Sylvania Announces HomeKit-Enabled Hub Free Smart Bulb

Sylvania Smart Home has today announced the launch of its new HomeKit-enabled Smart Multicolor A19 bulb, which can be easily controlled via Siri and Apple’s Home app, without the need of a dedicated hub. To install, all you need to do is screw in the bluetooth-enabled bulb in your favorite lamp, sync it with the native Home app, and start controlling your lights.

You can also control the new Sylvania A19 lights using voice commands with Siri. For those times when you are away from home, Apple’s native Home app makes it possible to control HomeKit-enabled products using an Apple TV or iPad running iOS 10 as a home hub. 

“For more than a century, consumers have looked to the brand SYLVANIA for innovation, and this announcement represents another exciting advancement,” said Aaron Ganick, who heads up the Smart Home Americas group.

“For us, making the Smart Home a reality for consumers is all about quality products and strong partnerships with leaders in the industry. By working with Apple to provide smart lighting that works directly with the Home app, we’re making it easier for Apple enthusiasts to seamlessly integrate quality lighting into their Smart Home, bringing convenience and simplicity to their daily lives.”

The new HomeKit-enabled Sylvania smart bulb will be available on Amazon early next year.

    If this connects via Bluetooth, does the lightbulb need to be within Bluetooth range of the AppleTV to control the lights outside of the home network?

  • Yes, I believe so.

    Can the bulbs be dimmed remotely?

  • Yes if you have an ATV 3/4 or iPad acting as a home hub.
