Video: Stringify is IFTTT alternative smart home Controller in the Cloud
many people have heard of IFTTT by now, but possibly not Stringify.
Stringify offers a multi-step logic controller in the Cloud and works with much more than 500 products and services including Nest, Philips Hue, Ring, Amazon Alexa, Honeywell, Insteon, LIFX, Netgear and Google.
Up until recently an IFTTT recipe has allowed one event to set off one response. Stringify’s version (called a ‘Flow’) can fire a multitude of reactions in a complex macro.
While IFTTT replaced their ‘Recipes’ with new ‘Applets’ last November, it’s still playing catchup to some extent. however it has the advantage of offering a web version, unlike Stringify where all setup has to be completed through the iOS app (an Android open Beta due in the next few weeks).
Right now IFTTT is probably simpler to use with much more hardware and services supported, while Stringify is much more powerful but not as easy to use. Which controller in the Cloud have you chosen? Check out the videos below.
