LightwaveRF plc (“LightwaveRF” or the “Company”), the leading smart home solutions provider, is delighted to announce that its next generation Lightwave Link Plus has been certified under Apple’s licensing scheme as a “Works with Apple HomeKit” product.
The new Lightwave Link Plus connects to a standard WiFi router and controls the integrated LightwaveRF smart home system for lighting, heating, power and security. This manages Lightwave end-point devices through both Apple Home and LightwaveRF apps and via voice control. The Lightwave Link Plus supports the current Lightwave product range as well the new range of devices to be launched later this year.
Commenting, Andrew Pearson, CEO said: “This announcement of the next generation Lightwave Link and its certification by Apple is the culmination of an extensive research and development programme over more than two years. A fully integrated Apple chip allows Lightwave Link Plus to work directly with Apple HomeKit without reliance on third party technologies and interfaces. This new generation of smart home technology has much improved energy efficiency, uses a combination of radio frequencies and protocols to execute fully encrypted commands with zero latency, and is future proofed by remote over-the-air update capability.
Together with our new cloud platform capabilities, energy consumption analytics and voice control Lightwave Link Plus is a significant new development for the company. Lightwave Link Plus and our new range of lighting and power devices will launch later this year.”
