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://ipaddress:8080/sarah/milight?status=ON&color=blue
- Turn on the television: http://ip_address:8080/sarah/TV?status=ON
In doing be able to control all devices that support the applications HTTP / HTTPS.
Make an API in Node.js
This can be done with the HTTP Request and the Internet Request functions in the Flic Apps.
Would allow for connection to smart devices, changing of music or youtube, and other things while in the bath.42 votes
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 :)
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!42 votes

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!38 votes
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.37 votes
This can be done on Android, but iOS would not let us do that.

Connection with the Spotify app instead of playing music in the Flic app

My wake-up button
I will place my Flic on the side of my bed. When my iPhone alarm rings in the morning I will click the Flic and it:
1) Stops the iPhone alarm.
2) Turns on the light (HUE) in the bathroom.
3) Turns on the Sonos in the bathroom.
4) Start a 5 min timer on my wife and kid's iPhones (optional).26 votes
This can be done!
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.24 votes

Use Flic to skip to the next song on Sonos (Players don't have any forward button)
Sonos players don't allow you to skip to the next track. I don't know why, all music services allow it but Sonos only lets you skip forward on the app.23 votes
