Flic Bluetooth Multi-Function Button

A single Flic button is ~$25, a great price for one of the smallest and discreet smart home buttons available.

Flic Button for SmartThings
Flic is the smallest wireless home automation button we’ve been able to find, but it comes with a few caveats. This button relies on a constant connection to a nearby iOS or Android device, using low-energy Bluetooth. This restriction limits the possible smart home implementations to room with:

  • A Flic hub in the home connected to the local network
  • iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch present (i.e. mounted on the wall or in an adjacent room)
  • iMac or equivalent Bluetooth equipped computer

Once the Flic button is paired to the nearby Bluetooth device, users can use the Flic mobile app or webCoRE to customize the triggers and automations for:

  • Single button top
  • Double button tap
  • Long press + hold

From the manufacturer: Flic is a simple and stylish wireless button that acts as a shortcut to your favorite actions on your phone. With one Flic, you can call a cab, text your loved ones, or turn the lights on.
