Tesco goes Hi-Tech and launches its own channel on IFTTT

Via Tesco Labs –

From today you’ll be able to do some simple actions with Tesco online too.

We’ve created our own channel on IFTTT with two triggers and a single action. You can now trigger any other action on IFTTT if the price of a Tesco product changes or if it goes below a certain price. On the action side you can use any of the triggers to add a specified item into your basket.

To get started you just need to have an IFTTT account and add the Tesco channel. When you set it up you’ll have to sign in to your Tesco Groceries account to prove who you are but then you should be away.

This might sound really complex but its not. Below are some examples. I use IFTTT to tweet when my weather station detects more than 0.2mm of rain per hour. When this happens, it sends a tweet to my Weather Twitter account to state it has started raining.
