Bttn expands to the biggest connected home market in the world

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.
