Best Apple HomeKit Compatible Devices: Updated March 2018
Are you an Apple Fanboy that wants to focus on HomeKit? Then look no further than this list of the best Apple HomeKit Compatible Devices.

Apple supports the big dog in the smart lighting category: Philips Hue. Philips Hue is, by far the most reliable Smart Home Lighting Set Up you can buy. The downside? It’s not cheap. Read my full Smart Home Lighting Guide.
Apple HomeKit supports all of the Philips Hue Lights that are paired with the Second Generation Philips Hue Hub. That hub is the square one, not the round one.
Apple recently announced the Nanoleaf Aurora Lighting will work with Apple HomeKit. Nanoleaf’s are a really cool addition to Apple HomeKit:
Nano Leaf also has some funky lights that fit in a regular socket, too:
I also found that Apple HomeKit now works with Incipio CommandKit Smart Light Bulb Adapter. It looks like you can use this HomeKit-Compatible Adapter to any standard light.

Now, Apple HomeKit works with several Honeywell models, including the T5.
I can’t recommend the T5 (you can read more in our thermostat reviews).
Other Products that work with Apple HomeKit
I, personally, use the iHome Smart Plugs. They work with Alexa, Wink and Apple Homekit.
I currently use the iHome iSP6X. It plugs into my Christmas Tree (during Christmas time, obviously) and my sound machine in the office.
Lutron Caseta Switches are compatible with Apple HomeKit. Several Smart Plugs work with Apple HomeKit. Read more about the Best Smart Plugs. Several of the Smart Plugs I recommend work with Apple HomeKit.
