The world is getting smarter and smarter every year. It was just eight years ago that we were introduced to Siri by Apple, the first widespread smart voice assistant. Since then, we’ve been introduced to systems that aren’t only connected to the internet but systems that can connect to and control others.
Apple HomeKit is among the most popular as it integrates seamlessly with your already owned Apple devices and programs such as AirPlay. Rather than release all-new products, brands are having incredible success re-releasing their best designs with added integration. At CES 2019, we saw many familiar products as well as some new with a heavy focus on Apple HomeKit compatible gadgets.
