Setting up the Heatmiser IFTTT Channel

With the Heatmiser IFTTT Channel, your Heatmiser Neo/SmartStat is even better connected…

Connecting Heatmiser

The Heatmiser IFTTT Channel connects your Heatmiser Neo/SmartStat System to your favourite Apps and Devices. IFTTT allows you to create Applets that consist of a single trigger and multiple actions.

Put simply, If this trigger occurs, make these action(s) happen.

In order for your Heatmiser Neo/SmartStat to work with IFTTT, you need to connect your Heatmiser Account with your IFTTT Account, this gives permission to IFTTT to control your Heatmiser System.
