As the first retail-ready HomeKit product, Lutron's kit is just the beginning of Siri-integrated smart home control, but it works so well that I can easily recommend it today for any iOS users interested in plug-in lighting and dimmer products.
The $230 Lutron kit, complete with Smart Bridge hub, two plug-in dimmer modules and two remote controls works like a charm.
Part of the Caseta Wireless system, the $149 Lutron Smart Bridge lets DIY smart home builders control lights, window shades, and Wi-Fi thermostats all through Android and iOS mobile apps.
