[IFTTT] What can I do with the ASUS router and IFTTT?

What is IFTTT?

IFTTT is a platform that connects apps, services, and devices with [ if this, then that ] statements. These simple conditional statements are called [ Applets ] and it uses specific conditions to perform all kinds of custom tasks for you.


What can I do with the ASUS router and IFTTT?

Connect your ASUS Router to IFTTT and start an automation life with creative applets on your ASUS Router channel. For example:

[If close to dinner time or bed time, then turn off wifi]

[If my daughter comes home, then send me an email, text, or phone call]

[If my wife comes home, then play my favorite song]

[If I am playing a game, then boost the game speed]

  1. Is IFTTT not supported in AP Mode?

  • The IFTTT option is not available when router is in AP mode.
  • When in AP mode, all IP addresses are dispatched from the front router/modem above the router. The router does not have any DHCP function when in AP mode, so it cannot manage the device connected to it. The control manager is in the front router/modem.
