I got daily counters working from flic to google sheets by keeping one sheet that adds a new row with the timestamp a flic button is pressed (via. IFTTT) and another sheet that counts the number of rows on the first sheet that match a given day.
@jeyc Google Play store changed their policies and no longer allows us to send sms messages directly. We tried to get an exception but they rejected our request.
You can build your own Android app though from Android Studio and install it directly on your phone. This can for example listen to an Intent and at that time send an sms. Then use the Send Intent action in our app to call your app to send the sms.
I noticed that a member of the flic team said they were going to start looking at Tuya / Smart Life integration. Is there any update on this? At the moment I am using web requests to home assistant using the tuya v2 integration, but it would be good to have this natively in flic!
@flic-11 We think the bug in apple's Home app might be due to we use a bridge together with an input device. That seems to be a quite uncommon scenario they really haven't tested thoroughly. Most other Homekit products are instead controlled directly.
I made some progress on this issue. I deleted the single press action of the flic button from the HomeKit home app. Then I single pressed the flic button. The "non-existent" HomeKit single press action was triggered and the device was toggled from off to on.
This confirmed my suspicion that the action was running twice. It appears that the HomeKit hub was running both the deleted action and the configured action.
Will Flic work when the Flic app is running in the background or when the app is closed?
Your Flic works together with the Flic app like this:
Flic app is running and is in the foreground: All Flic actions can be triggered.
Flic app is running in the background and the device is unlocked: All Flic actions can be triggered. On iOS, some actions may require you to tap a notification first.
Flic app is running in the background and the device is locked: The huge majority of Flic actions can be triggered. Some actions can be limited by the platform or by the operating system. On iOS, some actions may require you to tap a notification first.
Flic app is closed (you have manually closed the app):
For iOS, Flic actions cannot be triggered.
For Andriod, The huge majority of Flic actions can be triggered. Some actions can be limited by the platform or by the operating system.
