  1. IKEA Trådfri wireless control outlets

    It would be nice if IKEA's Trådfri wireless control outlets could be added to the Trådfri feature in Flic

  2. 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?

  5. Page turner for ForScore and Newzik for conductors.

    I feel you could easily increase your sales with this addition to compatible applications. More and more musicians are using iPad Pros to read music from and conduct. The problem for conductors is the multiple page turns. The Flic is small enough to put in the palm of a conductors baton hand so you wouldn't need to turn pages by touching the screen. The two competitive applocations right now on the iPad are Newzik and ForScore.

  9. 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…

  10. Flic station/hub connected to the flics

    Offer a station/hub/bridge for flics that is connected via bluetooth to the buttons and to the services the flics would do connected to the phone. The hub should use the settings set on your phone app.

    So you do not have to have your phone near the flics to make the actions work.

  11. Send SMS response to incoming call. "Sorry, I am riding my motorbike/bike right now and can't speak. I'll call you back when I arrive."

    Send SMS response to incoming call. "Sorry, I am riding my motorbike/bike right now and can't speak. I'll call you back when I arrive." Useful for when wearing gloves and can't use screen/unable to reach phone.

  12. Dead man's switch: Perform an action when flic is NOT clicked

    Use Flic to say that everything is OK and have Flic perform an action if it's not.

    Send a warning if you forgot to take your pills, notify your personal trainer if you're slacking off or publish your secret wikileaks data if kidnapped by evilcorp.

    The possibilities are endless.

  14. Add support for Android native camera, rather than using Flics built in camera app

    I like that there's a way of taking pictures using the flic app...but I would prefer if the Flic just supported the stock Camera on android.

    Also, to add on to a couple other ideas posted (Conditional Buttons/Configs), the flic button should be smart. When the Camera is open, then switch to camera controls.

  15. Click once - more actions at once

    More than one action for "one click" - e.i. Click once - "turn on hue" AND "turn on Sonos" AND "use harmony hub and shut of TV"

  16. Desktop App

    Multiplatform Flic apps for: Windows 10, Mac OS X, tvOS, Roku, etc... This would allow the Flic buttons to be a permant fixture in a home automation workflow without relying on a single user's mobile device.

    Most desktop machines have bluetooth making this a software add-on rather than a hardware limitation.

  17. A bridge to connect flic to the web/cloud

    Somethings like the bridge of lockitron (http://help.lockitron.com/article/100-how-does-bridge-work):
    flic -> bridge -> web/cloud

    so you don't need to have the phone with you.

  18. Connection with the Spotify app instead of playing music in the Flic app

    Now, when you open Spotify and listen to your music and press on a Flic to skip to the next song, it will open the Flic app and plays your music from there while the song in the Spotify is also still playing...

  19. Kitchen Timer

    1 press: 3 minute timer. Ever want to make the perfect poached egg? 3 minutes, done. Tired of bitter tea? Set a timer for 3 minutes so you don't over-steep. Ever put something back in the oven, just for a few more minutes, and come back to the oven 20 minutes later only because it was billowing smoke and your fire alarm was going off (yeah... Me neither...). Subsequent single presses will keep add additional minutes

    Double Press: Start 10 minute timer / Add 10 minutes. Perfect home made cookies, every time. Also, it happens to be the average…

  20. Delay option for hue!

    It would be nice to get an delay option for the hue lights. For example: click at the flic turns some lights on and 5 minutes after the click my lights go off!

    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
