Integration with Homey (athom.com) for home automation purposes.
Homey is an awesome new home automation controller with an insane amount of supported protocols (z-wave, zigbee, wifi, IR, etc etc) which could benefit from integration with a device like this.
This is how you can get Flic buttons to work with Homey using HTTP request.
So I use the app HTTP request flow cards.
I then use that in a flow to trigger my needed action.
Then in the flic app I have made the button make a HTTP request (Its called Internet request in the app) using the following format (test is the parameter that you can change and that should match the value in the flow setup):
GET should be selected.
URL: http://IP-address of your Homey/api/app/com.internet/whitelist/test
App in Homey:
How long does an item stay under review?
Edit: the first sentance should read: ...the reason I bought a Homey...
No, I haven't, because the I bought a Homey was to not need buy other hubs for my smart devices.
It is like back in the day, when Europe did not force USB adapters for every phone. Every phone company also sold you their own separate unique adapter.
Homey is one hub that could talk to everything. And that is second-best to every smart device is able to hook up to any hub.
I do not want to buy a separate hub.
I read this in the Homey forum "You can try the Homey HTTP App and send GET to Homey from Flic Hub".
Has anyone here tried?

Please reply, if the Flic Hub will integrate with Homey
Seems to me this project has ended since there is no activity for over a year.
Maybe the Flic Hub will give us some possibilities; it's released in January 2018.
Someone has already started an attempt to implement the flic here https://github.com/mruiter/com.flic.io
Maybe someone can help with the implementation?
Hi Guys @ Flic is there any progress on the Homey integration? It would be nice to know if this is in the planning.
Ofcourse we want Flic and Flic Hub to be integrated in Homey!! What an awesome way to be able to place those small battery controlled buttons anywhere and let them controll whatever we want in Homey! Superfunction!
would love it if this works
And flic, did you guys already got of youre ass and contacted emile @ athom for integration.
Until its supported on Homey youre button is rather useless overhead :)
Do we really need Shortcutlabs / Flic.io for this idea or is it already possible to build a Homey app that captures the button presses once Bluetooth is enabled on Homey?
Homey and Flic, the ideal combination for Home Automation

I will look into this next week and see what I can do!

Yes pls, one of the reasons why I ordered the flic is because of Homey
Just bought my first 4 flic's and Homey is coming soon. I would love to integrate these 2 great projects!
