I Barely Speak To Alexa Anymore Thanks To This TINY Button: Flic 2 Review
I like talking to Alexa, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes a Smart Home button is just better and the flic 2 is the best yet. This tiny wireless smart home button has literally only just been released and was funded on Indiegogo and Kickstarter to create the perfect button and I flipping love it.

You can pair the Flic 2 directly to your phone to use your droid as a hub, or you can pair your button to the Flic hub LR to control Smart Home devices without needing a phone on the network and to also allow Apple Home Kit support. The hub also gives you infrared control if you buy the separate IR accessory so that you can include your TV and AV equipment in your Flic routines.

The integrations are practically endless, but they include Philips Hue, Lifx and most importantly Apple Homekit. There are too many to list, but if your Smart Home device isn’t integrated directly then you can create your own integrations using HTTP, or if you’re not quite that technical then most devices can be controlled via IFTTT. I’ve used IFTTT to connect Flic to my Smart Life devices and the delay is only a couple of seconds. I also used HTTP to integrate my Flic hub with my Hubitat locally on my network. The software is incredibly easy to use.

Flic1 versus Flic 2: The Flic 2 has a number of improvements, but primarily they are; Better battery life (around 3 years which is twice the original), better range (up to 200 metres) and Homekit support (for the new hub). I always loved the original Flic, but the Flic 2 is now even better, and the new hub is backwards compatible so you can still use the original Flic buttons!

Flic is certainly not a cheap solution, but it is awesome. If you want something well made that just works reliably then it’s totally worth your consideration.
