Custom Work: Blink(1)

While requests for customized solutions are common around here, some of them are a little more unique than others. One such request from Fritz Welter at Netinteract was to integrate a customizable call pop-up window in gloCOM. The purpose? To enable call notifications with blink(1), a USB indicator light. (Learn more at https://blink1.thingm.com/about). Interesting.

This was easy enough to do. Blink(1) provides an API that can be reached through the localhost. Any URL can be placed in the call pop-up window in gloCOM, so in this case the user just has to insert the localhost to blink their USB device. gloCOM’s custom URL field opens up endless possibilities to integrate with other third party products like blink(1).

Thanks to Fritz Welter and Netinteract for bringing this to our attention and giving us the opportunity to deliver a solution. With so many customers asking for integration with blink(1), we are happy that Welter can now tell them “yes”.
