"how to Integrate Samsung SmartPower Outlet with Apple homekit"


#1

I have 15 Samsung Power Outlets installed and working with my Samsung Hub. One my network I have added Philips Hue Bridge and learning about managing Lighting. Samsung Hub recognises the Hue Bridge and lights. However it would appear the Hue Bridge does not recognise the Samsung Power Outlets.
I have commenced using the Apple Home Kit and here the Hue Bridge Lights recognised and I have been unable to identify home kit identifies either the Samsung Hub and Outlets.
Has anyone made progress here please?

At the present time SmartThings brand devices are not compatible with HomeKit. They do not include the special HomeKit chip. When connected to the smartthings hub they can be used with echo or google home for voice control.

Any device which is compatible with HomeKit will have the Homekit seal on the box.

The IHome plug-in pocket socket can work with both SmartThings and HomeKit, as can the Lutron plug ins if you also have the Lutron SmartBridge, but I think those two are the only pocket sockets that do at this time.

As you noted, the Phillips hue bridge can work with both SmartThings and HomeKit. So can the Lutron SmartBridge.

The SmartThings brand pocket sockets cannot work with the hue bridge directly.

Thank you, very helpful to me understanding what I can do now.

I am thinking how long before Philips start selling a Smart Plug that integrates with Apple Home kit?
