Connect Flic buttons without a hub?

I have a few Flic button used as “Call for assistance” buttons for my elderly mother. They trigger Alexa routines that announce to all Echo devices “Assistance required at … (location of button)”.

I set them up without a hub, so they rely on her mobile phone being on and having the Flic app running - which is not really satisfactory.

They are Bluetooth devices, so is it not possible to connect them directly to my Hone Assistant host using a Bluetooth stick? … much in the same way that ZigBee devices are connected via a ZigBee stick?

I did not set it up yet, but this GitHub - pschmitt/home-assistant-addons: Home Assistant addons by pschmitt should help you.

Thanks, I’ll check it out
