simple push button for smart devices

by JMW on ‎02-02-2017 02:26 PM

I was wondering if you knew of or could possibly make something that I can turnb on or off the smart devices without getting my phone. Similar to the FLIC Smart button (or get compatible with them). 

 

Example: I have a ceiling fan that only has one switch to control it so I must pull the chains to turn of lights if I want to leave the fan on. I put in a smart bulb so I can control it without the chain.A small button I could put on the wall by my door or on my dresser that I can just press to turn on or off the bulb without grabbing my phone or cutting power to the bulb by pulling the chain would really up the accessability.

 

I am sure there would also be many more uses as well. Check out the FLIC button, seems very interesting.

You could install a Wemo switch for that function - either directly or using the long press.  If you can do simple electronics you could do it if for a couple of bucks:  https://sites.google.com/site/mppsuite/esp2866
