Sylvania’s Smart Multicolor A19 light bulb is HomeKit compatible, but it doesn’t require a hub
Good news, everyone! In an effort to shield us from the existential dread that comes from having to turn on the lights in your home with a switch on the wall—like an animal—LEDVANCE has given us a HomeKit and Siri-controlled lightbulb: the Sylvania Smart Multicolor A19.
You won’t find it on the CES show floor, but LEDVANCE is showing its latest smart bulb in its hotel suite in Las Vegas. The bulb can be controlled using an iPhone or iPad running iOS 10 and later or an Apple TV, removing any excuse that Apple aficionados might have for stumbling around in the dark. Adverse to tapping and swiping? No problem—the Sylvania Smart’s still got your back: The bulb can also be controlled using Siri.
