Silencing the Noise Around IFTTT Enabled Hearing Aids
"If This Then That" or IFTTT is an cutting-edge third-party service that intelligently automates how devices communicate with each other. It's designed to simplify your life by connecting IFTTT enabled hearing aids to a growing list of other devices. Continue reading to learn more about this state-of-the-art technology.
How Does IFTTT Work?
As a free web-based technology, IFTTT enables you to create strings of simple conditional statements known as "recipes." Recipes are the rules you create to dictate how the connected devices communicate with each other.
An example of a recipe is if someone tags the user on Facebook, then the tagged photo will be added to a particular cloud-based archive in the cloud. Another example is if the IFTTT user comes within a certain perimeter of the connected home, then the lights should come on.
What Are IFTTT Enabled Hearing Aids?
One of the most innovative advancements in hearing aids is the Oticon Opn. It's the first hearing aid in the world that connects to the World Wide Web through IFTTT technology.
Users are able to connect to a vast range of IFTTT-enabled devices that are used in everyday life. The hearing aid connects to domestic lighting systems, door bells, and a myriad of other every day home appliances through recipes.
The Oticon Opn offers users a solution that empowers them to to use their hearing aid to do much more than amplify sounds. This hearing aid places the user in control of a quickly growing number of IFTTT-compatible services and products as they become readily available.
How Do IFTTT Hearing Aids Work?
IFTTT heating aids work by a simple process of "triggers" and "actions." When a condition or "trigger" occurs, you can program the device to perform a specific "action." For instance, if the battery is low, then the hearing aid should decrease the volume.
Currently, the Oticon Opn supports the following triggers: program change, connection lost, connection established, battery low, mute, and volume. It also supports the following actions: decrease volume, increase volume, set a program, and "play text to speech".
