Control Home Lighting with the Parse Webhook

Our Parse webhook lets your application receive inbound email. The common use cases for this tend to be web app related.

In this post, I’ll share how well it also works to control web-enabled hardware. Specifically, I’ll be using inbound email to control home lighting with the Philips Hue light bulbs.

The aim of the day was for Alex Reed (our latest SendGrid European Ambassador) and me to dress up like Santa, and live-stream ourselves creating “The 12 Hacks of Christmas.” Admittedly, we only managed 2 out of the 12 hacks, but we had a lot of fun, came up with some great ideas, and had over 300 viewers tune in to watch us. This was so much fun,
