  1. 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?

        • 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.

          • IKEA Trådfri functionality

            Would be cool if functionality for IKEA's smart lightning system Trådfri could be developed for Flic.

            • 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…

              • Dead man switch functionality

                Stopwatch while flic is pressed.
                So on and so forth...

                • shortcut

                  To be able to add a shortcut of a programmed action on the mobile desktop.

                  In case I dont have access to my button, easily open the phone and tap on a shortcut action that emulate a touch of the button.

                  • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                                  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 time…

                                  • 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.

                                    • 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...

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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
