Philips Hue Smart Plug with HomeKit

The Philips Hue smart plug will work like any other smart plug. You will be able to turn dumb devices smart. At the moment, it is unclear whether you will need a Philips Hue bridge or if it will be an independent product via Bluetooth.

You can use Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and of course, Siri via HomeKit. The Philips Hue plug pricing around €29.95, but at the moment, a release date is not known yet.

Philips will also launch Hue Filament lamps which will work with Zigbee and Bluetooth. The current plan is to release an E27, an G93 and an ST19 fitting. According to the source, the new Philips Hue Filament bulbs fitting should appear the second week September 2019 with price ranges from €19.95 to €29.95.

Due to the introduction of Bluetooth, you may not need a bridge at all to interact with the lights. However, it is not clear if these new Hue products will support HomeKit without the hub.
