Launches integration with Icontrol Networks
New York, USA and Helsinki, Finland – July 27 2016 – The Button Corporation, creator of bttn®, the world’s first internet connected physical push button, announces certified device integration with Icontrol Networks, the leader in the smart home industry.
From today, bttn is certified and compatible with any Icontrol-powered solution. By pushing the bttn, the user triggers a pre-defined action or chain of actions inside the smart home. Some common uses include:
- Push the “good night switch” bttn to lock doors, turn off lights, activate video surveillance, and lower room temperatures for the night. Press the same bttn again in the morning to wake up the house.
- Easily activate or disable the security alarm mode with the bttn.
- Toggle the living room lighting between normal and TV watching modes.
- Check-in bttn for children – press to lock the doors and send an “I’m home” SMS to parents.
“We’re proud to partner with an industry pioneer such as Icontrol,” says Harri Rautio, founder and CEO of The Button Corporation. “With this integration we can offer the joy and convenience of the simplest internet user interface in the world to smart homes across North America. People no longer need to navigate menus of various user interfaces to kick off common actions or trigger repetitious tasks such as arming and disarming the house. Pushing our bttn is so simple that all family members, from the youngest to the oldest, can do it.”
Earlier this summer bttn launched the all-new bttn Mini® which is half the size of the original bttn. Furthermore, all bttns can be equipped with two gestures – the regular press and the long press – meaning bttns can perform two separate actions. Bttns communicate their actions to the internet via built-in mobile data, Wi-Fi or SIGFOX.
