    Tuya is the backend, but different companies are able to request a reskinned app (using hte Tuya backend) to control their devices. There dozens of apps all using the Tuya backend. Each company also has to pay for IFTTT (not Tuya) if they want it. SmartLife decided to stop, but Brilliant Smart is continuing support. Brilliant is an Australian company and by law they aren't able to discontinue the service as it was advertised as a part of the item. So we may be ok (for a time).

    This is my backup https://community.apilio.com/t/we-are-working-on-enabling-smart-life-tuya-through-apilio/775
    Basically you will be able to go Flic > IFTTT > Apilio > Smartlife

    Honestly, we may be more are risk of Flic pulling IFTTT support like Smartlife did. Sounds like IFTTT is dramatically raising their costs which is why many companies are starting to pull back from it.

    Oh yes - critical now with the IFTTT/Smartlife breakup
    Does anyone know a workaround?

    You can install an Android app called Brilliant Smart and add the plugs there. Brilliant Smart has an IFTTT channel that you can call from the Flic Hub. So Flic Hub > IFTTT > Brilliant Smart.

    This used to work with the SmartLife app but May 2020 SmartLife is discontinuing IFTTT service.

    FYI - there is a couple second delay

    The triggercmd.com solution works for my specific use case, but really a Windows app would be ideal for real-time uses. Triggercmd works great for me, but it's a 1 sec response since it is going out to the Internet and back to trigger the action. In my case, that it close enough. But real-time would be better.

    The best solution I've found for this is https://www.triggercmd.com/en/
    There is a PC app you install and the service gives you urls that you can call to trigger a PC action. In the Flic app you use an Internet Request action. Works great - usually within a second. Let me know if you need more info. You can even trigger the events via anything that can call a URL - android app, Google Home, etc

    Google Voice action doesn't work if the screen is off (at least on my phone)
