Logitech today announced a new single-button device called the Pop Home Switch, designed to simplify the control of multiple smart home products.

The interactive accessory company says the idea behind the Pop is to free up control of smart devices so that anyone in the home can operate them regardless of whether they have a smartphone and the associated app for each device.

Logitech Pop Switch
The palm-sized, wall-mounted switch connects wirelessly to a Bluetooth hub that plugs into a power outlet, and enables users to activate up to three pre-programmed moods with a single, double, or triple press.

A companion mobile app scans local Wi-Fi networks for compatible devices and allows users to create a recipe for each. For example, a recipe called "morning" could be programmed to open the drapes and begin a particular music playlist with a single click of the button.

The Pop supports a range of smart home devices, like Phillips Hue lights, Sonos speakers, LIFX connected bulbs, August locks, and Lutron smart drapes.

Logitech's Starter Pack comes with two wall-mounted buttons and a single hub, and additional Pops can be bought to increase the flexibility of the system.

The Pop Home Switch Starter Pack costs $99.99 and additional switches cost $39.99. The device works with both iOS and Android; pre-orders begin today and the product will start shipping later this month.

Original post or the Logitech website says nothing about HomeKit anywhere, so I would assume it's not compatible. If they paid into the HomeKit program and jumped through Apple's hoops, I'm sure they would be advertising it.

Not sure if this is sarcasm, but in all seriousness, if your lights are Hue, they make a great wall switch already. I had several rooms in my house without outlets controlled by wall switches. The Hue setup is way better than turning on each lamp separately or rewiring the rooms.
