Identify one flic2 button from another
I have 6 Flic2 buttons and the hub. They all look identical and I'm considering making some movable. Any way to press a Flic and identify which button it is other than waiting to see what action get performed? Some of my buttons fire the same tasks.
Would be nice if the app had a log or if there was some visual feedback in the apps UI when a given button is pressed but I have not found this.
RE: Clear time delayed actions
@Emil sure. So the button disarms my blink camera via IFTTT. I press it if I want to walk out my front door so the camera is not alerting needlessly.
If I subsequently leave the property, the camera auto re-arms when I break a geo fence.
However, if I come back in, I need a way or re-arming the camera (without having to remember to press the button), and that is where the delayed task in Flic comes in.
Now, imagine I leave the house, disarm the camera, then I decide I want to spend longer than 5 mins on the drive in range of the cameras motion detection. I effectively want to restart the timer.
I have long press set to disarm the camera for an hour, but if I have disarmed for 5 mins initially, I need a way of later choosing to extend this. Just pressing the button again within the initial 5 mins will not achieve this as the delayed task will fire.
I am reluctant to shift to always disarming for an hour as this will lead to regular periods when I'm in that the camera is disarmed. Currently living in a big house and the camera is basically the doorbell as well as a security camera.
Current plan is to look at removing the time delayed task all together, and instead fire a webhook request that sits on a queue or another delay mechanism in AWS. Then I hope to find a way to purge the queue if I press the button again, and fire a new webhook with it's own delay. Only issue is I'm new to AWS and this seems like a lot of effort for something Flic could handle for me. Also not 100% sure what I want to achieve in AWS is possible.
Clear time delayed actions
I have flic 2 buttons and hub. I have a button configured to perform an action, then a second action after a 5 minute delay.
However, if I press the button a second time, I want it to forget the delayed action and start fresh.
Is this possible? Ideally I'd like to clear pending delayed actions as the first action every time I press the button
