Here’s the First Homekit Smart Bulb That Doesn’t Need a Hub

Sylvania’s bulbs use Wi-Fi radios that your router can understand as soon as you screw them in. The company claims that the new bulbs are your very first hub-free option for use with HomeKit, compatible with a couple of key advantages for iOS users. The most notable: Siri voice controls that allow you to tell Apple’s virtual assistant to turn your bulbs on and off, dim them up and down or change their color. You’ll also be able to control the Sylvania bulbs directly from Apple’s Home app alongside other HomeKit-compatible gadgets. With the Home app, you can group the bulbs with those other gadgets to create “scenes” that run automatically whenever you please. Pricing for the new bulb isn’t set yet but it should likely cost somewhere around $40 a pop.
