Philips’ Hue Lights will get HomeKit support and be en route to you this fall.
Philips has also stated that the smart lights you already own will work with HomeKit and you won’t have to replace them to get them working with HomeKit.
The company released the following statement on its Facebook page:
Starting this fall we will take your lighting experience to the next level and unlock new features for your existing Hue lights. Stay tuned to learn how we will support you with any necessary upgrade to your system. More details will follow from September 2015 onwards.
HomeKit will include Siri-based support, which should allow voice controls for your HomeKit devices.
Philips was listed as a HomeKit partner when Apple showed off the platform at its 2014 Worldwide Developer Conference, but until now hasn’t said when that support will be coming. HomeKit compatible devices started shipping from Ecobee, Elgato, iHome, Insteon, and Lutron last week.
Stay tuned for additional details as they become available.
