How to do custom actions using your Mi Band 5 button
It’s easy to see why the Notify App has become so popular among watch owners. The app is a convenient way to receive notifications on your wrist, and it does not require you to pull out your phone every time you get a message or notification.
The custom button integration is an advanced feature of the app that allows you to run custom actions using your Mi Band 5. This means that instead of having to open the app, you can simply tap on the watch button and do what you need to do without ever taking out your phone from your pocket.
This will allow you to do things like turn off the lights or change the temperature of your home with just a flick of your wrist.
The dedicated integration done by Notify App with your watch models, allows you to run custom actions by using the physical* button of watch, by lifting it* or by using the music player integration.
