I would like it so it would auto kick on when leaving an area. I have a NFC tag for it now.

It would be great to get a traffic alert in advance of leaving for work, for example, if Waze could check for traffic 30 minutes before I usually leave to warn if there is any unusual traffic on the route. This could come as a Waze notification or through IFTTT.

+1

Uses:

- Travel logs to different locations
- Mileage tracker for taxes.
- Notify Home Automation system (HomeSeer) when you'll arrive home and adjust temperature, speak voice commands, activate lights, etc.
- When leaving, notify you if the door isn't locked, lights are on, etc.
- Send notifications to other users via other methods (E-mail, SMS, Notifications, etc.)

- etc.

IFTTT and Waze

Postby Epco » Sun Mar 23, 2014 9:41 am

Hi,

Wouldn't it be a wonderful addition to have Waze connected to IFTTT https://www.ifttt.com so for example your trips could be added to a Google spreadsheet, your home Philips Hue lights turn on when arriving at home etc.

I have used IFTTT for some great connections between online services and Waze would make a perfect addition in my opinion.

Please let me know your thoughts.

regards,

You all should look into Tasker (for Android). (Edited to add: like IFTTT, it can be set up to respond to various stimuli, like the phone's orientation, etc.)

I use it to start Waze automatically when I put my phone in the car dock. It also turns off WiFi because my phone tries to connect to every Xfinity wifi router as I drive around town, confusing Waze to no end). It automatically turns Wifi back on when I take it out of the dock. Unfortunately, it cannot shut down Waze.

Nee, niet mogelijk en dat zal het in de toekomst ook (bijna zeker) niet zijn.

I've got to say that, as a huge fan of both Waze and IFTTT, I agree. Making Waze work with IFTTT would be fantastic.

I have been thinking the exact same thing - if you could set a time you need to be somewhere (could also work with Waze's built-in Calendar integration) and get a notification when you are in danger of being late (based on current traffic)

A simpler execution could be to set an alert for major traffic events along a given route, since commute times are generally consistent.

I would also love to see IFTTT integrated with Waze, it could include triggering events when navigation is started / finished (and passing start address, finish address) and so on.

An Action could be to start navigation / navigate to a specific address.
