Domino's Pizza

Domino's Pizza has already enabled people to track the location of their pizza as it comes from the shop to their home. But that's not enough for the company, which has teamed up with IFTTT, to connect the platform to your smart home. Yes, it's a publicity stunt, although it's one that has a couple of useful applications if you're rocking a sufficiently futuristic abode.

One of the applications for the Domino's-branded applets involves turning on your home's porch lights when the delivery person is near. Another is letting the system deactivate your sprinkler system to avoid any pizza-splash incidents that would ruin your evening. Then there's the ability to activate specific Samsung smart vacuums to clean your carpets before your dinner arrives.

If you're already a member of the IFTTT family, all you need to do is head to the IFTTT website and download the Domino's Applets. You can also develop your own recipes so that, say, your house lights change color as the pizza cooks. Or you could set an alert to remind yourself that you'll need to get some exercise in every now and again.
