BMW Labs has just opened its doors to enable people to test upcoming innovations. First on its list is an integration with IFTTT that lets car owners customize what their ride can do using ‘recipes’ from the Web platform.

Recipes created so far include one using Garageio to open your garage as you arrive, another for switching your Philips Hue lights on when you’re nearby, plus a number of location-based messaging services for your kids, housemates or finding your car in the parking lot.

F**k it, we'll do it live!

Our biggest ever edition of TNW Conference is fast approaching! Join 10,000 tech leaders this May in Amsterdam.

With almost 270 IFTTT channels to choose from, it’s really up to your imagination how you integrate services you already use into the in-car system.

If you own a BMW with the company’s in-dash Control Display system, you can register online to get started with IFTTT integration.

The service has been beta tested in the US, France, Spain, Germany and Australia, and is currently available in English.
