Yeelight have unveiled a lineup of new products at their CES stand today, revealing not only the recently released Mi Bedside Lamp 2, and the just announced Mi Desk Lamp Pro, but also what seems to be a Mini Bedside Lamp and a Yeelight Smart Bulb – all listed as HomeKit compatible.
In the first of the two images above you can just about make out a sign showing the four main products – Desk Lamp Pro, Bedside Lamp, Mini Bedside Lamp, and Yeelight Colour Bulb, with the ‘Works With HomeKit’ logo in the bottom left corner.
Whilst we know that the products above will be coming with HomeKit compatibility – if the signage is to be believed – we’ve also learned that most of the current Yeelight products will not be getting any firmware upgrades to make them HomeKit compatible, so it looks as though Siri Shortcuts will be the closest you’ll get with these products being HomeKit.
Two other things that Yeelight are preparing for release are Bluetooth Mesh lightbulbs, which presumably create a bluetooth mesh network similar to the way that Zigbee bulbs extend the range of the signal with Hue lights for example, and a Bluetooth Smart Dimmer Switch. There’s no word on whether these will also be HomeKit compatible though.
