Tecla & IFTTT


IFTTT is a free online platform that allows you to create “applets”, recipes that can connect various services together. Tecla is a service that can be used to trigger events in other services, many smart home devices are services in IFTTT. With IFTTT you can also control lights and lamps from Philips Hue and other appliances like fans or heaters with something like WeMo switches.

You can create buttons in the Tecla App that can be used as triggers when creating applets in the IFTTT platform once the Tecla app and IFTTT have been linked. 

You can linked the tecla app with IFTTT by clicking the prompt after you create a button or using this link:
