Flic 2 + hub + IFTTT

  • Not sure if I’m doing anything wrong, have the new Flic 2 buttons and a hub. Trying to get integration with IFTTT to work.

    Downloaded the IFTTT app and wanted to try something simple as Notification on the phone when pressing the Flic button. I’ve setup the IFTTT so when pressing the Flic button the IFTTT Notification should popup, but nothing happens when I press the button. Tried the Flic IFTTT SMS Service as well, nothing.

    The Check now-button in IFTTT doesn’t do anything either.
    I’m using iOS and have button added to the hub in Flic and it can do actions like start Sonos or turn on/off lights for IKEA Tradfri so the button itself works.

  • @mattias-0 Why can't I use any of the flic/Wyze applets already posted. I have flic2 so I guess that's my answer but why can't your interface detect which type of flic is being pushed? I assume there must be a difference but I don't see anything to help me. What I'm trying to do is simply turn on/off a Wyze smart plug. When I try to create this I add "flic" from your menu of stuff to the "if". For the "this/then" part I add the "Turn on Wyze plug". Now I get asked to select "Options" NADA can't do anything. Tried using a Tagged flic whatever that means, doesn't ask for any options and I get "Finish". I click that and I get to title my applet which I did. Now I get "Can't create Applet, try again later". What the hell is going on? I should not have to worry about whether I have a flic or a flic 2 YOUR interface should be able to detect and take care of that, why should I? If you want your stuff to make it in this market you need to SIMPLIFY things. I have 38 years of programming experience. I could dig into this and probably figure it out, is that what you want the average Joe off the street with no programming experience to do? YOU WANT THIS TO BE EASY FOR ANYBODY, OTHERWISE YOU WILL NOT MAKE IT!

  • @lucky sorry for late reply! No I did not solve this, I don’t understand what I need to do on the Flic button to get it to work.

    There’s only Tags that can be added, don’t know what that means 😭

  • Hi was this ever resolved? I'm having the same issue.

  • @Emil hmm, how do I do that?
    Take Notifications as an example. I add the “Get notification when a Flic is pushed” in IFTTT, set the button by name and Click Type.

    What do I do in Flic then? If I add IFTTT to the button, all I can set in the app is Tags, how do they work?

    Have you assigned the IFTTT action for the specific Flic in the Flic app?
