Jay at Polyideas has created some advanced scripts connecting the in-beta Adafruit IO with IFTTT.com. Adafruit has a channel on IFTTT.com (as well as Zapier now!) setup with Adafruit IO Triggers and Actions to enable more advanced interactions.
From Jay’s post:
Since I live next to a large hill, the sun sets behind the hill long before it actually sets below the horizon, leaving my house dark for about an hour or so in the summer, and longer in the winter. I wanted to have the lights come on before sunset. Unfortunately I couldn’t find a way to do this with the basic IFTTT channels, so I enlisted the help of Adafruit IO and the Python library Pysolar.
We’ll have more posts with useful projects using Adafruit IO in the near future. Adafruit IO is currently in beta, but you can get added to the list anytime.
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
