Our favorite smart thermostat works great with HomeKit, letting you set your home's temperature using Siri, as well as the built-in Alexa assistant. HomeKit integration also means it works with specific scenes. The Ecobee4 also comes with a room sensor, which you place in any room in your home to feed temperature data about that room back to the Ecobee4.
Keep track of both indoor and outdoor conditions with Elgato's little weather station. This module tracks temperature, humidity, and air pressure, and thanks to its HomeKit integration, you can just ask Siri to get more accurate local temperatures than any weather report will give you.
Keep an eye on what's going on both inside and outside of your home with this HomeKit-compatible camera. It's got a 180-degree lens for a wide field of view, and uses motion sensors to begin recording when they detect movement. If something's happening in or outside of your home that you need to connect to immediately, you can take advantage of the Circle 2's two-way talk functionality thanks to the built-in microphone and speaker.
The Philips Hue line might just be the best way to get into smart lighting. These colorful LED bulbs make for a great starter kit, while the included Hue Bridge makes these bulbs completely compatible with HomeKit, so you can change the color of each bulb individually, or integrate them with HomeKit scenes as you choose.
LIFX bulbs feature built-in support for HomeKit, so you won't need a separate hub. This dimmable, 1100-lumen, 75-watt equivalent bulb lets you choose from a variety of colors, and integrates seamlessly into your HomeKit arrangement.
This HomeKit-connected dimmer switch doesn't care which lightbulbs you use. Install this in place of a standard dimmer, then connect it to your HomeKit accessories and scenes for fully-automated lighting. Great for use in your living room for a holiday movie night.
Our pick for best smart lock of 2018 is a great for keeping your home secure while adding the convenience of keyless entry. Attaching to your existing deadbolt, the August takes about 10 minutes to install, after which you can command your door to open using your voice. The included Connect sensor connects your Smart Lock Pro and your Wi-Fi network, letting you monitor your door from wherever you are for extra piece of mind.
Taking the place of your current light switch, the Lutron Caseta switch has options for switching lights on and off, as well as dimming them. You can use the switch manually, or connect to HomeKit to use the switch with Siri.
Plug in your less intelligent lamps and other appliances to this smart plug to turn them into full members of your HomeKit setup. Compatible with not only Siri but also Google Assistant and Alexa, this smart plug goes into any wall outlet. Add some psychological security to your home automation setup with the WeMo Mini's Away Mode, which automatically turns your lights on and off intermittently to make it appear as though you're home when you're not.
These are great accessories to get to make your home smarter, especially now that they're on sale. Personally, I'd pick up one or two of the WeMo Mini smart plug. It's the easiest way to bring some intelligence into your home, and you don't have to replace any appliances. Also, the Away Mode setting is a clever idea to deter burglars.
