#2 The gift of convenience

What if father's received the gift of convenience with Fibaro's HomeKit-enabled multi-controller, called 'The Button'?! 

The Button is a small, HomeKit-enabled wireless control device that is super intuitive for anyone to use as a simple scene controller for other HomeKit-enabled devices. Dad can use The Button to trigger actions and scenes locally around the house.

For example, he can trigger his honey I'm home scene with three clicks of the button to power on his connected outdoor speakers, along with lighting and maybe an electric fireplace to enjoy some quality family time.
