation.


2) Call someone – You can set up IFTTT to call a phone number and it will playback a user defined voice message.

3) Email – You can always send the emergency message by email.

4) Skype – Skype channel on IFTTT has just been launched recently, so instead of the above notification, IFTTT can send a message on Skype for all the SkylinkNet events. This is ideal for those of you who is logged in to Skype all the time.

Thieves Use Automatic Garage Door Openers To Access Homes In Suffolk County

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – Automatic garage door openers are a staple of suburban life, but police urge users to be careful about where they leave them. http://cbsloc.al/1rFSr3X

Several reminders to prevent this from happening to you:

  • Lock your vehicles at all times
  • Lock your entry door from the garage to your house
  • Don’t leave your garage door opener in your vehicle, regardless where you park, cause thieves can always get the vehicle registration in your glovebox which has your address
  • Last but no least, consider a garage door opener that has passcode protection feature, so nobody can open your door except you, such as this one: https://www.skylinkhome.com/products/universal-smart-button
