Belkin's Wemo Bridge brings Wemo accessories to HomeKit | iMore
Belkin has launched its new home automation hub that will connect its Wemo accessories to Apple's HomeKit system. Announced at CES 2018, lets customers who have purchased Wemo products and HomeKit-enabled accessories get the best of both worlds and control them all from within Apple's Home app.
The bridge connects to your home Wi-Fi router through a built-in ethernet cable. Once you've got it set up, your Wemo accessories should appear in Apple's Home app alongside any HomeKit products that you've got. From there, they'll just work like any other HomeKit device so long as the Bridge remains plugged in.
The Belkin Wemo Bridge is available for order today for $39.99, with orders shipping next week.

A Roundup of CES Home Automation and Apple Accessory Announcements – MacStories
"The Instinct is a smart light switch, but that's not all it is: it's also a full-fledged Amazon Alexa device. No, I don't mean that it's Alexa-compatible (though it is) – I mean Alexa lives inside the switch, ready for your commands. When you use the trigger word, a blue Echo-like ring will light up on the Instinct to show that it's listening, and you'll be able to have the device do anything a normal Alexa device can. Add in the Instinct's motion detecting and ambient light sensing capabilities, and this is easily the most impressive smart light switch I've ever seen. The Instinct will be available sometime in 2018; pricing is unknown.”


"In addition to updating its iOS app, Philips said it is introducing an all-new Mac app in Q2 2018 that will run in the background and allow its lighting system to synchronize with what you’re doing on your computer. There aren’t many details yet, but Philips will also introduce a line of outdoor Hue lights this summer."
