Custom Email Generation & 3rd Party System Activations [Show All]

A new action has been added to the Connect ONE Task Rules.  Now a custom email can be delivered as a part of the task activation commands.  The email can be customized with the from address, to address, subject, and body of the email.  

This can be used to activate 3rd party systems.  For instance, the 3rd party service IFTTT (If This Then That) allows you to send an email to it with a custom #hashtag in the subject.  This email can activate other services the customer may have, such as August locks, Hue lights, WeMo smart plugs, etc.  

So, now a Connect ONE Task Rule can activate 3rd party systems which don’t currently have a direct Connect ONE integration but the customer may have installed in their home or business.
