ifttt (If This Then That) is a slick web service that lets you attach event triggers to actions. See the ifttt website for examples of what it can do. Here I'll show you how to use the Maker channel to trigger events from the Bone and have the Bone receive events.

Sending an SMS message from the Bone

There are three steps needed to send SMS messages, set up ifttt, edit a script on the Bone, and then run the script.

Set up ifttt

  1. Create an account on ifttt and
  2. then click Create a Recipe
  3. next click the big blue this
  4. type "make" in the search box and click "Maker"
  5. click the blue "Receive a web request"
  6. enter "sms" for the Event Name and click "Create Trigger"
  7. click on the blue "that"
  8. enter "sms" and click on "SMS"
  9. click on the blue "Send me an SMS"
  10. enter a message to send. You can click on the blue flask in the upper right to insert things into the message.
  11. click "Create Action"
  12. edit the Recipe Title if you want. (I remove "update phone number")
  13. click "Create Recipe"
