British smart home solutions maker LightwaveRF announces it is working on a product range featuring Apple HomeKit compatibility, with offerings including a light dimmer and smart socket.

LightwaveRFThe products in question are the Generation 2 Link Plus smart hub, Smart Dimmers, Smart Sockets and a Smart Radiator Valve. The Link Plus connects to routers and controls the LightwaveRF smart home system for lighting, heating, power and security. The LightwaveRF system also gets new features, such as built-in energy monitoring, colour-changing status LEDs and wire-free two-way switches.

"This is a further exciting development for LightwaveRF," the company says. "We look forward to working with Apple as a HomeKit technical partner and a supplier to its retail outlets. The exposure and awareness from this partnership should enhance our market visibility and greatly benefit our customers via easier management of their smart home solutions. We look forward to expanding our relationship with Apple as we launch further HomeKit compatible devices for both the UK and international markets."

The range should be available from October 2017 in the UK and UAE through Apple Stores and select retailers.
