Hunter has debuted its first HomeKit-enabled ceiling fans at CES 2016 in Las Vegas.
The Symphony and Signal ceiling fans can connect directly to a home’s Wi-Fi network and then be controlled using Siri voice commands. They can also integrate with other HomeKit products like lights and thermostats for a fully connected smart home.
Hunter’s latest fans are the first in the industry to support Apple’s HomeKit ecosystem with pricing set at $329 and $379 in the US, respectively.
“Our ceaseless innovation is why Hunter Fan is the industry leader and these new Wi-Fi enabled fans, with added support for Apple HomeKit, are a testament to our heritage of progress and originality,” says Hunter Fan CEO John Alexander.
“They’re beautiful, affordable, high quality pieces of decor that bring state-of-the-art Wi-Fi technology where it might not be expected: the ceiling fan. As we celebrate 130 years, we have several exciting developments to share with our customers, and are proud to kick off 2016 at CES with Symphony and Signal.”
For those not wanting to integrate their home with Apple’s HomeKit, then these fans may not be for them – as there’s no standalone App for either Android or iOS.
