5. Create a Webhook Action

Create a Webhook Action

Let’s create a Webhook Action with Hackey.

There are a lot of services that have Webhook support. For this guide we will use IFTTT MakerChannel with Hackey as an example.

# Create a Recipe on IFTTT

Let’s create the following recipe “If Hackey’s key switch is turned on, then display a notification message in iOS”.

IFTTT MakerChannel is the personal URL used to receive notifications from outside services.

Sign in to IFTTT and create a MakerChannel.



Apply MakerChannel to the “this” part of the recipe.


Event Name : Enter an “event name” in the box. If the “event name” is a duplicate it will not work correctly.


Apply a service to the “that” part of the recipe. Select iOS notification this time as an example.


Type the keyword “iOS” in the Search field and select IF Notifications.

Paste the URL (IFTTT receiving trigger URL) into the blank URL field. 

“Timing” indicates when the Webhook trigger is sent (the Hackey key switch is in the ON or OFF position*).

*If you’d like the same action for both on and off timing, please create 2 Webhook actions using the same URL. Setting the timing for one as ON and the other as OFF. 

# Download IF iOS application
