Looking for products that compatible with the new Apple HomeKit? Look no further. Here are products that we’ve found that work with Apple HomeKit for the Mac, iPhone and iPad.

Even though Nest was recently acquired by Google, some of the products are still compatible with Apple’s HomeKit. The Nest Cam is compatible, but the Nest Thermostat, sadly, is not.

While I love the Nest Thermostat, it is not compatible with HomeKit. However, the ecobee3 thermostat is compatible with HomeKit. What’s the biggest difference between the ecobee3 and the Nest Thermostat? I prefer the user interface of the Nest, but the ecobee3 has additional sensors. Ordinary thermostats read the temperature in just one room (usually the hallway, where the thermostat is placed). That can make things uncomfortable in important rooms like your bedroom or family room. It works with remote sensors to deliver the right temperature to the rooms that matter most.

One of the most exciting, and recent, announcements is that the new Hue controller is compatible with Apple HomeKit. Philips Hue is your personal wireless lighting. It enables you to create and control light using your smartphone or tablet, bringing endless possibilities to help you get creative and personalize your lighting to suit your and your family’s lifestyle.
