SIGNL4 Integration with Flic Buttons

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. Pairing one or more Flic buttons with SIGNL4 can enhance your daily operations with an extension to your mobile team in the field or on the shop floor.

In our example we use one Flic button to notify a team of service engineers about needed assistance on-site.
