You would need two automatic accounts (one for each car) and two IFTTT accounts to make that work.

Sure but this seems like a simple software fix on automatics part to allow you to choose the car.

It might seem like a simple fix, but knowing a thing or two about programming I can assure you it is not. It probably involves rebuilding their IFTTT interface from the ground up.

Hi Bryan –

Thanks for sharing your idea, and welcome to the Automatic community!

What you're describing has actually been a popular request lately, and while we don't have any immediate plans to implement this, we're still considering it for a future update. I'm going to hold on to your info and I'll be sure to let you know if anything changes. For now, I'm going to mark your idea as "under consideration".

Please keep all the amazing feedback coming, we love to hear your thoughts! :)

Hi any update on this? It’s really useful to be able to distinguish between vehicles for IFTT

Hi Eric,

Unfortunately there isn't any update for this since the IFTTT events are based on the account, not the vehicle. That is how the integration was built, so there's no easy way to change it. I wish I had better news!
