Make sure you don't stick Flic to any fragile surfaces, such as paper hangings etc.
A good approach is to follow these easy steps:
A good approach is to follow these easy steps:
Flic pulsates red when pressed if it is not in actionable range of a device. This means Flic is either not connected to any device or the device it is connected to is out of range of Flic’s sensor. Inversely, if Flic is connected correctly within actionable range of its device, the red light will not show.
Your Flic works together with the Flic app like this:
Your Flic is locked to your device and to the Flic app on your device. Your Flics, and their actions, are also saved to your account. If you have shared Flic to other users or devices, Flic will be connected to the device that it first had a chance of connecting to. Flic can only be connected to one device at a time and will always try to connect to a device that has previously paired with it.
Yes! Your Flics, and their actions, are saved to your account. This means that you don’t have to worry about reconfiguring of your Flics if you sign out or if you change your phone.
Flic is great to use for actions which do not require you to
interact with your screen. For all these actions, no push
notification is needed.
For actions and functionality where you interact with the device screen, the push notification is used to start the action or third party app. The main reason for this is because there are limitations in the operating systems to unlock the device and launch an app.
Flic still provides extreme shortcuts for apps that require push notifications. Instead of having to open each app to complete an action, simple press the notification and the action will be completed for you.
Yes! You can share your Flics in two ways:
Make sure that the Flic is not currently connected to any device. If the Flic was previous connected to a device, you can either:
In order to trigger some specific actions with your Flic
(for example control your Philips Hue lights, or use Spotify on iOS)
you need to sign in to the specific third party service
(in this example, sign in to Philips Hue or to Spotify).
Under the tab “Providers” you will find these providers and be able to connect the Flic app to their services.
An action is what happens when you click a Flic, e.g. “Find my phone”. You can set different actions to happen for the three triggers that Flic supports: click, double click, and hold. You can also set multiple actions to happen for each trigger.
You can have different actions assigned to each of the three triggers:
click, double click and hold. There is no limit to how many
actions you can assign to each trigger.
You can also set a delay on specific actions by tapping the clock in the action settings screen. (Delays are not yet available on iOS)
Yes! We are currently working hard to add more actions straight from
the Flic app. In addition to this, we are working with multiple
partners to enable more functionalities directly through the
Also, check out what you can do using services such as IFTTT and Zapier.
Flic can control many different third party devices, either
directly through the Flic app or through internet services such as
If you find the third party device in the list of actions in this app, tap the action to set it up. If you can’t find it, there is a big chance that IFTTT can do it. Tap The IFTTT action and set up IFTTT separately in the IFTTT App.
IFTTT is a web-based service that allows users to create
"customized actions” which can be triggered by, for example,
the push of a Flic. IFTTT is therefore one way to make your
Flic open your garage door, turn off the lights, post a tweet,
or whatever you would like it to do.
To get started with Flic and IFTTT:
Yes! Flic offers native apps for both Android and iOS devices,
which means that the apps will run optimally on each device for the
best user experience. This also means that the Flic team is working
hard to develop each app separately.
Furthermore, there are different possibilities in iOS and in Android. Some functionality is easier to access in iOS and some is easier to access in Android. There are also different limitations in the two platforms, which mean that actions may differ.
If you use an action which sends out SMS (for example the Distress signal), you need SMS credits in order to use the action. We are working hard to deliver the best service possible to you, and we only charge the cost price for each SMS.
If you are using an iOS device, you need to manually restart the
If you are using an Android device, this should not be a problem. If you still have problems with connecting your Flic, please read the other questions in this FAQ section.

Flic is a wireless shortcut button that sticks to any surface and can trigger functions on your smartphone, such as playing your music or ordering a Taxi.
Flic connects to a smartphone (both iOS and Android) or tablet. When flic is pressed, it uses the device to activate a function predefined by the user. This function can either be something directly on the device - such as make a loud sound so the user can find it - or something else such as turning on a light or starting music on the stereo.
You can define different actions for Click, Double Click and Hold. There is no limit to how many things can happen at once when you press Flic. All actions are easily changed in the Flic app.
Flic uses Bluetooth Low-energy (BLE) to communicate with your smartphone.
Flic works up to 150 feet (50 meters) away from your device/smartphone.
Flic comes with a double sided adhesive so you can stick it to any surface. If it gets dirty, just wash it with soap and it will be good as new. Flic’s battery hatch can also be exchanged to one with a clip-on (so you can wear Flic).
Yes, Flic is weather-proof. Not yet tested against exact IP class.
We have optimized the battery life to last as long as possible.
For most use-cases it will last up to one year or more.
Flic also has a replaceable battery.
To change the battery, stick your Flic to a flat surface. Gripping the silicon edges, gently screw the upper housing of the Flic counter clockwise. You'll then be able to lift the top off and replace the battery with a regular coin cell battery (CR2016).
This depends a little on the phone or tablet that you are using and on how you set up your Flics. Generally, you can have up to 10 Flics connected at the same time, say in your home. But then you can have 10 more in your car, and 10 more in your office. If you use other Bluetooth devices such as headsets, speakers or wearables, these connections may decrease the amount of Flics you can use at the same time.
With NFC you always have to have the smartphone in your hand and
scan your tags, considering that you scan it right and don't have
to rescan it. A lot of people don't find NFC tags easy enough to
use them in their everyday life.
With Flic on the other hand you can launch your actions with a simple press of a button, as long as the smartphone is somewhere nearby. The button interface is simple enough for (almost) everyone.
The outside has a custom silicon rubbery coating that gives Flic an exclusive feel. The insides are made of durable high-quality plastics.
