Growing list of devices compatible with Apple’s HomeKit

Jenny McGrath

Last year, the first HomeKit products with Apple’s MFi (“Made for iPhone”) certification went on sale or up for pre-order. The certification ensures that these smart home devices have an authentication chip and have undergone rigorous testing to get Apple’s official seal of approval. At the Worldwide Developers Conference on June 13, the company announced its app, called Home, which rolled out with iOS 10 this week. Home lets you control all your HomeKit-compatible devices through the app or by using your iPhone’s Control Center.

At the WWDC two years ago, Apple announced some big partners for its smart-home platform, including Philips, Haier, and Honeywell. Devices from these manufacturers have slowly trickled out since then. Now, you can ask Siri to turn on your Philips Hue lights or check to see if your August door lock is secure. However, if you want to control these remotely, you’ll need an Apple TV to act as a bridge.

At Apple’s September event this year, Tim Cook said Apple is expecting 100 more compatible devices to be released this year, with more to come in the future. Could we finally see a HomeKit-enabled security camera? Below is a list of all the HomeKit-certified devices — we’ll update it as more come along.
