Orbi to support IFTTT or Webhook on Device Connected
An enormously valuable feature of any router is knowledge of what devices are connected to the router. IFTTT presents a huge opportunity for Orbi to integrate its knowledge of connected devices to hundreds of other cloud and IoT services. Enabling Orbi to trigger when a device is detected on the network, expands Orbi's capability with everything from Security to parental control capabilities. Just look at a device like Fingbox, where its customers are willing to pay $100 for this sort of capability. Engineering costs for supporting IFTTT probably makes it one of the most valuable bang per buck possibilities out there.
Short of full IFTTT integration and an even simpler way of exposing this cloud connected router capability would be to have Orbi support a webhook when a device connects and disconnects.
