It's one thing to have your coffee maker on a schedule. It's something else entirely to have it turn on and brew a cup of coffee, only after you wake up and without pressing a single button.
Coffee makers like the Keurig have had the ability to power on and begin heating the water on a set schedule for years now. It's incredibly convenient to wake up to hot water, pop in a pod, push a button and have hot, brewed coffee in a minute or less.
But what if could have your coffee made each morning without pushing a button? And what if you don't wake up at the same time every day?
Learn how you can have your morning cup brewed, automatically, only after you get out of bed every morning.
The downside to making coffee automatically every morning is that it doesn't come cheap. In total, the smart devices will cost you between $200 and $350.
To activate the channels, create or log in to your account at ifttt.com. Click "Channels" in the upper-right corner of the site. Type the brand of fitness tracker in the search bar, click the corresponding icon in the results, click Connect and authenticate the connection. Repeat these steps for the WeMo Coffeemaker channel.
Once you have the proper devices and the IFTTT channels activated, setting up the recipe should only take a minute or so.
Now when your tracker syncs with your phone in the morning, your coffee maker will turn on and begin to brew coffee, but only after you've woken up. Just don't forget to put water and coffee in the coffee maker before going to bed.
