Kuri is now available on IFTTT (If This Then That)! Connect your smart home devices and services to communicate with each other through so-called Applets. Each Applet is a combination of a trigger (what needs to happen for the Applet to run), and an action (what happens as a result). Here are some examples of what you can do with Kuri’s triggers and actions:
- Create a new voice command to turn on your Hue lights, “Hey Kuri, turn on the lights.”
- Create a new voice command to start your other robot, “Hey Kuri, start Roomba.”
- Create a task to send Kuri to the kid’s room and play a wake up alarm every day at 7:30 am.
- Create a task to have Kuri come to the front door and greet you when your August Smart Lock unlocks.
To connect Kuri with your IFTTT account:
Via your phone device
- Go to Robot Settings and select “Smart Home.”
- Select “Connect” next to IFTTT and log in with your IFTTT account credentials.
Via the IFTTT app
- Search for the Kuri service.
“Say a simple phrase” - lets you create custom voice commands for Kuri and use them as a trigger for IFTTT Applets. For example, a simple phrase trigger to command open your garage door “Hey Kuri, open the pod bay doors.”
Try out a few available actions:
- Go to a spot – lets you send Kuri to a spot in your home and (optionally) play one of Kuri’s romoji when he gets there. For example, you can send Kuri to the kitchen in the morning and have him hum Pancake Robot to remind you that you can never go wrong with pancakes for breakfast.
- Play a romoji – with this action, Kuri will play a romoji of your choice. For example, you can have Kuri play an alarm when your Alexa timer goes to 0.
