    The new Apple HomeKit-enabled Sylvania Smart Multicolor A19 bulb can be controlled using the Home app and with Siri’s voice-command feature. For some applications, Apple TV and iPads running iOS 10 can be used as hubs to control the new Bluetooth bulbs and other Home-enabled devices, letting customers create scenes, such as turning on lights, adjusting temperature, and playing music, all over a single voice command.

    Per Sylvania, installation is simple; screw the new bulb into a compatible lamp and synchronize it with Apple's Home app.

    The new Sylvania Smart Multicolor A19 bulb will be available on Amazon early next year. For additional information, visit the Sylvania smart home site.

    I've found that consumers don't care that much about bridges. The Hue has had HomeKit support for what a year or more. Price is the only vector here for competitors. As good as Lifx is they still get stomped in sales by Philips
