New ZemiSmart 4-Button Smart Wireless Switch Announced

ZemiSmart today announced preorders for their latest smart home product, the Wireless 4-Button Scene Switch. The new device comes in dimensions that match US switches, and comes with a magnetic wall plate with the four button switch detachable from said wall plate.

The new device uses Zigbee 3.0, so if you’re using Apple Home, you’ll need to use it via one of the company’s own Zigbee hubs. This includes not only their original HomeKit hub (review HERE, video HERE), but also their more recent Matter compatible Hub (review HERE, video HERE) that’s not only a Zigbee hub, but a Thread Border Routerand a Matter Controller for the Tuya ecosystem. For power, the wireless switch uses a single CR2450 coin cell battery (not included), which should give around 2 years of service before needing to be replaced.

The design will of course draw comparisons to the Philips Hue Wireless Dimmer Switch, which features the same four button layout, and magnetic wall plate. However, the big difference between the two is that ZemiSmart state each button is exposed to Apple Home with the standard single, double, and long press actions. If you’re an owner of the Hue Dimmer, you’ll know that it only exposes a single press action to Apple Home, although to be fair, it can do a lot more with other Hue products, just not in the HomeKit ecosystem.

You can preorder the new ZemiSmart 4-button switch from the company’s own website for US$19.90 + $2.00 shipping (to the US), with delivery beginning thirty days from today’s announcement.
