“HomeKit certification has been available for just a few months and we already have dozens of partners who have committed to bringing HomeKit accessories to market,” Apple spokeswoman Trudy Muller told The Journal. “We’re looking forward to the first ones coming next month.”
Apple unveiled HomeKit during its Worldwide Developers Conference last year, and introduced its hardware certification program in November. Other than that, the company has been fairly quiet on the project, leading many to question its ability to execute its plans for the platform.
Whats Apple has to say about HomeKit:
“We are excited to be part of the next step in making home automation a reality, in a safe and integrated way,” said Philip’s Eric Rondolat. “HomeKit will allow us to further enhance the Hue lighting experience by making it simpler to securely pair devices and control them using Siri.”
