Next Generation POP Provides Even More Connected Home Control with
the Push of a Button
LAUSANNE, Switzerland & NEWARK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#AppleHomeKit–Logitech (SIX:LOGN) (NASDAQ:LOGI) today announced its next generation
programmable button for simple smart home control—the POP
Smart Button. The new POP Smart Button will work with Apple HomeKit,
expanding the ability to control even more connected devices and provide
all of the features and functionality offered in the first generation.
With just a push, you can turn off the lights, lock the door, turn up
the heat, and more without ever moving from your couch.
“Today’s smart home is about bridging simplicity with a more shared
experience,” said Renee Niemi, vice president and general manager of
Logitech Smart Home. “We are passionate about enabling customers to get
the most versatility and entertainment within their connected homes.
Adding Apple HomeKit to POP allows us to provide even more ways to
simplify access to your HomeKit-enabled home for the entire family to
The Logitech POP Smart Button Kit includes one smart button with three
gestures to customize your control plus the POP bridge needed to connect
the button onto a WiFi network. Users can then extend control throughout
their home with additional POP Add-on Smart Buttons, available in four
colors—White, Alloy, Coral, and Teal. Each POP bridge can connect to an
unlimited number of buttons.
Using POP Smart Button with Apple HomeKit is easy when paired with
Apple’s Home app—POP already comes pre-paired, so discovering the device
with the Home app is simple and secure. Just configure the scenes you
want and let POP do the rest. Whether turning down the lights to get
ready for bed or opening your smart blinds to expose some daylight, POP
gives easy control to the whole family.
POP Smart Button can also be used with non-HomeKit devices such as Sonos
wireless music systems, or Logitech Harmony hub-based remote controls by
using the companion Logitech POP app. In addition to compatibility with
Apple HomeKit, the Logitech POP Smart Button offers the ability to
control Osram lighting, Hunter Douglas and Lutron blinds, and more,
extending interoperability beyond existing integrations including
August, Philips Hue, and Logitech Harmony.
The Logitech POP Smart Button Kit ($59.95) and POP Add-on Smart Button
($39.95) will be available exclusively at Apple stores and Apple.com soon.
Availability in other retailers will come later this year. If you own
the first generation POP Home Switch, you can update your software to
take advantage of new non-HomeKit integrations. For more information,
