When you have the Shortcut Labs Flic, you can do just about anything. Well, as far as technological items go anyway. When you press it once, you can turn the lights on or off, press it twice and you can probably turn on your TV, and when you hold it down you can even immediately order for a pizza to be delivered to your home. This smart button does those things and more.
The Shortcut Labs Flic is the Epitome of Convenience
What started as an Indiegogo crowdfunding project way back in 2014, the Shortcut Labs Flic is one of those items that actually delivers what it promises, and even more. It integrates to a ton of devices and services. This device is all about the partnerships as Shortcut Labs partnered themselves with Spotify, Philips Hue, Unified Remote, Sonos, IFTTT, Logitech, LIFX, WeMo, Zapler, and even Domino’s. With that last item on the aforementioned list, you can even order pizza with just a press of a button.
With so many things that you can do with it, you might become extremely skeptical with regards to its price right off the bat. But the truth is that it is relatively cheap. Couple its reasonable price tag with its immense array of functionalities and you got yourself a device that is worth every penny spent on it.
Android devices even have about 50 Flic functions at the time of writing, and around 27 for iOS users. As an example, you can make this smart button to function differently depending on how you press on it. With one press, you can turn all of the lights inside your home on or off. With two presses, you can make your phone sound an alarm if you’ve suddenly misplaced it around the house. With a long press, you can even turn on your game console.
You can even put this smart button inside your car. Use it to control phone communications in a safer manner instead of reaching out and fiddling around your smartphone each time when you’re behind the wheel. For instance, one press can immediately send a text to your significant other that you’re on your way home, two presses will call your bosses to tell them you’ll be late for the meeting because traffic is horrible, and with a long hold will let your smartphone activate its text-to-speech function so that it will read your text messages aloud.
The functionalities of the Shortcut Labs Flic are growing and it is easily a massive convenience for a number of reasons. Its reasonably low price to get it won’t hurt your bank account either.
