  1. Allow the use of Flic Hub's IR blaster through IFTTT

    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.

    • Home assistant, hub intergration

      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
      flic:
      hubs:
      - 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.

      Thank you

      • Integrate Favourites from Sonos

        I‘ve found posts from 2015‘

        Since that is nothing happened to select a Sonos List/ favorite by pressing a flic button.

        So what is so difficult by integrating this feature.

        For this reason i post it one more time.

        • Working with “Smart Life” wifi plugs

          Would be great if one could turn the Wifi smart plugs from “Smart Life”, bought as amazon.co.uk and more. On and off. :)

          • Simulate pressing a Flic button in the iOS app

            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.

            • Autostart App

              Old people have great use of flic in many ways. However they will always forget or just dont know to start the app after their phone was restarted (for instance when battery was fully flat).
              So update the app for it to autostart. Perhaps not easy but many people will benefit. Please try your best to make it happen. Alternatively port the app on the apple tv (thats already an existing request).

              • Option to include the unique id of the button with the http request

                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.

                • No button Flic

                  No button Flic - flic with connector that allows the flic to be triggered by closing connection from ext devices such as relay, magnetic switch, floor pad switch, microswitch contacts, etc
                  I have remote driveway sensor that makes a sound when something triggers the IR sensor. There is a N/O relay contact output that I’d like to use as a WiFi trigger. The no button flic would be perfect for that application.

                  • Pressing Flic to activate voice typing/dictation

                    Press the flic button to activate the microphone button on the device so that I can type with my voice. I have a disability and pressing the little button on the keyboard is challenging. This would make typing messages and searching the web soooo much easier.

                    • Flic Hub PoE

                      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.

                        • Door bell, use flic with cc audio speaker and or Google Home device

                          Door bell, use flic with cc audio speaker.

                          At the moment it's possible to use a flic as a door bell button together with the 3.5jack and a speaker and if I understand correctly, connect the hub to the speaker. Then I use play sound and finish the setup. This will require devices some may not have.

                          I have around my house speakers connected with chromecast audio (3). I also have a couple of devices connected to Google Home (6).

                          It would be great if I can pair one button to chromecast and then choose one or more devices.
                          Next…

                          • Music control ( pandora, spotify, ect... ) on google home / amazon alexa

                            it would be cool to be able to skip songs with a button instead of having to say a command or pulling out your phone

                            • Leviton...

                              Leviton is a major electrical supply company, and best of all offers in wall WIFI support switches, which don’t require a hub (also bluetooth options)

                              It would be great if I could control my switches from my flic, since thus far all I can do is make my ipad far from 10’ (i’m not intersted in IFTTT yet)

                              • Allow setting of variables (Boolean, strings and decimals) and use them in if comparison to determine if actions should be performed.

                                Sometimes the toggle function can have two actions inverted when one is already active, e.g. I come home and somebody is already playing music. Pressing the flic then turns on the light but turns the music off. By setting a variable, 'at home=false', and using an if loop I could make sure that it turns both the lights and music on instead of toggle and turn both off under the else part of the loop.

                                Also, I have a Tasker routine running from my phone which I'd like to transfer to the hub. At night it gets the sunrise time…

                                • A flat round plastic disc (same diameter as Flic) with hole in middle

                                  Please create a flat round plastic disc (same diameter as Flic) with hole in middle, so hole will match the size of normal switch (eg, for Australian switch hole is 20mm x 20mm x 5mm deep). Disc will sit over original switch (hole will still allow original switch to operate) and Flic will sit over disc to cover original switch. When servicing light fitting (changing bulbs), you can remove Flic and operate original switch.

                                  • Possible to define light color/brightness as reusable setting

                                    Today in Hue/LIFX when creating a Turn on/Toggle action with custom color you have the wheel of color and brightness sliders. But this makes it very hard to create the exact same color/brightness setting for different actions on the same or different flic buttons.
                                    I for example have one flic button that turns on and off one hue light in the kitchen table, and another flic button that controls all lights in the kitchen (2 Hue, 1 LIFX LED strip & 3 Trådfri) and it is a pain to try to match both hue and LIFX on the same button,…

                                      • for old people to press the flic to activate the inbuilt sos message feature in iphone and android

                                        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?

                                        • Write text and it's read out loud by a computer voice

                                          We use this all the time in the office but it takes so much time. Need to go to a website that supports open text entry to speech, do audio recording of the output. Then upload it to Spotify into a new playlist, then set it as a URL. It's super fun but takes 15 minutes each. If we could just enter a text and via button press it's read out loud -> AMAZING! I will instantly buy 10 buttons
