If the holidays are being hosted at your house this year, you probably have a thing or two to prepare. You have a lot on your plate between coordinating who brings what, and when your main dish comes out of the oven. Let IFTTT help with some of the details.
Clean the house
You can integrate your robot vacuum with your calendar so it knows to clean up before your guests arrive, or press a button so it begins to tidy up. Your Litter-Robot can even handle cleaning up after your pets so that’s one less thing to do.
- Start a cleaning job before an event on your calendar
- Make sure your home is clean in time to be the perfect Christmas host
- Clean a specific room with the touch of a button
- Tell Alexa to trigger scoop the poop to start a Litter-Robot clean cycle
- Schedule cleaning at a certain time everday
- Start cleaning when you leave an area
- Clean up before a party
Send a reminder
Send invites or reminders to your friends and family so they know when to show up and what to bring! You can even use the note widget to send a quick note to a specific person or group in case you need them to pick up napkins on the way.
Make a list, check it twice
Write it all down to help yourself plan. From ingredients to a family recipe to keeping track of your guests, having lists is a powerful way to stay organized and reduce stress. Use the note widget or your voice assistant to quickly add items to your list or track what you have already completed.
Set the mood
Create a custom lighting set up and tell Alexa to set the mood, or impress your friends with a little holiday magic as you press a button and an entire scene comes to life. Either way, Sonos can help you enhance the atmosphere with the perfect soundtrack.
Dinner is ready
Smart ovens like GE Appliances and Home Connect Oven can make it possible to preheat your oven with the press of a button or get a discreet signal when your meal is ready.
After the party is the tidying up
You might be ready to flop into bed and go to sleep after the success of your party. Before you do that, load the dishwasher and remove any barriers on the floor. Your smart home devices will make sure you wake up to a clean space.
