What is IFTTT?

IFTTT stands for If This Then That (clever huh?).  It is another automation tool, similar to Flow but more focused on the consumer side.   IFTTT is free and has many native connectors to various smart home devices including:  NEST, WEMO, Phillips Hue, Ring, and others.  

IFTTT has numerous templates for you to use.  In addition, you can create your own custom template which they call an “Applet”.  One of the things you can do with these Applets is utilize a custom Web Hook.  A web hook gives you a unique HTTP End point which you can call from another application (In our case Flow) to execute an IFTTT action.
