Icontrol to add IFTTT to its Piper DIY security system at CES

Icontrol's all-in-one Piper home security systems take steps toward smart home inclusivity with an upcoming IFTTT channel.


Icontrol, the team behind the $199 Piper Classic and the $279 Piper NV, just announced that it's getting its own IFTTT channel by the end of March.

The Piper Classic and the Piper NV are two innovative all-in-one home security systems. With built-in sirens, a whole suite of security and environmental sensors, 180-degree fisheye lenses, 1080p high-definition live streaming, free cloud storage and a built-in Z-Wave hubs, Piper units already have a lot to offer someone interested in DIY security.

While these devices are already compatible with select Z-Wave accessories, adding an IFTTT channel to the equation will offer even more opportunities for Piper systems to work with third-party devices, ranging from a Nest thermostat to Philips Hue LEDs and much more.

Icontrol hasn't locked down a specific date for its IFTTT integration, but plans to launch the new channel toward the end of the first quarter.
