  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.

        • 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.

          • 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. :)

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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,…

                  • Show actual color, saturation, and brightness levels in color-picker

                    When picking light (e.g., LIFX) color, saturation, and brightness, it's very hard to pick the exact desired levels with the wheel and sliders -- and it's almost impossible to pick the same color/levels across different Flic actions. It would be really helpful if the interface exposed the exact color, saturation, and brightness values (in RGB/hex or HSB/V) -- and even better if values could be input into for those fields.

                    For example, the LIFX app exposes hue (23 in the attached image) and brightness (90%) -- but unfortunately not the saturation value (the white circle slides up and down). For…

                    • 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?

                      • 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)

                              • Multi button Sonos controller

                                With the death of the CR100 (still smarting over this) most older Sonos users would love a 4 button controller (vol + , vol-, play\pause, and skip). I use my single button Filc to control my Sonos in the bedroom but would love to see a multibutton controller to replace my CR100's in conjunction with the Flic hub

                                  • 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…

                                      • Migrate phone actions to 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

                                          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 :)

                                        • 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
