Build an "if this then that" system, or extend your IFTTT API for more features.

This would be a system of a bunch of triggers and just as many actions.

example 1: "if the speed exceeds 75 mph, send a text to 555-555-5555"
example 2: "if the doors lock with the headlights on, send me a push notification"
example 3: "if the gas tank level reaches below 10%, send a text to 555-555-5555"
example 4: "if the gas level reaches 100%, log it to my google spreadsheet"

Obviously there would be hundreds of different trigger/action combinations.

Great ideas - I've added these to our list of future IFTTT triggers and ingredients.

Hello there, docwisdom. This idea was recently discussed, and we've changed the status to planned! Here are a few specific updates on each of the examples that you provided:

1. Right now, there aren't any triggers based around speeding, but it's definitely possible to send a text message. Take this recipe for example that will text your significant other when you leave work.
2. Unfortunately, the OBD port doesn't provide data about door locks so this recipe isn't possible.
3. & 4. We're planning to add gas level support to IFTTT in a future update. Stay tuned!
