  1. Saved layouts would be great so buttons could be easily reconfigured for different tasks.

    It would be very helpful if we could save different button layouts and reload to configure a Flic depending on the need.

    • 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

            • Run app without service when no Flics attached

              I use the Flic app solely to connect to the Hub - I have no buttons connected to my phone and am unlikely to do so in the near future. Whenever I run the app the Flic service starts in the background, and doesnt stop when I exit the app (to be clear, this is via the explicit Exit App option in the menu). I don't need or want the background service running when there is no reason for it to be running.

              • Optional Pin backing assessory

                I like the clip that comes with Flic but my clothes often have collars and thing that prevent me from wearing it on the go, it would be nice to have an optional accessory that you can buy that was backing for the Flic that is a Pin so I can pin it anywhere on my clothes.

                    • Expand the count function/app to allow clearing the counter

                      I want to use my Flic to count the number of times I've worn my contacts, as they are two-week disposable contacts. Since I don't wear them every day, I often lose track of how many times I've worn then, but there isn't a function to program the Flic to clear the counter. I want one click to count, a hold to clear. That way, when I notice the count is too high, I can just hold the Flic button to start over. That way I don't have to develop anything further, it's just a built-in feature.

                      • Wake On Lan from Flic Hub

                        From android is possible to trigger wake on lan, flic hub also could trigger a wake on lan packet for a specific device in the same network of Flic Hub.

                        • Migrate phone actions to Flic Hub

                          I will shortly receive my new Flic Hub, but am dreading the fact that I have to now set up all my buttons again and re-create all of the actions against those buttons.

                          Can I not just transfer all my current buttons configured on my phone and their associated actions directly to the Hub without having to go through the add button to hub setup that seems to be suggested on your how to set up your Hub video?

                            Hi! This has been debated in the team a lot, and for now, we haven’t implemented it for one main reason: most actions people use on their phones are phone-specific, such as sending a text message, sharing location, etc. Therefore we can’t switch them over to the hub.
                            On the other hand, all functions that are shared between the phone and the hub could be transferred, and we’re thinking of a way to make this migration simple.
                            For now, unfortunately, you’ll have to transfer all your Flics manually. Thanks for the feedback, we’ll consider this idea and keep you updated :)

                          • IR blaster is weak needs be made with more powerful IR diodes

                            Harmony hub IR bluster is significantly brighter, which allows it to bounce around objects and achieve greater distance.
                            Flic IR blaster is weaker even after being taught directly from the harmony hub.

                            • Running Python scripts or other from/on the hub

                              Would it be possible to press a flic button and have it run a python script or any scripting language from the hub? This would be very useful for having actions like turning on an Xbox via the Xbox WoL function or for running any other scriptable function.

                              • Multi button Sonos controller

                                With the death of the CR100 (still smarting over this) most older Sonos users would love a 4 button controller (vol + , vol-, play\pause, and skip). I use my single button Filc to control my Sonos in the bedroom but would love to see a multibutton controller to replace my CR100's in conjunction with the Flic hub

                                • Turn on/off TV with Chromecast

                                  It is currently possible to turn on or off TV (with HDMI-CEC support) using Chromecast. I can for example use my Google Home to say "turn on/off TV" and this action will be performed.

                                  But instead of using my voice it would be nice to let a Flic button do the job instead.

                                      • Switch light on for a certain time

                                        During the night my daughter often ask for us to put a light on. So we push the flic button and a hue lamp switches on on 1% and then after 5-10 minutes she is fast a sleep. And so are we, and then the light keeps on until I wake up again.

                                        I would like to place the flic button in her room so she can press the button, the lamp switches on on 1% and then after 10 minutes the lamp switches off automatically.

                                        Is this possible?

                                          [Changed to “started” because this is only available in the Android app]

                                          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

                                        • Be able to run shell scripts on mac/linux to "Deploy to PRD"

                                          Would be cool to have the flic app (on mac and linux) to be able to run shell scripts.

                                          This scripts should have access to ENV vars and optional parameters to be set when you configure the button.

                                          I wanted to use this to have a "Deploy to PRD button", which is basically tagging master branch, running some tests and generating a changelog. Then pushing :)

                                          Also see my issue here:
