Incipio today unveiled a new lineup of iOS- and HomeKit-compatible automation tools during the Consumer Electronics Show. The three new pieces of tech will be available in stores in Q2 2015.
The first two items on the list are very similar: the Direct Wireless Smart Outlet and the Direct Wireless Smart Power strip. Both provide users with the ability to activate and control electric devices from a smartphone using the upcoming Incipio Direct app.
The third device announced today is the Direct Wireless Smart Light Bulb Adapter, which allows users to control their lights from the Incipio Direct smartphone application, providing the ability to create customized scenes and quickly set multiple lights at once.
All three products are HomeKit-compatible, which means they’ll also be able to be controlled through Siri. They can also use proximity detection to determine when a homeowner leaves or arrives and automatically configure lights and other devices appropriately.
The Smart Outlet and Light Buld Adapter will each sell for $24.99, while the Smart Power Strip will run for $59.99. As noted above, all three products will go on sale in Q2. The Incipio Direct app will be available for free at that time.
