Great App to use for Smart Home control e.g. with Homematic. Now being able to use Wifi directly finally avoiding the issue with Samsung Smartphone always returnung 3xx Errors if connected via BT.

Super Widget zur Steuerung ALLER Smarthomegeräte über IFTTT/Webhooks. Und, es ist gar nicht so komplziert, wie es zunächst vielleicht scheint ! Funktioniert einwandfrei. Super Arbeit !!

This is the app I needed! I managed to opening garage from my Garmin Edge while approaching to my house and open door with my Forerunner watch :). Nice and clean icons and flexible configuration. I had some problems with new version with garmin express app but configuration from ConnectIQ forks fine. Beer for you :)

Very good app. Very versatile that can be used with lots of applications/situations. Simple to configure, simple to use, quick usage in the watch. Clean and very powerful. If you have anything to control/to interact, this is the app you need. Thank you!

Good app. Timely to set up. I have replaced phone twice now. Is it possible to implement a backup and restore FX. Thanks

Thanks for your review ! As far as I know, because the settings are stored in the garmin device, you don't have to reconfigure the widget when you change the smartphone. But indeed, it could be usefull when you change the garmin device, I will think about your request.

Unable to send request via http, only https

Developer Reply

It's a GarminConnect limitation due to respect of best practices recommended by Android and IOS. But I recently add the possibility to send directly through WiFi/LTE if you have it on your device. Directly from the device, HTTP is supported.

Great widget! Would it be possible to add POST request vs the default GET?

Yes it's on the roadmap (from too much months), and I'm working on it actually. Take a look in few days ;o).

Work only with https on server, Its not problem on app but firmware in watch requires secure connection on http communication, so ALL apps now requires valid SSL on server to work...

No start button on vivoactive 3 music. The touch screen is Menu and the only one button select activities...

Sorry about that but on the simulator, all seems to be right... (send me an email to [email protected] and I can send you an exemple video). That's strange because some users tell me that all is right for vivoactive 3 (not music, but very close). Keep in mind that : Long touch = menu Physical button = launch Edit on 25/10/2020 : New version today, a tap on screen now launch the action.

Hi, I keep getting 404 Code. Tried the http link (REST API call to my Fibaro system) in my local WLAN with PC Web browser and all works fine from there. I am connected with my cellphone on the same WLAN. What am I doing wrong?

Thank you for this great app ! With the possibility to send resquet direct on a Wifi router it could be amazing.

Thanks for your comment. The function called to send request seems to be the same for wifi and via bt... I tested it, but doesn't seem to work. I will try to check deeper if it's really possible for next release.

I have the VivoActive3 and I noticed other people have commented that there's no way to send the url request. What if it just sends as soon as an action is selected, so there's no extra send button? That would fix the problem. I realize that maybe the button is there so if you accidentally click the wrong thing, you can change it. Maybe you could also make the selections a little larger so it's easier to click on the right one. It would also make it more efficient if it just went straight to device selection instead of to the sort of menu screen.

Great app, got it working with ifttt and opening my garage door after my run. Does it only work over Bluetooth via the mobile phone or can it also send call the api over its wifi connection ?

No way to activate call on Vivoactive 3

Developer Reply
December 16, 2019, CoCoTTe42

Hi, sorry about that... I will remove support on Vivoactive, have too much problem. I passed lot (lot) of time to get working on Vivoactive3 because this watch have very few memory, and now there are problems with launch button (you are not the ony one to report me). Really sorry about that, but I cannot do anything ... the function I call is the same for all watch and it's works perfectly on the simulator. So I supposed it's a bug on the watch firmware ... Regards.

Thanks for the great widget, it will now replace GarminFhem with me. Nevertheless, I still have suggestions for improvement :) The first key press is superfluous "Press Menu or Start to select". And you could also omit "Press start to select" if there is only one action, so you can head for faster action. Maybe that's optional. Please do not see as criticism, but as suggestions. thanks again for the great widget.

Hi, thanks for you review. I will think about delete the need of the first press, but for the rest, it's already done ;o) If there is only one device and one action, it's automaticaly selected with any press. Same, is there is only one action for a device, after selecting this device, the action is automaticlay selected. If it's not the case on your watch, please send me a email with a screeshot of your settings in garmin connect. Regards

Sorry, no statistics available yet.
