On January 21, 2016 the Roost Channel went live on IFTTT
If you are not familiar with IFTTT (If this, then that), it is a software platform that gives you the ability to make simple connections between products (like Roost) and apps (like emails and a bunch of other useful things).
We encourage you to take it for a test drive following the instructions below:
1. Create an IFTTT account or login to IFTTT (if you already have an IFTTT account)
2. Click on the "Channels" tab and Search for the Roost Icon under "Connected Home" or click this shortcut to the Roost Smart Battery Channel (if you haven't yet created an IFTTT account you'll be prompted to do so).
3. Click the "Connect" button and proceed to enter your Roost App login ("+" country code then your phone number without spaces/dashes between the numbers in your phone). Note, you need to include the "+" before your phone number. For example: +14081234567, then enter your Roost Account password. If you don't remember your Roost password, please reset it from the Roost app on your smartphone.
4. Next, "allow" IFTTT to connect to your Roost battery.
From here, you will be prompted to use one of our six initial recipes or create your own. Have fun!
