Flic has a different approach to controlling devices (currently mainly focussed on smartdevices) then Homey has. But i think, together they can really complement each other. Flic is a smart button, which can be really usefull if you have a task that is recurring often, or is easier to just push a button rather than going through speech. Or even if it is in a location where you don't have a microphone and you just want a quick button. It is also wearable and has multiple actions (click, double-click and hold).
- Alarm snooze button on the side of your bed
- Coming home/leaving home button at your door
- On your (old school) washing machine, to trigger a reminder 2 hours later to hang your laundry
I just ran in to this project, so I have barely explored all the possibilities, but it instantly felt like it could potentially fill a gap in total home automation.
I have suggested the idea to make Flic compatible with Homey. If you feel it could add value as well, please leave a vote on:
Also any suggestions on how you would use it are very welcome.
