Back in August, it was revealed that Ikea planned to release a $ 10 power supply in October as part of the Wireless Smart Home product line. It seems that the launch ran into some barriers, as the plugins are now available for purchases in the United States and the United Kingdom one month late and without the Apple HomeKit support they should launch, as reported by 9to5Mac .
$ 10 is quite affordable for a smart plug that lets you turn on and off household appliances such as lamps and coffee machines from the phone or via a magnetic remote control included in the $ 15 checkout. If you are not already in Wireless Ecosystem, you must purchase $ 30 Gateway, which allows you to control the smart plug via the Wireless app. Gateway is also what allows you to connect other wireless smart devices like dimmer, light and motion sensors to Google Assistant, Alexa and Apple HomeKit.
According to a Reddit post made by a member of the Wireless Team, there is no timeline yet for when the HomeKit integration will happen, but when it does, it will be available through a Gateway update.
