To operate, each Flic button must be linked to a device, such as a phone, laptop, or Flic Hub. Utilizing a Flic Hub offers the advantage of not requiring a phone to be present for the Flic buttons to function. This means that buttons can be installed in your home or workplace for anyone to use even if you're not present.
Please note that for Flic Twist, a Flic Hub is necessary.
The Hub Mini is our newest Hub with a smaller, optimized design. It has the same functionalities as the Hub LR with a few exceptions (see table below) and it’s a great choice for basic home automation without HomeKit or IR-blaster. Just like the Hub LR it uses Bluetooth 5 Low Energy Long Range to communicate with Flic Products on distances of up to 50m (150ft). Flic Hub Mini will get Matter support when we release that during 2024.
The Hub LR is the option for the advanced user. It has Apple HomeKit support and is fully programmable (with our SDK). The Hub LR also includes features such as an audio jack, Ethernet connection, 5GHz WiFi, and an IR port, providing you with even more flexibility in how you control your devices. The built-in IR port enables you to control your TV, sound system, and other IR-enabled devices with your phone or tablet. Flic Hub LR will get Matter support when we release that during 2024.
It’s easy to setup a Flic Hub

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 have been using Flic buttons in combination with LIFX light bulbs since 2016. Along the way I kept adding buttons throughout my house and they all work perfectly via the Flic Hub. I'd recommend this in a heartbeat because the freedom of having psychical control over your lights/scenes is unmatchable over any other option.
11/10 would buy it again!
*New Matter-compatible HomeKit products will be compatible with Flic Twist.
