Sylvania announces new hub-free HomeKit light bulbs

Sylvania and LEDVANCE have announced the first standalone smart bulb compatible with Apple’s HomeKit ecosystem, providing a lighting solution that can be integrated with Siri, Apple’s Home and other third-party HomeKit apps without requiring the use of a separate hub. The Sylvania Smart Multicolor A19 bulb can be screwed into any standard light socket and will use a Bluetooth low-energy connection to communicate with HomeKit. It can be controlled directly from Siri or any HomeKit-compatible app, and it can be added to scenes and other HomeKit automation routines. The Sylvania Smart Multicolor A19 bulb is expected to be available on Amazon in early 2017 in the U.S., and pricing has not yet been announced.
