Smart Home Devices that work with Apple HomeKit

For those who love simplicity, Apple's HomeKit platform now has a full ecosystem of compatible devices covering nearly every category of today's smart home. HomeKit products have the distinction of being some of the most secure home automation products on the market due to Apple's strict encryption requirements, making it an easy choice for those concerned about privacy and security.

To get started with HomeKit, all you need is a recent iPhone, iPad or iPod touch, and one or more devices from the categories below. And then you can start saying "Hey, Siri...it's movie time!" and your home automation wishes will magically come true! (Oh, and you can mix and match products as you like…they all work with HomeKit.)

This page is updated regularly, most recent update: August 13, 2018. This guide showcases products that will work in many parts of the world, some of which are U.S.-only. Look for additional country/region links to localized versions.

SMART LIGHTING

Smart light bulbs and other kinds of smart lighting are the easiest way to start automating your home. Just screw them in or plug them in, link them up to your iOS device and you're up and running! In the past, most smart lighting has required a hub or bridge device to operate, which usually meant buying a starter kit...but some of today's offerings run independently.

SMART LOCKS / SECURITY / CAMERAS

Smart locks and home security cameras are very popular right now in home automation. And, trust us, once you install a smart lock and let it unlock for you when you arrive home, you'll never know how you lived without one! Some locks, like Friday and August, just replace the inner portion of the lock and are great for renters. Others replace the entire deadbolt assembly, sometimes requiring a re-key but offering features like an outside touchscreen for code entry.

SMART THERMOSTATS / HEATING & A/C

OK, we'll admit, the Nest thermostat essentially launched the modern smart home industry. Sadly, it isn't HomeKit compatible. But don't fret, there are many sleek and sexy smart thermostats that are!

AIRPLAY 2 SPEAKERS, RECEIVERS & WHOLE-HOUSE AUDIO

If you've never experienced having music play throughout your home with just a voice command, you're seriously missing out. Today, AirPlay 2 makes sending audio to multiple speakers even easier and more reliable than ever. And, you can send separate audio to different groups of speakers. AirPlay 2 speakers and systems now appear in Apple’s Home app for easier monitoring and control.

NOTE: The speakers above (except HomePod) have been mentioned as having upcoming AirPlay 2 capabilities and will most likely be updated through a software update. These products are currently available on the market and can be purchased in advance of their AirPlay 2 feature rollouts.


FIRE AND SMOKE DETECTORS

Detecting smoke and carbon monoxide in the home is important, of course. But ensuring that you get an alert about it if you're away from home is even more important. Be notified immediately on your iOS device if there's a problem at home with one of these detection devices from First Alert.

SENSORS (TEMPERATURE, AIR QUALITY, WATER LEAK & MORE)

Just like detecting fires early, being able to detect improper air quality and water leaks is equally important. Especially for vacation homes in cold climates...burst pipes can easily cause thousands of dollars of damage incredibly quickly. These sensors run on Bluetooth, with batteries that last months at a time and alert you when they need replacing.

SPRINKLERS AND IRRIGATION CONTROL

While you might not think of it as part of the smart home, the great outdoors (i.e., your backyard) deserves special attention, too. If you're feeling that the grass or the flowers need just a little bit of extra watering at the moment, giving them a nice sprinkling is just a "Hey Siri" or app button press away!

Elgato Eve Aqua Smart Water Controller

Orbit has promised a HomeKit-enabled B-Hyve sprinkler timer and hose faucet controller but does not yet have compatible products in stores or online. We'll post information and links once it becomes widely available.


SMART BUTTONS

While commanding your HomeKit home via Siri and apps is really cool, sometimes there's nothing like having an actual physical button to press when you need to get something done and voice or apps don't make sense. These buttons are great to put right where the control makes sense, like activating smart lighting or appliances on smart outlets.

There are many HomeKit-compatible products that have been promised by manufacturers like LIFX, Netatmo, Canary, Ring, GE, Kuna and others...but they haven't quite hit the market yet. Some companies are re-evaluating existing product plans due to Apple's announcement this summer that it will be easier to make devices HomeKit compatible, while maintaining the high security and privacy standards. We'll keep you updated and add to this guide as new products hit the market.
