Our new shared location capability allows you to control the smart devices in your home and other automations based on the location of your favorite people. Trigger your Applets based on the location of multiple people with the new Group Location service. Check out what other people are doing with Group Location!
Stay connected and get notified
Get notified when someone comes home
Get a notification when people in your family come and go from your home. This is a perfect way to know if your partner got home safely from work or to know if anyone was home to take the dog out in the evening.
You can take this Applet a step further using the “When someone enters/exits” trigger, so you can find out when people arrive and when they leave your designated area.
Send yourself a notification for "Quality time" when everyone is home
It can be tricky to find the time to spend all together when everyone has busy schedules. Get a notification 30 minutes after everyone gets home as a reminder to spend time together.
Need anything from the store?
Send a message via Telegram, Android SMS, Discord, or Gmail to ask if anyone in your household needs anything from the store the next time you go in. It’s thoughtful, and you will never forget to pick up the milk!
Smart home devices
You can secure your home and reduce your energy consumption using Group Location triggers. These Applets can help you power down unnecessary devices and reduce your AC or heating usage when no one is home, while making sure to reset your preferences when someone gets back to the house.
Manage your lighting
Use any of the lighting services on IFTTT in tandem with Group Location to make sure your lights are off when no one is home, or turn them on when the first person arrives back at the house.
Arm and disarm home security system
Increase your home’s security by arming the house when everyone has left. This is an easy way to ensure your system is activated, while also acting as an extra way to be certain the doors are locked and closed.
Manage your AC and heating based on the activity in your home. This can be a powerful way to reduce your energy costs and avoid leaving the AC on all day by accident!
Just for fun
Make a theme song for the people in your family using your Android device and any Group Location triggers. Give everyone a warm welcome over your Sonos or give yourself a smile when you hear your family’s favorite song.
