LG prepping smart lights that work with Apple HomeKit

by Jacob Kleinman | June 13, 2015

The first HomeKit devices are already available to buy, but we’re still just getting started. Countless companies are likely racing to launch their own gadgets for Apple’s smart home platform, and it turns out LG is part of that group.

A smart lighting hub from the South Korean company recently passed through the FCC. A user manual for the device clearly notes that it “Works with Apple HomeKit,” adding that the device is “Made for iPhone, iPad and iPod.” A handful of images show a pretty basic looking white box with a prominent LG logo.

Once it launches, the smart light hub will make it possible to control multiple LG-made smart bulbs from your phone. The device has a range of 98 feet, though it’s apparently only meant for indoor use. You’ll need to plug it into a power source as well.

There’s no word on when LG’s HomeKit setup will launch, though after passing through the FCC an official release is probably just around the corner.
