    If, indeed, Flic cannot be made to communicate with Alexa, it might be time for the developers to contact the people behind the smart hubs such as Hubitat, SmartThings...

    I just checked with both Hubitat and SmartThings compatible devices and the Flic button has not been added/integrated to the list of the devices compatible with those hubs...

    From personal experiences, the people behind the development of the Hubitat hub are quite active at integrating devices that are usually not supported by any other hubs.

    Compatibility with Amazon Alexa has been asked (requested) for more than a year and, so far, nothing has been heard from the developers...

    It appears that the developers are more interested in coming up with new devices/gadgets than improving the Flic compatibility!

    But, again, it appears that almost all the developers of such gadgets are more interested in expanding their product lines than improving their already released products...

    It would be better if communications with Amazon Alexa were performed using WiFi rather than the limited Bluetooth - the Flic Hub can already controlled both Bluetooth and WiFi devices.
    An Alexa skill would be the best option - a Flic skill.

    The original post was placed on March 2015 and, so far, nothing has been done about a possible integration of the Flic (and Flic Hub) with the Universal Devices ISY-994i!

    I guess my purchase of the Flic Hub was a bad investment...

    Indeed, both INSTEON and the Flic Hub communicate through WiFi - why can they not communicate together...

    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!

    Indeed, adding SmartThings support would be one of the best improvement for the Flic Hub and buttons...
