Ladies and gentlemen, Logitech launches a new device: the Pop Home Switch. Let’s find out more about how it works and when should we use it. First of all, you should know that the Pop Home Switch s a broad button about the size of your palm. It can be connected to a hub that will plug into an outlet via Bluetooth LE.
The application works either you are using Android or iOS. All you have to do is to simply scan your Wi-Fi network for compatible devices and then link them to Pop. This way, you will be able to use your devices in an easier way. The device has support for high-tech home gadgets, such as Phillips Hue light or August locks.
Even if it has only one button, it can be programmed to do three things by double or longer pressing. You will be able to turn the lights on or off, activate the option for a single room or for the whole house.
So why Logitech decided to keep it simple? Well, the main reason is because it is easier to use a device which has only one button, but is able to do more things just by pressing it. Secondly, there are more and more apps associated with smart home control so it would be really hard for the user to have one device for each released app.
Of course, there are some people who use their smartphones to link services but this can be an issue too. Imagine you have friends coming over or a babysitter. You can’t give them your phone. This way, Logitech’s Pop Home Switch seems to be the perfect option.
We are waiting to see if this gadget will have more improvements or if it will stop at three actions for a device. Pop Home Switch is going on sale in the United States this month. You can buy the starter pack, which has two Pops and a hub for 99.99 dollars. If you want additional Pops, they are 39.99 dollars each.
