I wanted to share a video showing how I’ve used Flic 2 buttons to control integration in a dedicated home theater. Hope you like it and it gives folks some ideas for how to use Flic buttons a bit differently. Thanks!

RE: Help me make a home theater automation “magic box remote”
To give an idea of the guitar FX box concept:
Help me make a home theater automation “magic box remote”
Planning to use 3 buttons for basic a/v and lighting commands so anyone in the family can fire our home theater up with one touch. Also, want to make the buttons portable so they can be taken into the theater and be used before, during or after a movie.
I’ll use the glow in the dark stickers for sure, but struggling on what sort of “baton” to stick them to so that all 3 travel together. One idea I had was to buy a low profile powder coated aluminum guitar effects pedal box and stick them to that (something around 4.5”l x 2.5”w x 1.3”h) - sample pic below). I like the look, but wish for something equally sturdy that would fit better in the hand but still lay flat.
I’m going for a clean, sleek finished look. Prefer metal, but plastic is ok. I’d like a black finish so the Flic 2s with glow stickers will be easy to find. Suggestions? Thanks in advance!!
