Allow the Flic Hub's IR blaster to be used as a "Then" on IFTTT. Example : associating an IR blaster command to be triggered by a voice command to my Google Home.11 votes
It would be nice, if you can intergrate the buttons inside home assistnt. Like the Flic Smart Button. If you have installed the library on a PI.
The configuration would be something like this:
# Example configuration.yaml entry
- host: DEVICE_IP_ADDRESS
- host: DEVICE_IP_ADDRESS
After this, every button connected to the hub, would be a binary sensor like the smart button component and it would interact as a event trigger.

Change the app so that you can click on buttons that are configured under the hub as if they were the real physical button and perform the correlating action e.g. virtual button via phone.
Could even make them work over internet, which would allow remote execution.6 votes
If you iterate on the Hub, I would love to see the second generation able to take power from PoE. This would assist with corporate or advanced home deployments; less cables, no power outlet near Flic Hub required.5 votes
Currently, I do this manually for each button. My POC project has few buttons for demo but I can imagine how tedious this can be if I'll require more buttons.
It can be a query or url param, or a value in post body.4 votes
I will shortly receive my new Flic Hub, but am dreading the fact that I have to now set up all my buttons again and re-create all of the actions against those buttons.
Can I not just transfer all my current buttons configured on my phone and their associated actions directly to the Hub without having to go through the add button to hub setup that seems to be suggested on your how to set up your Hub video?
Hi! This has been debated in the team a lot, and for now, we haven’t implemented it for one main reason: most actions people use on their phones are phone-specific, such as sending a text message, sharing location, etc. Therefore we can’t switch them over to the hub.
On the other hand, all functions that are shared between the phone and the hub could be transferred, and we’re thinking of a way to make this migration simple.
For now, unfortunately, you’ll have to transfer all your Flics manually. Thanks for the feedback, we’ll consider this idea and keep you updated :)
I'd like to control a Flic button from a Webapp on a mobile device. Do you have an available SDK for it?9 votes
currently you can triple click your power button on your android phone to send an sos message to programmed contacts with your location. Can you programme the flic so old people can push the flic once to send the sos message?2 votes
Hi! This is currently working in the Flic app. It’s called “Send Location Text”. Check it out and let us know what you think! :)
It is currently possible to turn on or off TV (with HDMI-CEC support) using Chromecast. I can for example use my Google Home to say "turn on/off TV" and this action will be performed.
But instead of using my voice it would be nice to let a Flic button do the job instead.7 votes
Please add an option to trigger an action with 3 clicks apart from the current options.Would be great if you add this to the app.
Would it be possible to press a flic button and have it run a python script or any scripting language from the hub? This would be very useful for having actions like turning on an Xbox via the Xbox WoL function or for running any other scriptable function.2 votes
Would love to see some integration aimed towards corporate spaces. I'd love to have the option to not integrate with your web service at all and keep the Flic buttons and their interactions behind the corporate firewall (on the intranet), but certainly include the ability to talk to the web service or MS Flow, IFTTT, etc. I can imagine an office where I drop Flic Hubs next to my APs for coverage, and include "Summon IT" buttons in the conference rooms or something silly. Just seems like a decent space to move this into that may find some use!2 votes
During the night my daughter often ask for us to put a light on. So we push the flic button and a hue lamp switches on on 1% and then after 5-10 minutes she is fast a sleep. And so are we, and then the light keeps on until I wake up again.
I would like to place the flic button in her room so she can press the button, the lamp switches on on 1% and then after 10 minutes the lamp switches off automatically.
Is this possible?3 votes
[Changed to “started” because this is only available in the Android app]
Hi! This is possible with the Android Flic app! :) Here’s how to do it: When configuring the “click” you should add your first action, which is turning on the light. Then you can “chain” another action after that to turn off the light.
The important thing is to delay this action by clicking the little clock icon at the top and setting the time you’d like.
For iOS at the moment this isn’t possible, unfortunately.
I use my iPhone sleep app as an alarm clock in the morning, and I need to keep the phone near the bed to be able to snooze or turn off the wake up alarm.
It would be great if flic will be able to snooze or turn off also alarm from the sleep app.5 votes
I have another app that needs a tap - anywhere on the screen to start a panoramic photo shoot (vrKit from dermandar)
Would be great to tap via flic command.2 votes
From android is possible to trigger wake on lan, flic hub also could trigger a wake on lan packet for a specific device in the same network of Flic Hub.1 vote
Can robtop and flic make a geometry dash game for flic1 vote
It would be very useful to have a delay timer in the flic app or hub. This could be useful to (with one click): start a device (e.g. by turning a Wemo switch on), wait for the device to boot completely, give a command to the device (e.g. using an internet request).1 vote
