  1. WebApp SDK

    I'd like to control a Flic button from a Webapp on a mobile device. Do you have an available SDK for it?

      • Turn on/off TV with Chromecast

        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.

        • Switch light on for a certain time

          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?

            [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.

            If you need more details we can help you out on the Community forum https://community.flic.io/ or at support@shortcutlabs.com

          • Flic action - simulate screen tap

            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.

              • I want to use flic to play a Video

                I would like to use flic to interact through VLC on the android phone itself to play a video! You should not need to add in ip addresses for vlc if its on the same blasted (local) network! I can't get the blasted app to work with my Flic and it drives me nuts because thats what I want it for!

                • Sonos cycle through selected favorites

                  In the bathroom every morning me, my wife and my two kids all want to hear diffrent favorites/stations on our Sonos.
                  Rigth now it takes a iPhone or iPad in the room and multible clicks to do this.
                  We would like to have following setup:
                  1 click starts playing my favorite station
                  2 click starts playing my wifes selected favorite playlist
                  3 click starts playing my first dughters selected favorite playlist
                  4 click starts playing my second dughters selected favorite station
                  5= the 1 click (cycle)

                  • 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?

                    • Custom Play Audio Track

                      I use the button to play a sound effect in my classroom. Currently I have replaced the fart sounds with my own audio file, but the same structure could be used to simply choose own own audio file or random playlist (i'd like a playlist option) to start playing off the mac.

                      • Amazon Alexa support for smart home

                        Pair the flic using Bluetooth as an “amazon Alexa Gadget” (Bluetooth button) you could then be able to assign smart home routines to a button click so pushing a single button would turn off a number of items for bed, or set the lights and tv for movie night all at a single button press

                        • Cluster control

                          How about letting several Flic buttons act together? So that they are linked. They still work independently, but have other tasks performed when pressed at the same time.

                          • KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS on a laptop ?

                            There is a "keyboard control" fonction on the phone APP, but it will be really nice to have this fonction on the computer APP !

                            We will be able to put Keyboard shortcuts in any softwear ! (in some of them you can create you own shortcut with just a letter)

                            a dream...

                            • Flick button incorporated in index finger ring

                              Need a small flick button incorporated in an index finger ring that can easily be pressed by the thumb if the hands are otherwise occupied (like when exercising and needing to toggle interval timer 1 or interval timer 2 on or off). Depending on the exercise (like pushups), you may not be able to watch a clock and your hands may not be available to hit a button (but the thumb is).

                                When select Chromecast - audio groups don't appear. Thus multi-room audio via Google Home, Google Home Mini, Chromecast Audio grouped together doesn't appear to be possible and can only play music through a single chromecast audio device.

                                  I'd like to use Flic in my car to identify the songs on the radio with the touch of a button. I do use the paid version 'Shazam Encore'. This version doesn't seem integrated, while the regular Shazam version is. Please add the Encore version.

                                  • Configure Flic Hub

                                    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?

                                    Gus

                                      • Passive mode indicator

                                        In iOS 11 it works better to set the Flic BT in passive mode. The indicator for this is the same as if the Flic is disconnected.

                                        I would like the red "no BT" symbol in the app to be different for the 2 different cases.

                                        • Connect flic with iOS sleep app

                                          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.
