  1. Make a Flic app for Apple TV

    I have a habit of closing down iphone apps to save battery. But since the Flic app have to run for the buttons to work properly, the Flic app should be converted for the new Apple TV that has a app store. It shouldn't be too hard.

          Hi everyone! We’re going to mark this idea as “under review” since the Flic Hub (http://bit.ly/flichub) is in process and that will allow you to use your Flics without a phone, and program them via wifi/ethernet.
          It’s not the exact idea all of you are asking for in the comments but we believe it solves the main issue everyone agrees on: using Flics without your phone.
          We’re sure the Flic Hub will solve a lot of things for you! But we’ll leave this topic open in case anyone wants to discuss it further.

        • Raspberry PI integration

          I would be really glad if it was possible to let my Raspberry pi connect to the Flic-button instead of my phone.
          In that way the automation would work even if I am not at home.

            • Integration with Homey (athom.com) for home automation purposes.

              Homey is an awesome new home automation controller with an insane amount of supported protocols (z-wave, zigbee, wifi, IR, etc etc) which could benefit from integration with a device like this.

                      • Better Sonos integration

                        As of now, The Sonos integration lacks some needed features.
                        • Sure, you can play/pause. But that will not solve the problem Start This Radio Station On This Speaker, unless that radio station on beforehand is on que in that speakers playlist. So, the play/pause feature needs the possibility to select a Sonos favorite to play.

                        • Sure, you can select a specific speaker. But if you have the Playbar set up for tv sound (as a group of speakers), all those speakers show up with the same name (see attachment). Should be possible to select either the group or…

                        • Control my SmartThings Smart home!

                          I plan on integrating Flic into my SmartThings setup to control my home. I will be able to control scenes and other automation tasks to control my Hue bulbs, GE Link bulbs, thermostat, my theater setup. I currently have 47 internet connected devices and flic is going to be my way to control my home without needed to unlock my phone.

                          The options are endless!!

                          1. Hit flic and dim my lights and set me motions sensors to movie mode as to not to disturb me while i watch a movie.

                          2. Am i cold? Hit flic twice and my…

                          • Have different uses for different times of the day/week or even different places.

                            I would like to use one Flic to be configured differently depending on when or where it is used. Imagine even the same Flic for different circumstances or places e.g. in the car driving vs at home vs at work.

                                • publishing the FLIC API so I can use it with Linux and gatttool as well

                                  I do stuff with BTLE on Linux. I have written an interface to the TI SensorTAG so I can read out values. Would like to use Flic in a similar way. Just publish all the BTLE UUIDs etc.

                                    • Make Flic compatible with Apple Homekit

                                      Make it compatible with Apple's Homekit to take advantage of older, existing home automation systems and their newly created Homekit bridges. (e.g. Insteon) This will greatly increase the number of devices it could control.

                                      • Turn on the damn lights! (LIFX and Hue)

                                        I have invested in smartbulbs; lightbulbs that you can turn on and off with your smartphone. The problem is that you don't always bring your smartphone everywhere you go. And what if the batteries are out? What if you forget your phone at work? Old light switches just worked.

                                        I would like to simply replace my existing light switches with Flic buttons. That way my lights start working like normal people expect them to.

                                        It isn't groundbreaking, but its extremely useful.

                                        • Integrate flic with a fingerprint sensor

                                          Include a fingerprint sensor so that no one misuses it while you're sleeping. For example if you have set it to call your girlfriend, your parents dont access it while you are away. Or if you have a troublesome brother, he doesnt changes the light pattern you've set your room to. Or if you want to listen to a specific music, no one turns it off. And many more.
