Details maybe a little scarce but I'm hoping the hub addresses this. Anyone know?
Contains "double custom bluetooth chips" !! see https://flic.io/introducing-flic-hub/
The current version unfortunately only supports one Flic. Adding support for multiple buttons is of course of high priority for upcoming versions. We will asses, depending on the response we get on this project, how soon we will continue the development work.
I love this but limiting to 1 Flic equates to a Proof of Concept and I think maybe you have already proved that.
I can confirm this launches scripts. You have just obsoleted my bt.tn. If I press the flic between 6 and 7pm on a Friday it orders Pizza, sticks on some old skool, and colour pulses the lights !
The Flic form factor lends them to pervasive use and so to really test the Mac possibilities from my POV would need support for multiple buttons.
I've had the Hue lights since launch and love the impact they have had on our home. It's a great concept to have landing and hall lights that automatically fade on or off at sunrise or sundown and it's cool to be able to change the mood of a room with gentle colour flows or fire up a whole house disco when Friday comes around :-)
The BUT was always that if the lights were turned off at the wall then none of the above magic would happen.
I have tried many solutions over the years and all have fallen short however the Flics have now solved this brilliantly. I've been able to replace all our light switches with blank plates and stuck a Flic on top. They look brilliant, and I've set them to toggle lights on or off in the current or adjacent rooms, or hold down to put the house to bed. And of course power is maintained to the Hue lights so the aforementioned magic is a reality.
Huge thank you to Hue for solving this long standing problem in such an elegant and simple way.
Looking forward to my next delivery which will be put to good use as a smart doorbell :-)
