We knew it was coming but didn't know exactly when. Apple's home automation platform, HomeKit, finally launched and you can expect the first slew of products to hit retail shelves shortly.
Launch parters include Insteaon, Lutron, Elgato, Caseta and Ecobee.
The Insteon HomeKit Hub will be available through Amazon and Smarthome.com for $149.99 shortly and in retail stores in July.
Expect Apple to talk up HomeKit at its annual developer conference (WWDC) with new features probably included in IOS 9.
In addition to these companies, we expect to see a slew of other manufacturers jump on this bandwagon as the home automation market heats up.
