“If This, Then That”, or IFTTT is a cloud service that uses connections, called applets, to link internet enabled devices (like a TV, door bell, lights, or fire alarm). It can also link devices to online services (like your email account, Facebook, or Twitter). So hearing aids can now do some pretty useful and fun things you may never have imagined.
- Your hearing aids can tell you when you get an email or when the door bell rings.
- A mom can get an alarm on her phone when her daughter’s hearing aid batteries go low.
- Your coffee maker can start when you close the battery doors on you hearing aids each morning.
- You can hear a live music concert through your hearing aids.
Watch this video to see what I mean.
