New for Netvibes Potions: Google Drive and Netatmo Thermostat

Today we’ve added two new ingredients so you can do even more with Netvibes Potions. You can now remotely control your Netatmo Thermostat and upload files to Google Drive automatically, in response to custom triggers or events. Let’s see how the new Potion ingredients work.

With Potions, you can be a wizard of the Internet of Things by controlling automatic interactions from your dashboard. Achieve more in your business by automating actions (for example, When website traffic increases for 5 days in a row, then email the team). Or take control of your personal life by automating apps and smart devices (e.g., When I post a photo on Instagram, then automatically share the picture on Facebook and Tumblr).

To create your own Potion, simply mix-and-match the Trigger(s) and Action(s) you want to take place. Potions are fully customizable, and the possibilities are endless! (Learn more about using Potions in our documentation).

Here are some Potions you can activate today using the new ingredients:

Netvibes’ award-winning Dashboard of Things makes it simple for anyone to automate interactions between devices, apps, events and data. You create a custom Potion by picking the Trigger(s) and Action(s) you want to take place–e.g., If X and Y happen, then do Z.

Consumers can take control of their digital lives with Potions like:

  • Smart smoke detector: When my Nest Protect detects smoke in my home: If the date is Aug. 13-20 (while I’m on vacation), then text my neighbor. Otherwise, text me.
  • Reading list: When a new article is published with “iPhone 8” in the title, then share the link on Facebook and add the article to Pocket so I can read it later.

Companies can automate their business logic to respond immediately with Potions like:
