"The Button" by Fibaro

One button - countless possibilities.

Press the FIBARO button and turn the light on and off, open the blinds or start and stop complex scenes.

Switches and buttons are the most intuitive type of control - perfect for people who do not always want to use their smartphones with a smart home system. Especially for older people, this button can make everyday life easier. When used as a "panic button" messages are sent to contacts immediately.
