Always be prepared for what’s outside with Weather Underground’s hyperlocal data and IFTTT’s powerful notification services. Using weather data to inform your IoT devices can help them run more efficiently and be a powerful way to control your smart home. Just as the temperature and conditions help you determine what to wear, they also inform the choices you make about the indoor temperature, gardening decisions, and lighting settings.
Fine-tune your smart home automatically with IFTTT and weather.
Using smart lights to communicate the weather can be both fun and informative. Use these Applets to remind your kids to bring their rain jacket or to ensure you never forget to wear sunscreen.

These Applets are also ideal for property managers who can maintain their properties from afar.

Smart garden and outdoor devices can assist you in maintaining a yard that will be the envy of your neighborhood. With weather Applets, you can stop questioning whether you are over- or under-watering your plants. Skip mowing your lawn if it just rained and only start your sprinklers when the sun is down to avoid scorching your grass.
