Withings Users Gain Access to Hundreds of Apps to Take Privacy, Security, and Home Health to the Next Level
Withings, the leader in the connected health revolution, has taken security, privacy and home health to the next level through a partnership with IFTTT, a service that allows rule-based actions and triggers between a range of devices and services. Users can enhance their Withings Home, a HD security camera equipped with environmental sensors, by connecting with IFTTT app to make household automation a reality. Through IFTTT, Withings Home now connects with Philips Hue, Nest Thermostat, WeMo products, and many more.
Comprehensive Home Monitoring System
Withings Home is one of the most comprehensive home monitoring solutions on the market, allowing users to stay connected to their home and family from anywhere. It has the highest quality video complete with a 135° wide-angle zoom, infrared night vision, and the ability to detect levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) inside the home. New parents can take comfort in having superior features such as Baby Monitor Mode, which has continuous monitoring, alerts and interactive push-to-talk. Withings Home also includes curated lullaby sound & light programs.
Make Home Automation a Reality
With IFTTT, it’s easy to create simple connections between Withings Home and any other compatible devices or apps. Users can easily create “Recipes” to automate their home using a wide range of triggers such as motion alert, noise detection, or air quality level.
The Withings Home IFTTT page includes examples of Recipes (ifttt.com/withingshome):
- Reinforce privacy: Turn off Withings Home automatically when I’m home, turn it back on when I’m away using geolocation from my phone.
- Make security seamless: When I lock my door with my SmartThings door lock, my Withings Home will turn on. When there is a motion or noise alert, my Philips Hue lights will blink.
- Improve home health: When bad air quality is detected, it will turn on my WeMo air purifier automatically or change the color of my Philips Hue light to red.
“There has been tremendous growth in the home automation sector, and Withings saw an opportunity to work with IFTTT to deliver an elegant way to connect families to their homes,” said Cédric Hutchings, CEO of Withings. “Consumers are looking to secure their home environment in today’s unpredictable world, and the new Withings Home automation service gives us the piece of mind that we need to protect our family’s well-being.”
