Building A Slack Doorbell Will Integrate Three Apps
Software you will use:
Set up a new channel in Slack called “doorbell”.
If you don’t have Slack, you have to set it up first. To set up a channel, you can press the “+” next to channels and create it.
Get the “Do IFTTT” App from the App Store
After creating an Account, you have to add a new “recipe”. For the channel you should choose “Slack”.
Customize Recipe: We named it “Doorbell”.
Select the Slack Channel (doorbell-channel in this case) and the message can be as simple as “ringing the door”.
After creating the recipe, save it and you should see a huge “doorbell” with a slack icon.
That’s it! Press and check your slack channel!
Since the “Do Button” runs off of IFTTT, you’ll see the message appear something like this in Slack:
Awesome! Once you see this notification popping up on your mobile, you can unlock the door from your meeting room, from the kitchen or wherever you are in the office without missing anything by clicking the remote unlock button from your PC.
