InControl Channel for IFTTT App
Would be great to have IFTTT Channel for InControl so we can use location service and other service integrate with InControl. Right now Wemo, Philipps HUE, SmartThings do have existing channels so it would be great if InControl would also check this out and implment InControl Channel for IFTTT App
The “Make Channel” on IFTTT allows Axial Control to work. You can use the scene “Http Command” to interface with this channel.

Does this “Make Channel” even exist anymore? I can't seem to find it on IFTTT.
@jdwillett2 Your Axial Server is "listening" and does provide a way for you to send POST/PUT/etc from the IFTTT channel to activate scenes and the like. Here's some info on it: http://docs.incontrolha.com/home/introduction
Please could someone do an easy to follow guide on this? I'm sure I'm not the only one who could do with some simple instructions on combining the axial system with ifttt.
How do you trigger an event in Axial Control with the "make channel"? It seems like it needs to be listening on a URL for that to work

This would help out those that are not programming savy as the IFTTT is a simplistic way to program the objects.

I to would love to see Axial Control work with IFTTT. Currently using a Wemo light switch to activate an Arlo camera through IFTTT. It'll be more convenient if it'll work straight with Axial Control.

I just added a Harmony Home Hub to my home network, and learned about IFTTT in the process. I think this would be a great way to further integrate InControl with Alexa.
Quite frankly it is very tedious to say "Alexa ask InControl to activate the lights out scene" when using IFTTT you can say Alexa trigger lights out.
This would be a great way to extend the capabilities of InControl with connectivity to all other triggers and actions available through IFTTT.
