Smart Home Innovation Flic Twist a Kickstarter Success
Flic Twist: The Wireless Dial for your Smart Home, is bound to become a reality as its Kickstarter was fully funded in just 4 minutes. The project immediately raised its ask and well over 1600 people supported the project within its first hour. Flic twist is a controller that makes smart home features accessible for the whole family. The product was awarded for its innovation height before the release as a CES Innovation Award Honoree.
Shortcut Labs, a Swedish Consumer Electronics company and inventors of the smart button, just released their newest innovation for smart home control on Kickstarter. The launch campaign for Flic Twist raised $300k during its first hour.
Flic Twist is a new take on a controller for smart home technology such as smart lights and connected speakers. It is best described as a combination of a wireless smart button and a wall dimmer. Yet, it also features lights along its perimeter that guide users as they interact with it
Committing to the upcoming Matter standard, that all the major smart home ecosystems are behind for cross-compatibility, Flic Twist has the potential to control pretty much anything.
Flic Twist was awarded the CES Innovation Award Honoree before the launch of the Kickstarter campaign. The main innovations with Flic Twist are in its software. It can manipulate simple interactions such as pushing and twisting into very sophisticated dimming journeys. For example, users can engage wall plugs or routines as they dim up the lights or have the product blend smoothly between different light scenes. Advanced users can use a single Flic Twist to alter the states of up to 12 different things. These can include anything from dimmable lights, volumes in different rooms, playing playlists from your Spotify library, IFTTT commands, and much more.
Flic Twist brings simplicity to the smart home and the entire family instead of voice commands that need to be remembered or apps that need to be installed.
Flic Twist is Shortcut Labs’ fourth product launched as a crowdfunding campaign.
"We're thrilled that Flic Twist seems to be just as successful as our previous products, if not more so even. Flic Twist is very innovative and unlike anything else on the market. It's a special product, and we were not certain it would resonate with everyone. We are unique in combining simple interaction modes such as just pushing or turning, with extreme possibilities for customization and personalization. It seems we hit the right chord with Flic Twist." says Joacim Westlund Prändel, one of Shortcut Labs's founders.
Flic Twist is available for pre-order prices on Kickstarter for another month.
Flic is a Swedish tech company behind the world’s smartest button with products including Flic, Powered by Flic and Flic Hub. With simplicity at its heart, Flic, is creating a single, trusted communication point between people and the services they love.
