I'm having a similar issue with one of my Lifx lights - I have 28 downlights and I've successfully connected groups of them to several Flics via my hub. Everything worked fine on the first day, then one of the lights stopped responding via the LAN protocol. In the app it appeared in the list as an IP address rather than its name. I tried resetting the light, assigning new ip address and changing the name but no dice. I replaced the light with a spare and successfully got it working with the Flic for that room. The next day, a different light in the same group of lights dropped off the list with the same behaviour. Cloud control works fine. Control of the light works fine via the lifx app, which I assume is working via LAN as it's pretty fast.
At this stage I'm not sure if it's a Lifx issue or a Flic issue - I could replace the light again but at 100 dollary-doos that's an expensive troubleshoot. With 28 lights controlled across nine Flics and a single Hub, is it possible I'm pushing a device count limit?
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.
