Domino's and IFTTT team up to make people lazier, one pizza at a time

dominos ford driverless pizza delivery
Domino’s and IFTTT (If This Then That) have partnered up to create a lazy solution for couch potatoes and pizza lovers alike. The pizza delivery giant already lets you track your pizza as it goes from creation to the oven to your door. Domino’s integrated its pizza tracker with IFTTT, and by connecting the platform to your smart home, you can get all ready for your pizza dinner without even getting up off of the couch.

For instance, if you live on a dark street or the pizza man has a tough time finding your house, the system can turn on your porch lights automatically, so the pizza man isn’t stuck looking for your house in the dark.

Don’t want to drench the pizza man when he arrives? No worries. You can make it so your Rachio Smart sprinkler system automatically turns off when your order is out for delivery. Having neighbors over for pizza? You can even change the color of your Hue lights when your order is in the oven, so your friends next door know the pizza is coming soon. You can also set the system to email certain friends and family when your pie is in the oven.

Domino’s and IFTTT have integrated other features, too, like the ability to play a song from your Android phone when your order is in the oven; or, the option to turn on your Harmony TV when the Domino’s crew begins preparing your order. You can also clean your house before your guests arrive without getting up — the system can set your Samsung robot vacuum to start cleaning your house when the Domino’s crew starts making your ‘za.

While Domino’s and IFTTT may be out for publicity, users can now get ready for a pizza party — with entertainment, a clean house, and food — without doing any work.

Google Home adds new camera features and support for Nest Cam Outdoor
The interface on Google Home allowing you to capture custom clips.

Google Home is one of the best smart home platforms, and it's just gotten more exciting with the rollout of new camera features and support for the Nest Cam Outdoor. These updates are currently limited to Public Preview users, though we expect to see them launched to all users soon.

One of the biggest additions is support for the first-generation Nest Cam Outdoor. Google will be rolling out eligibility to users over the next few weeks -- so if you're a Public Preview user and don't have access right away, you may have to wait a bit longer. Once the feature has been pushed to your camera, you can use it like you would any other device in Google Home. This includes having access to an updated camera history interface.

Best portable power station deals: Bluetti, EcoFlow, and more
Bluetti AC300 portable power station

Maybe you know already, or maybe you don't, but not all generators are gas-powered. The downside to a gas generator is, besides needing the fuel itself, you can't use them in various configurations. For example, you should never place a gas generator inside. That's super inconvenient in bad weather like the rain or cold. But portable power stations, on the other hand, which utilize electricity, even solar energy, can be placed indoors. They're safe because they're emission-free. They can also replace traditional gas generators to provide backup power for your home, or if you're living off-grid. Plus, it's all in the name. They're portable so you can use them virtually anywhere, like when you're camping, on outdoor adventures, by the pool, in your backyard during a party or barbecue, and much more. They can also be pretty expensive depending on the capacity you need, but deals and discounts go a long way towards making them both more affordable and more accessible. That's precisely why we've gathered up all of the best portable power station deals right here, in one place.
