Fibaro also extended integration to IFTTT, a third party software service. IFTTT allows its users to control and automate hundreds of internet enabled devices. Underneath the IFTTT umbrella is everything from smart bulbs, thermostats, smart watches and robot vacuums .

Window treatment company Hunter Douglas is onboard as well. The company's motorized, app-controlled shades will play nice with Fibaro's smart home hub and devices too. Fibaro also explained to CNET that the timing of these integrations is immediate, as in they should all work right now.
