GE hitches up with HomeKit
GE announced that its next smart light will be a color-tunable take on its existing line of Align LEDs designed to help you wake up in the morning and wind down at night. GE claims the new bulb will work with Apple HomeKit at launch.
Beth Comstock, GE's CEO of Business Innovations, was also on hand with representatives from the city governments of San Diego and Jacksonville, where pilot runs of GE-designed smart city lighting systems are just getting underway. An executive from Qualcomm was also on hand to announce a new partnership with GE that'll bring precision indoor location tracking capabilities to retail lighting fixtures.
