‘C by GE’ Smart LED Light Bulbs Will Support HomeKit This Summer
GE today announced that its connected LED light bulbs C-Life and C-Sleep will gain Apple HomeKit compatibility this summer.
A new C-Reach hub with HomeKit support will allow homeowners to turn on and off their “C by GE” lights, dim them, and control bulbs individually or in groups by rooms with Siri voice commands. The lights also should be able to be controlled with the Home app on an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch running iOS 10 or later.
GE said the C-Reach hub will sell for less than $50 and will be available at a discount when bundled with some lights, according to The Verge.
GE describes the C-Life as an “everyday” light bulb that provides “optimal daytime light,” while the C-Sleep light bulb is supposedly “warm and calm at night” and “crisp and vibrant in the morning.” A starter pack with two C-Life and two C-Sleep light bulbs is available for $74.99 plus shipping in the United States.
