CES HomeKit Products

It’s not a complete list but TechCrunch shared some new HomeKit products which include:

  • New Wemo Light Switches from Belkin that start at US$39.99
  • A new smart outlet from ConnectSense, allowing customers to monitor the power consumption of each outlet
  • Kwikset is expanding its Premis lineup of touchscreen smart locks with a new model
  • Mighton plans to launch its Avia smart lock in May
  • The Nanoleaf Canvas is a modular smart lighting system. A Nanoleaf Starter Kit costs US$248
  • Netatmo is announcing a Smart Video Doorbell allowing customers to see, on their phone, who’s ringing the doorbell. It’s also announcing a Smart Indoor Air Quality Monitor that measures air quality, humidity level, temperature and noise.

More HomeKit products mean a more integrated home, with products that aren’t competing against each other.
