LOGITECH POP $195.87 (starter kit), amazon.com.au
The Logitech Pop comes as a starter kit, which seems pricey, but you get two buttons plus the bridge required to connect them up. This system gives the buttons a greater range than Bluetooth options, so you have more freedom to place them around the home. Pop is quite big, making it easy to find and press in a rush. Setup takes a few minutes; you need to install the bridge first, but thereafter buttons can be added with a press. Adding commands in the app is easy, though you have to manually scan for devices first. Standard Pop commands are on/off with the same press, though an advanced mode allows you to set on and off actions with different presses, and you can also set multiple actions to each of them. Pop supports many smart home devices within its own app, but it can also control Home-Kit-compatible products too.
T3 SAYS The Logitech Pop is a highly capable smart home button, though you’ll have to pay extra in the first instance to start using it.
