HomeKit Support Added to IKEA Trådfri Smart Lighting System (Updated) »

Tim Hardwick at MacRumors is reporting that IKEA's Trådfri smart lighting system now support Apple's HomeKit.

The lights require a Ethernet-based gateway, not unlike the Philips Hue bridge, although Hardwick also reports that the Trådfri bulbs can work with a Hue bridge.

The bulbs run anywhere from $12 to $18 a pop, which is roughly what Philip's dimmable LED bulbs cost.

Update: Turns out, MacRumors was incorrect. IKEA says support is coming this fall.
