Apple's HomePod makes for an excellent home theater speaker, but to take advantage of its capabilities, you need the Apple TV 4K. In our recent review, we hailed the Apple TV 4K as being the "best Apple TV ever made" thanks to Dolby Atmos support and the ability to set the HomePod as the default speaker for all of your movies, shows, and games.
Voice control: Eve Energy - Smart Plug for Apple HomeKit
Plug just about anything into the Eve Energy smart plug and turn it into a smart appliance with energy monitoring. In our review, we loved how simple it was to set lamps, fans, and more to turn on and off even when not at home in our hands-on review. Once set up, a couple of words to your HomePod is all you need to control your devices.
