This week's HomeKit Insider is replete with new products to discuss, a detailed review of the Wemo Wi-Fi Outdoor Smart Plug, and our holiday gift guide, too. We've also got a special announcement for next week's episode.
There have been so many new HomeKit devices and updates, you'd think a big holiday buying season was upon us. Just for starters, the Flic 2 button added HomeKit support, Ecobee added HomeKit Secure Video to its camera, Meross added HomeKit to its dimmer switch and filament bulb, and HomePass has launched on the Mac.
As well as these announcements, Andrew got to properly examine and review the new Wemo Wi-Fi Outdoor Smart Plug. It's right for any exterior lighting, but of course at this time of year, it is perfectly timed for everyone's Christmas lights.
So there are new devices to discuss, new devices to test, it's a busy time of year for HomeKit — and that surely means it's the time of year for a gift guide. Just remember, you deserve a present yourself, so have a listen to our special 2020 HomeKit holiday gift guide
Next week's episode
