yeah I totally agree... its essential to offer SDK integration for the twist (rotation event) as that was the primary and only reason why i supported the development of it. The device is pretty pointless if all you can do with the SDK is click. i Would love MQTT with the rotation event as well (in a perfect world) but will settle for SDK. Thank you flicteam for the (yet).... I wait in anticipation to be able to use the flic twist to its full potential in my own custom integrations.
Flicteam: Do you have a beta release of your firmware for the hub, if so how does one contact you receive it.
@Emil Thank you. I already set up the other Twist to control the lights with Alexa, but cannot use it to control the volume, unfortunately.
If I would use a Sonos speaker, connected to Alexa, could I then use
the Twist Push Button to start playing something (for example TuneIn) via Alexa (what I already have now)
then the Twist Wheel to control the volume with the connected Sonos?
@Emil If you would simply update the SDK to support all flic twist features and operations, we could sort things out ourselves, one way or another. All of the functionality exists in the Hub LR for other integrations (albeit, extremely few, but it is still there), so it doesn't seem like you can't, it just seems like it won't. It was said Matter is the priority. Well, Matter seems to be going nowhere, so can we please at least get the functionality we were promised and paid for in the meantime? I should not have to beg to get what I paid for.
Why will no one give any sort of update, or tell us what is going on? That is the very least you could do. It is incredibly frustrating.
There are many companies out there who have delays, timeline adjustments, whatever else.
In this situation, there are two types of companies. Good companies, and bad ones.
What to the good companies do? They offer transparency, they give updates, they try and work out solutions.
What do the bad companies do? They give useless vague information or say nothing, and give excuses.
I have yet to hear any useful updates, or solutions. Yes, Matter took/is taking longer than you expected for whatever reasons. Ok, so that means 'oh well, too bad' for everyone? I don't understand why you can't just update the SDK. Why don't I understand? Because no one has told us why or why not. If you can't do it, say so. If you can do it, say why you won't.
@gregorysinclair Completely agree with you on this. Hopefully @Emil can prioritise this as a fix to give some limited functionality to the two twists I finally received, which currently have zero utility in my HomeKit automated home.
No one expects, or probably even really cares about Matter support right now, considering there is basically nothing to use it with yet. Eventually? Yes, as it was listed as something that would be supported in the future.
What we do care about is the functionality we were promised of the product we bought. Whoever decided and approved it was a good idea to push Matter's priority ahead of a product you literally just launched, that everyone has in hand and cannot use as promised, needs to have their position re-evaluated at the company. I bought this based on the promised functionality and open access for development, which was not delivered. Yet, of course, the money came out of my bank account.
We want what we were promised. The functionality that was listed when the product was showcased on Kickstarter. That is the priority list. You have had multiple years to prepare for this. The functionality obviously exists, you have other items in the app using it. So please, stop with the empty and vague statements, and just deliver what we paid for. This is getting more and more frustrating each day that goes by without any updates, road map, timeline, etc, as I have all this stuff sitting on my desk that is useless.
