Logitech has recently unveiled its newest smart home product. The POP Smart Button is the first programmable button that’s compatible with Apple’s HomeKit protocol.
With the push of a button
The first-generation device arrived last year and offered a quick and easy way for users to quickly control their smart home devices. But adding in HomeKit compatibility opens the door to a number of new and interesting automation ideas.
Each button can be programmed with three specific gestures that can each control different devices or even to activate a HomeKit Scene. The buttons need to be paired to a Smart Bridge, but just one is needed.
Along with HomeKit devices, there are a wide number of other smart home devices as well.
Available soon from Apple
A starter kit and add-on button will be available through Apple soon.
A POP Smart Button Kit will add-on button will be available at Apple Stores and through Apple.com soon. The kit will retail for $59.95 while each add-on button costs $39.95.
Buyers can select from one of four add-on button white, alloy, coral, and teal.
The devices arrive at other retailers later this year.
While current first-generation POP owners won’t be able to take advantage of HomeKit support, they will soon be able to use even more integrations with other smart home devices.
