iPort has debuted the iPort Express, billed as the “world’s first” WiFi keypad for use with Sonos systems.

iPort’s newest magnetic keyboard is designed to offer a direct connection to any Sonos device in the home.

Described as “fast to use than the Sonos app” by the manufacturer, the keypad allows users to play/pause, skip songs, change volume, access Sonos favourite and whole-home Sonos systems (when grouped in party mode) when paired with a Sonos device.

The keypad offers up to 6 months of power via a rechargeable lithium polymer battery.

Users can either keep the magnetic keypad on magnetic household device of their choice or mount it on the wall using an included wall-plate adaptor.

The iPort Express can be set up via the iPort Connect app.

The product is available in the UK through the distributor Habitech.
