I just got a Flic Hub and I have about nine buttons. No button is greater than 25 feet away from the hub with very little impediment. Several of the buttons seem to enter standby much more frequently than others and when they do, they become very slow to respond if they respond at all. I've replaced the batteries and it doesn't seem to help. All in all, the Flic system has been great when it works, but super frustrating as it works so sporadically.
Personally, I have the patience to keep tweaking and trouble shooting , but when my wife gets up at 2am to feed the baby, pushes the button and the light does nothing... She's furious with ME. I got the hub specifically to make this more reliable, but in my experience, the hub hasn't really contributed much of anything.
Thank you so much for your feedback! We really appreciate it :)
We're really glad you're enjoying the Flic Hub. Let us know if there's anything we can help you with in the future.

The link shows the following which is different to the comments you made, is the current link data correct? I want to check for firmware update.
"When should I do a "user data restore" or a "factory reset" on my Hub?
If you ever forget your password to the Flic Hub then the only way you can access it again is to push the restore button on the Hub for 1-2 seconds. We hope you don't forget the password as doing a user data restore will wipe all your paired Flic’s and their existing configurations. You will need to therefore reconfigure all these after a restore.
In case something goes terribly wrong and the Hub is not working properly, you can factory reset the Hub back to default settings. This is achieved by pressing the restore button for 20-25 seconds.
The difference between this and the "user data restore" is that factory reset will also reset the firmware to version 1.0, so if you were using features added in new updates, you will need to update your Hub in order to use these. The Hub will automatically update itself if it has a Internet connection, but it might take up to 24 hours. If you don’t want to wait, you can connect to the Hub using the Flic app and manually trigger the update, or push the pin hole button between 2-5 seconds to initiate a firmware update. The LED will begin to blink slowly to indicate that it is currently downloading and installing a new firmware version. "
yes, i have used the Play sound file or play basic sounds on the hub. The updates of the play sound action appear with the new and latest updates. Sometimes while using it creates an issue like iTunes error 5105 which occurs. Sometimes this issue occurs due to the updates issue.
I have the same problem, I just bought a flic from Amazon for IFTTT and it doesnt work at all. At the moment my flic is just unusable junk. If you cant fix that Ill send it straight to Amazon to get my money back. Good that I didnt bought more flics as initially intended.
I'd forgotten about this post. I received my Flic Hub quite a while ago and was unable to use it for my whole-house solution of replacing light switches with Flic buttons. For me, it was a complete waste of money, and I'm upset it didn't fit my needs.
Have there been any updates to the Flic Hub software to allow scaling to the number of Flic buttons and all possible configurations? I actually do use every press state for each button and more.
Is it possible the range has been improved through a firmware update? My biggest problem from my very first use of the Flic Hub was its extremely limited range compared to various versions of my Raspberry Pis. I'm not sure how 64 devices would be even feasible considering just 1 device would quickly go out of range. It's not that I mean to carry my buttons around the house, just that I'd have to buy about 10 Flic Hubs to cover the area of 4 Raspberry Pis from my initial range testing.
