How to use Mi band to control your bedroom light (or automate anything!!) using IFTTT webhook


See how I switch off my bedroom light (wipro smart bulb) with my Mi band 4..

You can do this too!!

First, install Notify and Fitness for Miband from Google play store

Normally you have to use N&F along with the official Mi Fit app
But you can use it as a standalone app by a simple trick (the instructions for which are provided in the Notify and Fitness app). It involves getting the Mi band authorisation key by installing a modded version of the official app.  Details can be read at https://www.freemyband.com/ in the Miband section.

Then create an IFTTT web hook for Notify and Fitness. See this video to know how.






IMPORTANT NOTE: This was a demo video. In the 'then that' part, you can add the action  to switch on/off your smart device or anything else which can be automated using IFTTT.

To get the webhook key, follow these steps



Now go to the 'buttons' section of Notify and Fitness and assign the webhook to any button you like




PS: Also remember to enable smart button actions by switching on the following tab (shown in red)





That's it. This is just one possibility. You can imagine thousands of different possibilities using this method. Enjoy!!
