    could anyone write a howto on installing and getting this to work on a pi? specifically with http request for all three button modes, and with the use of headers for basic http auth

    Stefan try this

    in FLIC app under your chose Hub, select the Internet Request"Hub Action"

    add your URL which for me was http://192.168.1.161/JSON?Request=controldevicebylabel&ref=290&label=On to enable a device on my home automation box (HomeSeer)

    stick with GET http method (in my use case)

    under the Headers (Optional), set up basic authentication i.e. type "Authorization" in the Key field of the app

    encode your "user:password" string using base64 (I used base64encode.org for online base64 encoding)

    Prefix the encoded string with "Basic " including a trailing space

    "Basic YWRtaW46YWRtaW4NCg==" is encoded "admin:admin" as an example. Type or paste all of this into the Value field in the FLIC app

    Press the ADD button on the left hand side below the key/value fields. You should then see this header linein a grey field.

    Press SAVE ACTION to ensure all saved away

    And now it should work, it did for me!
