Meross, the famous manufacturer of smart home products, is getting closer and closer to HomeKit. If we recently saw how it updated its diffuser to integrate it into the Apple platform, it is now doing the same by launching a new version of its connected button for HomeKit compatible blinds.
Meross has released a HomeKit-enabled version of its Connected Switch that adds to the existing model, which works with Google Homen Amazon Alexa and Samsung SmartThings. Now this button can be used from Apple’s Home app. Device designed to control blinds or rolling shutters.
Blinds controlled by HomeKit
Meross has released a new roller blind control switch that can be used with HomeKit. A model which was already available in its catalog but which only offered compatibility with the Google ecosystem, with Amazon Alexa and Samsung SmartThings.
Now the Switch is also available in a HomeKit version, so when buying it you have to be very careful about the platforms it is compatible with. Just look on the box or the link to see if it works with HomeKit or with Alexa and Google Home.
The switch for blinds is called Meross MRS100HK and for installation it requires a neutral conductor and a connection to the home Wi-Fi network via the 2.4 GHz network.
With the Meross MRS100HK switch you can control the roller shutters in your home. Raise and lower them, leave them at a certain height or integrate them into scenes with other connected systems in the house. In addition to HomeKit integration or being able to control it with Google Home and Alexa, the Meross MRS100HK also works via the Meross app available on the Google Play Store and App Store.

The HomeKit-compatible Meross switch is now available for $39.99, or about 36 euros to change in the Meross online store, while on Amazon you can find the two-pack of switches for 40.99 euros, yes, in the Alexa and Google Home version.
