Smappee now also supports IFTTT, a web-based service that offers clear instructions for creating powerful connections, in accordance with the principle of “IF This; Then That”,’ says Stefan Grosjean, founder and CEO of Smappee. ‘You can, for example, set Philips Hue bulbs to flash red when your home energy consumption exceeds a pre-set limit. Or, you can have Smappee send you an email or text message if it notices that your total energy consumption has fallen under a particular threshold. This feature enables you to respond on time in case of a power failure. In response to popular demand, we have also developed an open API to enable other parties to build smart applications for Smappee.
