With the Logitech Pop Home Switch, Everyone in the Family Can Control
the Smart Home
NEWARK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today Logitech (SIX:LOGN) (NASDAQ:LOGI) introduced the Logitech
Pop Home Switch Starter Pack and Pop
Add-On Home Switch, putting smart home control at your fingertips.
After initial set-up, with the push of a button, everyone in the home
can control smart home devices to set the scene with lighting presets,
Sonos® playlists and more.
Logitech Pop Home Switch is compatible with a wide range of lighting and
smart home products including lighting, door locks, and blinds from
companies like LIFX, Phillips Hue™, Lutron, and INSTEON®, and you can
mix and match product controls on an individual switch.
Each switch can trigger three actions using different presses – a single
press, a double press, and a long press. For example, you can set
individual switches to turn smart products on/off, adjust brightness and
scene presets, or quickly access your favorite Sonos music playlists and
Setup is simple. The Pop app (available for Android® and iPhone®) scans
your Wi-Fi network for compatible devices in the home. Then, you can
assign individual devices to a switch or combine multiple devices into a
single trigger using Recipes — simple combinations of product controls
you can set up using the Pop app. So, if you want to set the mood with
lighting and the music turned up for date night, you can do that easily
with a single press of Pop. Or if your kids want the music tuned to a
specific playlist or the lights bright to help them concentrate when
they’re studying, they can easily do that with another press.
Plus, pairing your Pop Home Switch with a Logitech Harmony hub-based
remote expands the types of devices that Pop can control exponentially
with the addition of every entertainment product Harmony can control.
The Pop Home Switch can be used to trigger one-touch Harmony Activities,
such as “Watch TV” or “Listen to Music”, combining both home
entertainment and smart home devices like lights, locks, blinds, and
“Sometimes you just want to set the mood for movie night without opening
multiple apps to turn down the lights, turn on the TV and the sound bar
and draw the blinds.” said Renee Niemi, head of the Smart Home business
at Logitech. “With Pop, you can do all that with a press of the switch.
It makes the smart home simple and accessible for everyone — not just
the person with the smartphone.”
The Logitech Pop Home Switch Starter Pack and the Logitech Pop Add-on
Home Switch are expected to be available in the U.S. in August. The
suggested retail price of the Pop Home Switch Starter Pack is $99.99 and
the Pop Add-On Home Switch suggested retail price is $39.99. The Pop app
will be free for both Android and iPhone users, and is expected to be
available in the coming weeks. For more information, please visit Logitech.com,
