Homeowners interested in upping their connected home game can now turn to GE's latest additions to the If This Then That (IFTTT) platform. The new offerings double GE's IFTTT presence from three channels to six, and make GE the first appliance manufacturer to have its entire suite on the platform. The platform works with a variety of mobile apps as ingredients to let users create "recipes" of if-then functions within apps or with other Internet of Things devices, such as smart thermostats or lighting. For example, a user could create a recipe that says, "if I turn on the wall oven, then turn on the air conditioner," or "if there's 10 minutes left on the drying cycle, then blink my living room lights." GE's IFTTT-enabled appliances include washer, dryer, dishwasher, cooking, refrigeration, and water heating. The IFTTT app is free; appliance prices will vary. geappliances.com/ge/connected-appliances
