 Why SIGNL4

Flic buttons, provide a quick and simple possibility to trigger any kind of action at a push of a button. The button connects to the Flic hub or to an android phone via low-energy Bluetooth.

Configure your Actions in the Flic App

Now you can configure what shall happen if someone presses (or long-click, or double-click) the Flic button.

      

In the Flic app, select Internet Request and then choose HTTP Post.

As URL you enter your SIGNL4 REST API URL including the team secret.

The Body is any JSON you would like to pass as alert notification.

And the Content Type is application-json (application/json).

This is it.

Alert Optimization

SIGNL4 can further increase the visibility of alerts through its Signals and Services section.  Augmenting the color and icon of alerts will provide more relevant information at a glance without having to open the alert.

Change Alert Color and Override Title + Text 

Override text, colors and titles are triggered by keywords set within the mobile app.
