Myfox Security Recipes on IFTTT Enable a Seamlessly Integrated Connected Home Experience

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 1, 2015) -  Myfox, a leader in smart home security solutions, today announces a new security Channel on IFTTT, a service that enables consumers to make simple connections between their favorite products and apps. The new Myfox Security Channel connects the Myfox Home Alarm and Myfox Security Camera with thousands of Recipes.
