Fibaro ships the HomeKit compatible Button

Fibaro is shipping the latest product in its existing HomeKit-compatible device ecosystem: The Button. Previously available in a version with Z-Wave technology, the wireless, battery-powered, control device is now available as a separate version compatible with Apple HomeKit.

HomeKit is a framework that allows control of compatible home automation devices through iOS and Siri. The Button doesn’t require a gateway, hub or bridge to connect. Though it’s less  than two inches in size, it can be programmed to turn off the lights with one click, lock a smart door lock with two clicks, or trigger a customized scene by holding it down. 

The Button can activate scenes, synchronized actions involving several devices, such as a “goodbye scene” which closes the blinds, locks the door, turns off electrical devices and sets your lights to away mode, or a “good morning scene” which opens the blinds and turns on the lights when pressed. It’s also equipped with a buzz feature that provides audible confirmation of a proper click with one buzz, two buzzes or a lengthened buzz. This feature can be turned on or off

The Button is available now in red, white and black for $59.95 from as well as from
