Logitech Pop buttons quickly control connected devices


Logitech thinks smart homes are too complicated,
so they created the Pop. These buttons look simple, but can actually
be very powerful, when paired with connected devices like Philips Hue and LIFX bulbs. They come in a range of colors, and a starter
pack includes two and the hub, which plugs directly into a wall socket. Setting up the Pop is easy – the iOS or
Android app will guide you through the process, which includes plugging in the hub, pairing
it with your phone, connecting it to your Wi-Fi network and then adding Pop buttons. It’s incredibly easy to do, and the instructions
are easy to follow. Once you’ve added a Pop, you can create
recipes for it. During setup, your Hub scanned your Wi-Fi
network for smart home devices. Mine found my Phillips Hue and LIFX lights
easily, as well as my Sonos Play 1. I had to add in my Logitech Harmony Hub afterward,
but that was easy, too, and only asked me to log in using my account. With all the devices added, I just dragged
items to the Pop’s control screen, combining smart devices however I wanted, and setting
the desired state for each. It was easy to create recipes where my home
entertainment system would turn on and the lights would dim with a single press of a
Pop, and I also assigned a single lamp to a different one. Thanks to the Harmony Hub, I could even control
my air conditioning unit, turning it on and off with a long press. You can even connect your IFTTT account for
more options. What Pop does is take the sting out of smart
home management. With a range of connected gadgets, it’s
easy to get mired in the various control apps, and in setting up activities and actions and
trying to get it all working together. Pope is great at streamlining everything from
setup to control, making smart home control as easy as flicking a light switch, but adding
portability and a bit of style as well. Logitech’s Pop starter kit, including a
hub and two Pop buttons, details for $99.99. Additional Pops are also available for $39.99
each.

  1. Really dumb. So now, instead of just using your phone which is free to use and already in your pocket, you want us to carry this around us while at home. Good luck with that huge loss tax deduction fagolas
