Can this remote act as a home button does on the iPhone?

I'm trying to find a device to avoid having to use the home button to activate things like Siri, and no one at Apple can tell me if there is a device. Someone in sales pointed me toward this, but it wasn't clear that the remote could function as a home button.

    If you press and bolt the center button for a few seconds than Siri will activate but it will. Not close apps like the home button does ( Just for Siri)
