    • Lifx control using the LAN API (no internet)

      At the moment the Lifx bulb control (on Android at least) is done using the HTTP API. That means that Flic is connected to the Lifx cloud account and the actions look like this:

      Flic->Android app----->Lifx cloud----->Bulbs

      The problem with that is that the delay after pressing the Flic is considerate and, worst of all, if the router loses conection to internet while still being powered up and offering WiFi then the button becomes useless.

      It would be great if the Lifx actions supported the LAN API as specified here: https://lan.developer.lifx.com/docs/introduction

      That way the bulbs can be controlled via WiFi…

        • Adding location data to HTTP requests

          Flic can already do HTTP requests but it would be awesome to be able to send your current location along as parameters.

          • Custom Pattern

            We need a more expansive Flic that allows us to define a click pattern. For instance, open the app and tap add pattern. It says "listening". Now I tap my flic: Tripple Tap then a Long Hold. I tap "Done" on my phone. I now have a patter of three quick taps and one long. It gives us more possibilities and doesn't limit our flic to just three click options. I want to use this for time tracking, but I have more than three categories. I look a bit silly wandering around with two to five flics clipped to my…

            • Flic and tp-link Kasa app

              It would be get if flic worked with tp-links Kasa so you could control lights that are connected to remote plug sockets.

                  • home assistant home

                    Home Assistant home automation smart hub integration. It would be great to be able to add flic as an input device into a home assistant server running on something like a raspberry pi 3. By adding an integration into home assistant you essentially get access to using your flic to automate about 450+ devices without your phone needing to be home to use it. An example automation could turn off all your lights in your house, turn on your bedroom light, turn off your tv, stereo and, lock your doors for when you're ready to go to bed.

                    • Give more actions for a single button if context changes (running, driving, listening to music) etc

                      Give more actions for a single button using context like driving, listening to music), running, arriving at home, arriving to work office etc and assigning different sets of actions to same button. This would make the button more valuable. A single button for all actions.

                      • HealthKit integration for tracking activities

                        I'd like to use the stopwatch function, but then log that to some activity in iOS HealthKit. Mostly I'm interested in tracking sleep, but there are other activities that would make sense too.

                        • Allow reusing http requests

                          Allow users to copy or export/import http requests. I have several devices and each device has several very similar http request actions.

                          An easy way to copy and reuse a request would be great - maybe a repository following the user where actions could be saved for reuse - this could include other types as well of course

                                    • TOGGLE Display On/Off depending on state

                                      Instead of just having a display off option, there should be an option to toggle the display on or off. If it's off, the option turns the display on. If the display is on, it turns it off.

                                      VERY simple to implement and tremendously useful!
