How to add delay before an action?



  • Hello,

    Is there a way to add a delay before (or after or between) actions?

    Use case:

    • I have an old Sonos Play 5 in bedroom that runs hot when idle.
    • So I have it behind a Meross Smart Plug.
    • I can turn the Meross Plug on via a Flic Button, but it takes some time for the speaker to be on-line.
    • So now I need to use two separate actions to play music in bedroom. Click to turn Plug on. Stand next to the button and wait until speaker is on-line. Finally double-click to start playback.
    • So I would want to do the above with one action sequence:
      • Click the button (containing the following sequence):
        • Turn on Meross Plug via IFTTT
        • Wait for 45 sec
        • Start playback on speaker via Sonos

    PS.
    Thanks for the Mac app! This is a great extension and has huge potential but has limited range among customers! And I am not sure about others, but I do not have my iMac or Mac Mini running 24/7.

    PPS.
    In the future Windows and specially Linux (e.g. Raspberry Pi) integration would be even better...
    I do have Windows and Linux computers running 24/7.
    My Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ Weather Station could easily handle Flic control on the side. It already has all needed connectivity and ample amount of power.



  • Nice and agreeing.
    Voted for this idea in the idea board of flic:

    Just five a vote there and I hope someone will hear :) :)

    Hi Toni
    I’m not sure how to do what you trying to do.
    However I’d like to know how you managed to get Flic to turn on your Meross Smart Switch?
    I just purchased my Flic2 buttons and have easily setup Lifx & Sonos, but can’t find the Meross integration.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Cheers,
    Ollie
