This button looks gorgeous and i like the idea of magnetic button tho the way it is implemented leaves alot to be desired.
Tested on : HCL/HC2 4.076, 4.080
Let me explain, you can power it by batery or USB connector, battery powered option is about as "good" as Swipe's take on this idea - it makes me think that they threw in batery at the last minute and did not have enough time to make it propertly work.
Mounting i on the wall first and than adding is recommanded as inernal gyroscope will not let you do annything unless device is in its intended position (man it was frustrating)
Lack of anny markings (save for tiny bump in same colour as rest of the device) makes it difficult to see what you are setting it for (settings and controll is done by zones depending on rotation). so practical usage is rather inacurate.
I am not sure if am i therribly lacking in skills and foresigh or what but is ther a way to connect the usb on back of the rotating part of button so that it ... you know ROTATES?
if not than i call failure towards creators of this device.
