Hi, smarthome enthusiast here. I am still loving my Sisyphus coffee table and have been enjoying tinkering with ways to remotely control it. I prefer physical buttons over a touchscreen or smartphone app. I currently have Flic buttons working well for basic commands (play / pause / sleep / wake / dim / bright.)
I was wondering if I could set up something similar for the excellent LaMetric Time display? It has buttons on top for control, and the display could also show the name of the Sisyphus track currently being drawn. Is this something IFTTT could help with?
Incidentally, LaMetric was my *second* favorite crowdfunding campaign a few years back. 😉
I'm interested in any other means to control the Sisyphus table, beyond its app or webpage. I'm dreaming of a day I can one day handle it via voice commands to Alexa, Siri, OK Google, Cortana, Samantha or whoever.
You are not alone! After a few people wrote about their success connecting a Flic button, I tried it, and though it was cool to be abe to get it to work, I could see its limitations. Voice command is definitely the way to go IMO. We are definitely planning to devote significant developer time on this, and IFTTT is likely the place we'll start. Our hope is to get our API to a level documentation where the community can start experimenting soon.
