Next generation Apple HomeKit range launching in Apple stores
LightwaveRF plc ("LightwaveRF" or the "Company"), the leading smart home solutions provider, announces that its next generation Apple HomeKit certified product range, for controlling smart devices with iOS apps and Siri voice commands, will be released on 3 October 2017.
LightwaveRF's next generation Apple HomeKit range will be on sale in Apple retail stores in the UK and the UAE, online via apple.com and at other selected retail outlets. There will be an extensive marketing campaign to publicise the new range to both current and potential new users.
This next generation product range, which is now Apple HomeKit certified, is the culmination of an extensive two-year research and development programme. The new range of products comprises the Link Plus, Smart Dimmers and a Smart Socket. Link Plus connects to a standard WiFi router and controls the integrated LightwaveRF smart home system for lighting, heating, power and security. End-point devices are controlled through both Apple Home and LightwaveRF apps and via Siri, Alexa and Google Assistant for voice control. Link Plus supports the current LightwaveRF product range, as well as the new range of devices, which feature two-way communications and comprehensive energy monitoring capabilities. The products are future proofed by remote over-the-air update capability.
Commenting, Andrew Pearson, CEO said: "This is a further exciting development for LightwaveRF. We look forward to working with Apple as a HomeKit technical partner and a supplier to its retail outlets. The exposure and awareness from this partnership should enhance our market visibility and greatly benefit our customers via easier management of their smart home solutions. We look forward to expanding our relationship with Apple as we launch further HomeKit compatible devices for both the UK and international markets".
