How to integrate Fingbox with home hubs (Home Assistant, Homebridge, openHAB) via IFTTT
A recent review article was posted about Fingbox which explains how you can set-up an integration with home automation systems like Home Assistant, Homebridge or openHab by leveraging our existing integration with the IFTTT service, to bridge the systems.
You can use this integration for home occupancy tracking; i.e. when people come and go from your home and all the standard Fingbox notifications; device online/offline and security alerts for hacking attempts (Evil Twin Access points, Man in the Middle attacks) etc.
To integrate Fingbox with your Home Hub, you need to use the IFTTT service as a bridge between your Fingbox and Home Assistant. The Home Assistant accepts IFTTT webhooks as triggers.
You can then set-up on your Home Assistant, to use the service "ifttt_webhook_received" as triggers for your Home Assistant Automations. Learn more about Home Assistant Automations. (translated from Italian) and get started with Fingbox on IFTTT.
Because of this success, we believe, that other hubs that can manage incoming IFTTT webhooks can benefit from this same integration.
Does anyone want to test this out with their Home Assistant or other Home Hub? Would you be able to report your findings in a discussion? We’d love to see how you get on and promote that content!Read the original article in Italian.
