Clearly manually recording each time you pull up to a place with Nomie isn't ideal. Instead, we're going to use a little IFTTT magic, and automatically track when we arrive at a specific location by posting the data to the Nomie API.
Step 1. Install / Setup Required tools (IFTTT, Nomie, Nomie API)
- Nomie Pro on iOS or Android - FREE.
- IFTTT Account and the IFTTT iOS or Android App - FREE
- Nomie Account with an active API Subscription $4.99 p/year
Step 2. Create a new IFTTT Applet
Once you've created and logged in to your IFTTT account, visit your Applets page, and press "New Applet".
Step 3. Add the Location Applet
Search for "Location", and select the Location applet.
Step 4. Pick "You enter an Area"
We want our trigger to be fired each time we arrive at this location, so select the "You Enter an Area" trigger. Next, search for the target location.
Step 5. Setup the "That"!
Next we need to setup the action for when the trigger is fired. We will be using IFTTT's Maker Applet that allows requests to other online services like the Nomie API.
Search for, and select, the Maker Applet
Step 6. "Make a web request" to the Nomie API
Select the "Make a Web Request" action, and provide the URL as described below.
The URL input will need to be to the Nomie API. Make sure to replace
YOUR-API-KEY with your actual API Key.
For example, if you have a tracker labeled "Mom and Dads", your URL would look like:
https://api.nomie.io/v2/push/YOUR-API-KEY/action=track/label=Mom and Dads
When you're finished hit save.
That's it! Set it and forget it.
Next time you arrive at this location IFTTT will fire off the request to the Nomie API. The Nomie API will then store this data until the next time you open Nomie, which will then save the event locally.
