This is a plugin for Flic Buttons. There is an existing plugin (which I have never tried), It didn’t suit my needs, so I created a new one.
- Support for multiple remote daemons
- FlicScanWizard utility device to discover and pair flic buttons
- Custom predicate provider
I have only tested this plugin with remote daemon connections to multiple WiFi-connected pi zero Ws. Using this setup, there is near instantaneous notification of events. However, i have the pimatic-app running on a core i5 machine with wired ethernet. YMMV.
In my experience, using cheap BLE dongles is a nightmare. They can sometimes be difficult to install and setup properly. And even once its successfully paired, the connection can be quite unstable. I highly recommend using a pi zero w ($10 us). I have found the BLE range is quite good, and the connection is highly stable. Plus its an rPi, so it can be used for other stuff as well.
