HomeKit functionality is exclusively accessible with Flic 2 and Hub LR. Unfortunately, it's not compatible with Flic Twist, as Apple does not support the use of dimmers as a physical rotational input device, limiting support solely to dimmable lights.

“I have to say I like them a lot. If you live in a household where some of you like smart home kit and others are more skeptical, these buttons could be a great way to bridge the gap.”
Homekit
“There are many possibilities for using but- tons, but you can rarely find such a versatile and universal product as the Flic buttons. [...] It is hard not to recommend this product.”
Ambient
“Flic is the easiest to use and best performing of the ever-increasing smart button bunch”
Wired
“If you have got a smart home setup going, you can use it to dim the lights and launch Netflix with one touch. If you are jogging at night, you can use it as a panic button, configuring it to send your location in the event of trouble. [...] You can probably use Flic to do it without taking your phone out of your pocket."

1 click turns on my kitchen lights - 2 clicks turn off my kitchen lights - Hold turns off ALL lights throughout my house.

I would say that this button has streamlined many ritualistic scenarios. I’ve ordered more. Wish I’d bought the six-pack now. Never mind. I’m sure I’ll be back.

Thanks for an innovative add-on that ties in neatly with my automation.

I’ve had a great couple of weeks testing the new Flic Twist. It’s definitely a device I see myself getting more of to setup all over my home. It pairs easily with their hubs, and adds a knob function on top of the push controls of their Flic 2 buttons. Their integrations with Sonos and Lifx have really elevated the ease of controlling these devices around my home, especially for family and guests. With new integrations and features planned, I can wait to see what other twists the Shortcut Labs team has in store for us!
