Little by little, Ikea is adding to its catalog of products, some compatible with Apple’s HomeKit system. Of course, there aren’t many, but you have to take into account that every item that Ikea incorporated in its catalog takes several months of preparation
So we will have patience and we will find out what incorporation is. The novelty that you are about to present are physical wall switches, associated with the different scenes that we can define in Homekit
The Verge just published an article reporting that a new update The Ikea Home Start app includes support for HomeKit scenes.
And with the new update, the Swedish firm will launch a series of wall switches to be associated with these scenes, at the low price of 9.99 dollars.
We know how Ikea studies the entire process of designing, manufacturing and marketing any product that makes up its vast catalog of furniture and accessories. These switches should be started now, the Swedish firm presented them a year ago
Ikea has yet to say anything about its launch, but a blunder has raised the alarms. They are already on display in an Ikea store in Lithuania, at 9.99 Euros, but still no stock available.
For example, we can install one of these buttons in the hall of our house, to activate the scene of “all off“, for example. So if you press on it when you leave the house, you make sure all the lights are off.
The truth is, for what it costs, it’s cool. So if Ikea Lithuania already appears, it is very likely that we will soon have it available in Ikea stores in our country, and obviously on its website. So the first to see them, let him know.
