CES 2018: Fibaro Adds HomeKit Compatibility to 'The Button'

Fibaro today announced a new version of its popular Z-Wave control device called, "The Button," which will work with Apple's HomeKit products.

The Button, which is less than two inches in size, is a new battery-powered multi-touch HomeKit device that is designed to allow users to activate a HomeKit scene.


No bridge, hub, or gateway is required to use The Button, allowing it to integrate with any HomeKit setup. The Button can be programmed with up to three different actions activated with a single click, two clicks, or a long press.

When pressed, The Button has a buzz feature that provides audible feedback and confirmation of which scene was activated via a single buzz, a double buzz, or a long buzz.

Available in red, white, and black, The Button will be available for purchase for $59.99 starting during the first quarter of 2018. Additional colors will be introduced later in the year.

I'm confused. I already have HomeKit light my house up when I return home. I can shut it all down when I leave. I can tell HomeKit "good night" and it will prepare for bed time.

...All *with my voice* on my watch or my phone and not returning to hit a button somewhere. Why do we need this?

Who DOESN’T need a friendly Big Red Button?

Just waiting for my HomeKit compatible Volcano Island and Sharks with Fricken Lasers.

Because it has nothing to do with Z-Wave. The author just used it to mention that Fibaro has had something like this for years in their Z-Wave version and now they made a HomeKit version of this previously Z-Wave product.

So it's simply and only a HomeKit product.

So lazy reporting, got it.
