  1. The "Goodnight" Flic

    Crawl into bed, flic the Flic to simultaneously turn off or dim all lights, shut garage door, lock all doors, set Nest to nighttime temp, start Dropcam recording ... maybe even text a loved one a goodnight kiss.

  2. 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

  3. A flic that glows in the dark

    Make it easier for people to find them in the dark.

  4. 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.

  5. Delivering the flic to early backers

    I suggest you finally deliver the flics to your early kickstarter backers. Ordered november 2014. After one year still no delivery.
    That should be your NUMBER 1 priority

  6. Mute, increase or decrease volume on a Sonos system.

    I would love to be able to mute, raise and lower volume with a flic. I would put one on the wall of each room so I could quickly adjust the volume or mute if the phone rings or I don't have my phone handy to open the Sonos app. If this was an option, I would definitely buy some flics. Is there a way to find out if this is possible?

  7. Use Flic to open Shazam to ID a music track or song

    Flic activates Shazam which then ID's the music playing without you having to get your phone out, unlock, launch Shazam and hit listen - by which time the song you want to ID has changed

  8. 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...

  10. My wake-up button

    I will place my Flic on the side of my bed. When my iPhone alarm rings in the morning I will click the Flic and it:
    1) Stops the iPhone alarm.
    2) Turns on the light (HUE) in the bathroom.
    3) Turns on the Sonos in the bathroom.
    4) Start a 5 min timer on my wife and kid's iPhones (optional).

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Use Flic to skip to the next song on Sonos (Players don't have any forward button)

    Sonos players don't allow you to skip to the next track. I don't know why, all music services allow it but Sonos only lets you skip forward on the app.

  17. IFTTT/DO/Tasker/Zapier Integration

    There are so many automation "links" out there, that there is no need to integrate FLIC with hundreds of different actions. If it is a trigger in IFTTT(or whatever), then it can trigger all kinds of things.

  19. 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…

  20. 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"
