End of week 1 of operation Brighton Marathon. I’ve done initial testing on all the wearables this week and today decided that I needed more of a visual indicator to highlight when i’ve achieved my daily step goal. So i’ve created a quick ‘Internet of Things’ recipe to link my Fitbit Surge to my Phillips HUE lights in my home Xlab. This simple recipe means that I have connected the fitness wearable on my wrist to a set of LED lights in my Xlab. When I achieve my daily step goal the recipe turns the LED lights green. To do this I have done the following.
- Created an account on the awesome IFTTT (IF THIS THEN THAT)
- Added my Fitbit account to IFTTT
- Added my Phillips HUE account to IFTTT
- Created a trigger action so that meeting my daily step goal on my Fitbit Surge, triggers my Phillips Hue lights to turn green.
