Zapier is an integration available on the Minut Pro Plan. It's a service that allows the user to integrate different web applications with Minut by 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 a high noise event is detected by Minut, I want to get an email.
When motion is detected by Minut, I want my lights to light up.
How do I create a Zap?
First, you need to connect Zapier with your Minut account. You do that from our web app under Integrations.
You'll need to create a Zapier account, this can be done with your work email, Google account, or similar.
Once you get to the screen below, you can start by connecting the applications you wish to use. In the example below, we want to get an email if a high noise event is detected with noise monitoring ON.
Go to My Apps and connect both your Minut account and your Email account.
Once we have the correct connections, we can create our first Zap! The first thing we want to happen is that we recognize when a high noise event is happening in any of our homes. Choose to have action one be with the Minut connection (see below).
Next, we choose the event we want to trigger our Zap on. In this example, we want "Noise Monitoring First Warning".
Once we've decided on an event and an account, we can test to see if the trigger is working. If an event has occurred before, you'll see the data that comes into Zapier.
Next, we decided what should happen once a high noise event occurs. In this case, we want to receive an email letting us know about the event.
Once an email account has been connected, we choose who will receive it, subject, and message. If you want to see the name of the specific homer or device, we can easily add this with the reply. Below you can see we get the specific home for the noise event as "The name of the home the device is installed in.".
Next, we try the connection by sending a test email. If all looks good, we can turn ON our Zap.
Below is an example of the email we've created if we get a high noise event with noise monitoring ON in the specific home 250 Fell St.
We've now created our first Zap. In the view below we can make changes, set a name for the Zap, and turn it on or off.
If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to ping email@example.com.
