Starting today, Logitech's HomeKit-compatible programmable POP Smart Button can be purchased exclusively from Apple retail locations in the United States.

The Logitech POP Smart Button is designed to allow any smart device in the home to be controlled through the push of a button, allowing things like lights to be activated without the need for a smartphone.

Connected to a user's HomeKit setup via a bridge, the POP Smart Button supports three customizable gestures, with each bridge able to support multiple buttons. Buttons can be used to activate full HomeKit scenes or simply turn a smart accessory on and off. Each button supports three preset commands, activated with a press, a double press, or a press and hold gesture.

While the POP Smart Button works with HomeKit, it can also be used with other non-HomeKit devices like Sonos wireless speakers or Logitech Harmony hub-based remote controls.

The Logitech POP Smart Button Kit, which includes one bridge and one pre-paired smart button in White or Alloy, is priced at $59.95 and will be available from Apple.com and Apple retail stores today. Additional Add-on Smart Buttons can be purchased for $39.95.

I can already turn my lights on and off with a switch. The switch was $3 at Home Depot. Doesn't need a hub, either.

I feel the same way about these people with their new-fangled "horseless carriages." I can already get around on my feet. Shoes can be as cheap as $30 at Walmart. Doesn't need a key, either.

Get an Amazon Dash button and there you go, saved you 35 bucks and a silly bridge provided you're willing to hook up a much more versatile Raspberry Pi. (don't worry, you can pretty much just get the cheapest one)

Every additional button is 5 instead of 40 bucks. Lol holy ****... Talk about first adopters' price gauging.

They are one of the most evil companies on earth, ripping off customers for decades. You won't find any details on their official forums because they delete threads that point out how they don't support their products after sale, won't honor warranties, and have an army of shills combing through all non-Logitech forums, including this one, doing damage control and posting fake reviews, paying popular websites to post fake reviews, etc. Heck even posting here is likely to get their lawyers after me with a cease and desist.
[doublepost=1495065250][/doublepost]
I had these a year ago and after a few weeks, the buttons became completely unresponsive, after resetting the hub to factory settings, removing each switch from the account, re-adding, just flat out stopped working. I had read at the time others had the same issues and returned them. Not sure if these are different than the original non-HomeKit models though.
Like all their garbage. See my post above.
