I’m using a Flic button as my doorbell. I would like to use my LIFX lights as an alert when the button is pressed, by having the lights blink.
I currently have it set up through IFTTT however there is a delay.
Is there a way of implementing directly through the flic hub via local network?
Look like this is an option with Hue lights but not LIFX.

I use flic as a doorbell, and in the case we don't hear the speaker, say we are in the shower or are listening to noise cancelling headphones, we want our lights to alert us. I have hue and lifx lights in the home, I prefer the lifx lights. The hue integration has an alert mode, but the lifx integration does not, this is quite annoying as makes lifx lights unsuitable for the alert. The workaround was to set lifx to green then hold the flic doorbell to set to white again, but this does not restore to the original colour and interferes with whatever the light's previous state was, be it another colour or brightness or off
