Meet Switch, the first HomeKit product from iDevices

Susie Ochs | Jan. 6, 2015
HomeKit was teased as part of iOS 8 way back in June at WWDC, but we're just now seeing the first crop of devices at International CES. iDevices' new product, Switch, looks simple enough--it's a little box that you plug into an outlet, and then plug another thing in. But its simplicity is a great illustration of HomeKit as a whole.

I was really impressed by Switch. A connected plug is not a new idea, but between the easy setup, attractive app, and the ability to control it with Siri without even opening the app, Switch is a great example of how HomeKit can smooth out some of the bumps in your road to a connected home. Plus, with a price point of $49.99, the barrier to entry is low. Switch will be available in the middle of this year.
