Zapier is a service that allows the user to integrate the web applications they use through creating Zaps. A Zap is an automated task that can run repeatedly and it consists of a collection of triggers and/or filters and actions. The user decides on what action will be set in motion when a trigger is set off. For more information visit Zapier.com.
An example of a Zap:
- when motion is detected on my Point, I want to get an email.
- when loud noise is detected on my Point, I want my lights to light up.
