  3. Amazon Alexa support for smart home

    Pair the flic using Bluetooth as an “amazon Alexa Gadget” (Bluetooth button) you could then be able to assign smart home routines to a button click so pushing a single button would turn off a number of items for bed, or set the lights and tv for movie night all at a single button press

  6. Home automation or connected objects

    It would be nice to trigger actions in the form of queries HTTP / HTTPS box to home automation, web server, etc ...

    I have a home automation box and I can:
    - Make it speak by: http: //ipaddress:8080/sarah/speaks="Hello the World !!!"?
    - Turn on the blue light: http://ip
    address:8080/sarah/milight?status=ON&color=blue
    - Turn on the television: http://ip_address:8080/sarah/TV?status=ON
    ect ...

    In doing be able to control all devices that support the applications HTTP / HTTPS.

    Make an API in Node.js

    cordially

  7. Philips hue SCENE integration

    Now I have to select a color and brightness, while I have already done that by 'scenes' in the Philips hue app. I want to get the possibility to select those scenes and connect those with Flic

    We rate our buttons to IP44 standard which officially classifies them as splashproof. They are not fully waterproof and we do not recommend using them in environments where the button could be fully submerged or sprayed with water for more than 10 mins. However using it with wet hands, or just light splashing of water will not affect the button, so you could place them on the wall in the bath/shower :)

  9. Http Calls (POST/GET) and REST API - Flic will become compatible with the WHOLE WEB!

    Make Flic able to do standart POST/GET and maybe even REST api calls... in this way, you will be able to do REALLY anything with Flic!
    Post your location? Done!
    Open your door? Easy!
    Share a post on Facebook? You name it!
    In this way, Flic will become REALLY an open platform, users from all around the world will be able to do ANYTHING with it, not just what the devs conceived!

  11. GoPro Action!

    Start and stop video or photo recording on a GoPro Camera while it is in it's water tight housing. Fumbling for the buttons on the water tight case can be a bit tricky, especially when wearing gloves while skiing or diving. And messing around with the iOS or Android App can be cumbersome if you just need a quick shot. But pressing a Flic would be super easy!

  12. Answer Call

    Answer or pick up a call.

    One button, mute music, wait 1 sec and then answer an incoming call. Very useful when working from home (or office where you can have music on) so you don't have to fumble with music control and phone. Could also mute sound on TV so you can have the ballgame on while working.

  14. 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.

  15. 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

  18. Google Home/Alexa Integration

    I'd like to see this be paired with google home/alexa. I don't like the idea of those devices listening all the time but these are waterproof and small to have a few around the house.
    Click once to activate the voice recording to use either google home or alexa, double click to de-activate voice recording again. Hold to have it activate for a customised time period (like when cooking hold it to activate for an hour whilst cooking) then the voice activation is cancelled again.
    This would give a LOT of the needed control of the constant listening which feels…

    This is a great idea, and we’ve been wanting to implement this for a while now! Unfortunately, there are no public API’s for Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri yet, so we don’t have a way to wake them. We’ll keep pushing!

  19. 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.

  20. 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
