Can Trigger IFTTT on iPhone, not iPad



  • I manage a bar. I’d like to attach a flic behind the bar that will notify me when the bartenders need me.

    I’m using IFTTT

    This works great on my phone. I can make it text me (practically instantaneous...calling tool minutes) or post a message to Slack, which I use for work and am always monitoring anyways.

    Problem is, the bar is big - I often travel far enough from the flic to lose Bluetooth connection. Plus, I’d like the bartenders to use it even if I’m not there.

    A Contact-the-Manager button.

    We have iPads behind the bar, so I attached the flic to an iPad, set it all up...but it doesn’t work. I’ve tried several recipes, different services - no dice.

    The iPad dings when I click the flic - it’s attached and receiving the input. It’s not communicating to IFTTT.

    Any ideas would be super appreciated. I feel like if I can get this set up, will be IMMENSELY helpful to me and others!

    @matt-0 Not sure if you already did this, but you need to assign the IFTTT action to the Flic in the Flic app so the app actually sends the events to the cloud.
