Intellithings adds IFTTT and Hubitat support to RoomMe

Israeli-based startup, Intellithings has expanded functionality of its RoomMe True Occupancy Automation system, adding integrated support for IFTTT and Hubitat, as well as the ability to trigger supported system’s pre-configured smart home scenes.

RoomMe True Occupancy Automation is a system based on patented presence technology to identify specific people in a room.

Available now via an update to the RoomMe app, this added support allows compatibility with most smart devices on the market. 

Using the patented Presence Sensing Technology (PST), RoomMe leverages the unique Bluetooth signature of a user’s smartphone or select smartwatch models to identify who the user is, which room they are in and automatically adjust the settings of the room to that person’s specific preferences. 

With new IFTTT support, RoomMe can trigger specific scenes and functions which are enhanced further thanks to the level of personalisation offered. Homeowners can now use IFTTT to create personalised automations which only execute when a specific user enters the room as they are identified by the RoomMe sensor installed on the ceiling.

Designed to be a private and secure system, RoomMe does not rely on an internet connection for presence detection and does not use any biometrics to identify users within the home. It also doesn’t collect or share any data or information, only using the unique Bluetooth signatures to identify users and the room they are in.

As well as the added support of IFTTT, RoomMe is also now compatible with other smart home devices, functioning as an additional layer on many DIY smart home systems and devices. Hubitat is a device that has just been added to the list of compatible systems, including Apple HomeKit, Wink, Logitech, Harmony, Insteon, Sensibo, Philips HUE, LIFX, Ecobee, Sonos, Bose, and hub-connected Z-Wave and Zigbee devices. 

RoomMe is also compatible with professionally installed automation systems including Crestron, Control4, URC, ELAN and RTI.
