The just-released Legrand Home Smart Lighting for Apple HomeKit collection includes 3-way and dimmable wall switches, as well as plug-in wall sockets that are also either on/off or dimmable. Any of these can be controlled via an iPhone, HomePod, etc. with no pesky hub required for in-home use.

“Legrand Home Smart Lighting for Apple HomeKit offers advanced smart lighting control capabilities, including remote access and voice control with Siri,” said Fritz Werder, vice president and general manager for Legrand | AV. “Apple enthusiasts can use the Apple Home app for simple setup and native control with other HomeKit accessories for full home control.”

These devices can be controlled from any Apple device via Siri, or schedules can be set up to turn them on or off. HomeKit does require a computer acting as a hub to be accessible outside the home Wi-Fi network.

Legrand’s latest smart products also support Alexa and Google Assistant.

Legrand-On-Q HomeKit collection

The Legrand-On-Q Smart Light Switch ($34.99) and this company’s Smart Plug WiFi Outlet Switch are on/off devices.

Other entries in the collection include the Legrand-On-Q Smart 3 Way Light Switch ($59.99), Smart Dimmer Light Switch ($57.99) and Smart 3 Way Dimmer Light Switch ($59.99). There’s also a Smart Plug WiFi Outlet Dimmer Switch.

Some of the wall switches are all available on Amazon today but the plug-in wall sockets are not yet.

A rival option already available is the Satechi Dual Smart Outlet.
