Insteon and HomeKit

Looks like the next version of the Insteon hub will be "HomeKit-compatible".

 

Insteon announced a new HomeKit-compatible hub will be added to their product line, bringing all of its various sensors under Apple's upcoming smart-home umbrella. In addition, it's opened their API and officially joined the Works with Nest program.

After previously bringing Cortana to Insteon with Windows compatibility, Insteon now has its foot in the door with Google (via Nest), Windows and now Apple.

The HomeKit-specific hub will retail for $150 (roughly £100 or AU$185), a premium bump over the $100 list price of their regular hub. However, it will allow all of Insteon's products to fit into Apple's system, meaning you can group them by rules and give commands to Siri that will simultaneously control multiple devices.

Insteon's app can also supposedly control every product in your HomeKit system, including third-party devices. Insteon wants to unify the fragmented smart home.

Just saw this tonight. Really waiting to see what HomeKit does and how well it does it.

If so may go begrudgingly into the world of iOS?
