Fing, Fingbox and IFTTT

Fing is getting 3rd party support! Awesome!

One of my favourite network tools and apps just tweeted about something really exciting. For a while now, I have been bothering PR team about the API and 3rd party access to the Fingbox. Guess what? The 3rd party support finally happened. Say hi to Fingbox and IFTTT integration

Fing, Fingbox and IFTTT

My phone just buzzed and I got this tweeter update:

I’m very excited as Fingbox is a very capable tool and I’m looking forward to Fing, Fingbox and IFTTT integration. I signed up (although late) for the beta access  – and my email just arrived.

I have logged in to my IFTTT account and loaded the Fing trigger to see the available options. And to my surprise, there is almost anything you could imagine!

Additionally, Fingbox triggers come with the following modifiers:

  • User Groups
  • Active time (the hour and sun-based)
  • Multiple Fingboxes
  • Internet speed and threshold
  • Individual devices

That’s impressive even for beta access… Let’s see what actions are available, as I’m really surprised that you can not only use Fingbox and IFTT as the trigger but also as an action:

The internet actions can be applied to individual users and adjusted for the specific amount of time.

Most popular FIngbox and IFTTT recipes

Currently, the most popular things to do with your Fingbox are:

  1. Email me when Fingbox detects a drop in internet speed
  2. Have Fingbox record a presence log in a Google Spreadsheet
  3. Play a light effect on Fingbox when a user arrives
  4. Text Alert when Fingbox detects someone arrived
  5. Turn on Hue Lights when someone arrives

These are created by the Fing team and are pretty cool already, I picked the most popular ones from the list of 30 available recipes.

Conclusion

If you were holding off, there is no better time to get the Fingbox now! It’s awesome especially if you play a lot with network connected devices.
