  1. 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

    • Music control ( pandora, spotify, ect... ) on google home / amazon alexa

      it would be cool to be able to skip songs with a button instead of having to say a command or pulling out your phone

      • 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.

        • Pressing Flic to activate voice typing/dictation

          Press the flic button to activate the microphone button on the device so that I can type with my voice. I have a disability and pressing the little button on the keyboard is challenging. This would make typing messages and searching the web soooo much easier.

          • Integration with QLab.

            A few simple commands like "Space Bar", "Esc" and arrows is enough.

            • Remote IR Flic

              Have the function of the hubs IR attachment, that is separate to the hub, that can be located in locations the hub may not work (ie, locate an IR Flic on the ceiling of a room, that can reach more devices, in a position where the hub cannot be easily positioned) or to be able to control multiple IR devices in multiple rooms across multiple IR Flics.

                • Duplicate button

                  Save time by duplicating a button instead of adding all steps again

                  • Flic Footswitch

                    Nearly the same flic device, but with the strength and design to be pressed by the foot.

                    • 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:
                        https://github.com/50ButtonsEach/hax-with-flic-osx/issues/21

                        • Sonos cycle through selected favorites

                          In the bathroom every morning me, my wife and my two kids all want to hear diffrent favorites/stations on our Sonos.
                          Rigth now it takes a iPhone or iPad in the room and multible clicks to do this.
                          We would like to have following setup:
                          1 click starts playing my favorite station
                          2 click starts playing my wifes selected favorite playlist
                          3 click starts playing my first dughters selected favorite playlist
                          4 click starts playing my second dughters selected favorite station
                          5= the 1 click (cycle)

                          • Change the background of my text screen on Android.

                            Pushing Flic would change my text background to a preselected picture in my phone.

                                  • Write text and it's read out loud by a computer voice

                                    We use this all the time in the office but it takes so much time. Need to go to a website that supports open text entry to speech, do audio recording of the output. Then upload it to Spotify into a new playlist, then set it as a URL. It's super fun but takes 15 minutes each. If we could just enter a text and via button press it's read out loud -> AMAZING! I will instantly buy 10 buttons

                                      Sorry, yet another Hub to integrate. This one is very open, lean and fast. It's the basis of my home security system and automation.

                                        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!
