As before, you can set up the Pop button to do multiple actions like turning on lights, security systems and other things. It already works with non-Apple devices like Sonos music systems, SmartThings devices, Hunter Douglas blinds and Logitech's own Harmony remotes. HomeKit support gives users a few more options, including Apple TV support and a wider range of peripherals. It comes pre-paired with HomeKit out of the box, so setup is relatively simple, too.
Once set up, you can run three different programs with one button by single-pressing, double-pressing and long-pressing. If that doesn't cut it, you can simply add extra buttons. Owners of earlier Pop Home Switches can update the software to get compatibility with all new Logitech-supported home devices, but not Apple's HomeKit, unfortunately.
Logitech's Pop Smart Button kit starts at $60 including the bridge and one button, and extra buttons (in white, alloy, coral and teal) run $40 each. As mentioned, they'll be exclusively at Apple Stores and Apple.com soon, and coming to other retailers "later this year," Logitech says.
