Features   Wireless Accessories What are Wireless Accessories? Wireless accessories inform you of changes in your home by way of sensors and let you control the state of your household appliances remotely. Piper also lets you set an automation schedule or turn your appliances on or off based on temperature or ambient light levels in your home. What is Z-Wave?

Working with IFTTT What is IFTT? IFTTT is a web-based service that offers you creative control over the products and apps you love. Piper is now compatible with IFTTT, allowing you to integrate your home security with other apps and home automation products including Phillips Hue, Amazon Echo, and Nest Thermostat. These simple but powerful connections offer you new ways to protect your home, business, family, or pets. How does it work with Piper? IFTTT allows you to create Recipes with the simple statement its name represents—“If This Then That.” Channels are the basic building blocks of Recipes. Each Channel corresponds to an app or product and has its own “This” triggers and “That” actions. Choosing a “This” trigger and a “That action creates your unique Recipe. IFTTT also has a Do Button app that can be downloaded separately. It allows you to create a shortcut to the “That” actions, so with a single tap from your home screen on your mobile device you can change your security mode, receive a notification to arm Piper, or automate certain accessories. Other apps are available from IFTTT that involve similar simplified functionalities. To create these Recipes, you first have to connect to the Piper Channel through IFTTT.
