  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Add a magnet sticker to flick

    It'd be nice to have a magnet on flick. This would allow us to put flick on boards, walls, fridges.... and many more.

  5. 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.

  9. Google Home routines

    I have a number of different brand lights, electrical outlets etc that I have integrated with google home. I have set up a number of routines which integrate many apps into one. It would be intrinsic to have these routines available at one click rather than asking google all the time.

  10. Enable Airplay

    Starting music With a flic of a button is great but streaming it to a Airplay enabled speaker would be even greater.

  12. 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: DEVICEIPADDRESS
    - host: DEVICEIPADDRESS

    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

  15. Integrate with SmartLife / Tuya (https://www.tuya.com/) devices.

    The SmartLife / Tuya apps controls a huge variety of devices from several brands, and it would be great to control these devices directly from Flic buttons.

    IFTTT used to be able to control Smartlife Devices, but that seems to have been broken for months now.

    Scene activation is available through IFTTT, but the delay is incredibly long and requires creating a scene to turn devices on and then for turning them off. for EACH device.

  16. Add more clicks

    You guys should add more ways to actuate the flic. Such as doing triple click, double click and long press on that lass click etc..

  17. 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…

  18. Snapping Images and Starting Video Recording... From A Drone!

    I am an avid drone flyer. I use my drone for aerial photography and videography. Currently I have to remove my hands from the controls to tap the screen on my iOS or Android Device in order to start or stop recording video, or to snap a picture. I am hoping that I can mount multiple Flics to the back of my RC Transmitter and assign them to do these functions without my hands ever leaving the sticks. That would be awesome!!!!

  19. 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.
