When Apple announced its new HomeKit SDK at WWDC on Monday, it mentioned Philips, the maker of those popular iOS-connected lights, and potential to use Siri and a command like “Get ready for bed” to automate tasks like closing the garage door, locking the front door, and lowing the lights. 

It also announced a new way for developers to build widgets for Notification Center using a new extensions feature for developers, and Philips has already previewed a prototype of what their offering could look like for them with their Hue lights.

The result shown below is a pretty exciting preview of what’s to come when iOS 8 is ready this fall and even more developers have had time to take advantage of the new functionalities possible with iOS 8.
