On September 21, 2017 LIFX will support Apple HomeKit
We are please to bring Apple HomeKit capabilities to our Generation 3 LIFX (A19/BR30) and LIFX + (A19/BR30) product lines.
We expect there will be a few questions:
Do current Generation 3 products have all the hardware for HomeKit?
Generation 3 lights, both LIFX and LIFX + have all the required hardware to support Apple HomeKit.
Will I be able to firmware update my current bulbs to be HomeKit compatible?
For Generation 3 LIFX (A19/BR30) and LIFX + (A19/BR30), yes, we've mapped out the instructions here: HomeKit Code Recovery Process
With iOS 11 out and software authentication an option what about the older products?
We're currently talking to Apple to better understand this change and will update when we know more.
Thank you all for your patience, I'm sure you'll find it was worth the wait!
