WordPress bloggers or users that would like to be notified when users make social interactions with their website might be interested in a new Internet of Things light which has been created by Giulio Pons based in Milan Italy.
The aptly named WPLight allows you to receive notifications via links when something is triggered on your website by a visitor. Watch the video below to learn more about the triggers that can be set up and also the construction of the IoT light which comes complete with its own companion application.
Suppose you have a blog, you can make your WPLight blink when you have some comments to approve. Another scenario: if you have an eCommerce, you can make it blink when you have new orders. If you have a magazine with many authors, you can make it blink when there are new articles waiting for approval. If you want your site always up to date you can make it blink when there are updates to install. And so on… There are a lot of possibilities for this nice Internet of Things device.
Yes, the WP at the beginning of WPLight means WordPress. Since most of web developers use WordPress CMS to build sites, we created a plugin to connect the lamp to WordPress and make it blink on many predefined rules (keep reading to see the rules), so you don’t need to write a line of code.
We’ll make available also the documentation to let every developer talk with our WPLight. So you will be able to create your own script to turn on the WPLight. If you’re a developer, help us to fund the project! You could make it blink for new incoming emails, or if a site is down, or whatever you want!
