POP home switch by logitech


Computer peripherals maker Logitech launched a battery operated, wireless smart home switch called “POP”.  They’re labeling it a “home” switch instead of “light” switch because they’re promoting it as both a light and music controller, compatible with a wide variety of lighting and audio systems.


The switch let’s you press once, twice or press-and-hold.  It runs on Bluetooth and requires a Bluetooth/WIFI bridge, included.

I know by experience that Logitech is good at making devices with incredibly long battery lives.  They claim 5-6 years for the POP.  With lifetimes that long, it becomes realistic to think that most lighting controls will go wireless, even commercial installations.  There is tremendous cost savings potential to ditching line-voltage controls.
