Maybe it started with a two-pack of Voltson WiFi plugs you found on Lightning Deals (we wouldn’t be surprised). They were so discounted—why not give them a try?

So now you’ve really enjoyed using Voltson to get coffee started from bed at 6:30am. But you know there’s more.

For instance, did you know VeSync is on the verge of releasing applets with IFTTT? If you’re unfamiliar, just imagine this:

  • It’s 8:07am. You run out the door to work, shouting, “Alexa, turn off all my lights!”

  • Alexa obliges. No lamp is left burning useless electricity. Great!

Now, what if you’re suddenly stuck in a busy season at work for multiple days? Day in and day out, all the lights at home are still off at 9:15pm, and the house looks consistently unoccupied. Here’s where it might look like to set up an IFTTT applet with VeSync and your outlets:

  • Your house now knows that if all those lights are still off eleven hours after you left, it’s got to do two things: turn on one Voltson-plugged living room lamp at 7:30pm, and feed Fido at 7:45pm with the Voltson-plugged dog feeder.

  • However, if you get home at 6:30pm and turn on a light, then it won’t fulfill those conditional actions. It’ll “know” you’re there, and that you fully intend to feed Fido by hand 🐶
