There are a number of new IFTTT Services in the past two months that you should probably know about. If they don’t appeal to you, at least you can see what is possible with IFTTT and the creation of smart applets. Here are a number of new IFTTT services as of May 5, 2021.
B9.com.br (Brainstorm9) IFTTT Service
Brainstorm9 or B9.com.br is the “authoritative voice on creativity and innovation.” If you’re looking for writing that focuses on what’s coming out next in culture and technology you can look here. IFTTT has created a new service that allows you to save your B9 content into other services like Pocket. BR9 has set up some initial IFTTT services like:
- Telling you when a new B9 podcast episode is available.
- Get a digest of the weekly B9 podcast sent to you every Saturday at 7 am,
- Save 9all B9 posts in the Culture category to your iOS Reading List.
As of now, there are only Triggers that you can set with the above conditions. You can check them out here: https://ifttt.com/brainstorm9
#Epicjobs on IFTTT
If you’re looking for your next job in design, product, UX, UI, Engineering, and Project Management, you might want to check out #epicjobs (Job). IFTTT has created a new #epicjobs service to help to notify you of the next job posting that comes out. As of now, IFTTT has created its own EpicJobs Applet to do just that: https://ifttt.com/epicjobs.
ComEd Service on IFTTT
Commonwealth Edison (ComEd) Company powers most of the state of Illinois. They have teamed up with IFTTT to provide users the ability to automate their ‘energy lifestyle.’ You could also change the temperature in your home by connecting the IFTTT ComEd service with other IFTTT services like Ecobee, Philips Hue, and Honeywell. You can get emails, change the thermostat when the electricity prices are high, or resume your temperature scene when the ‘carbon index’ goes back down.

Xtactor IFTTT Service
If you have an Xtactor wristband, you can also make some interesting IFTTT Applets. IFTTT has created a few applets for Xtactor wristband users:
- Skip tracks on Spotify with your Xtactor wristband,
- See Google Calendar events reminders on your Xtactor wristband,
- You can control your Philips Hue lights with the Xtactor wristband, or
- Get a rain warning from Weather Underground on your Xtactor wristband.
The Xtactor wristband will notify you by vibration. You can see more information about the Xtactor IFTTT service here: https://ifttt.com/xtactor
SunriseSunset.org on IFTTT
SunriseSunset.org provides the nautical, civil, and astronomical twilights based on location. IFTTT has already created an Applet that parks your Husqvarna Automower automatically overnight based on the information provided by SunriseSunset.org.
