Signify, the company behind Philips Hue, has pushed out an update to its recently released contact sensor that adds support for Apple Home. With the update, the sensor is now available as a standard sensor for doors, windows, cabinets or even refrigerators. The update appears to be for the Hue Bridge, with the bridge then exposing the sensor. The contact sensor was released earlier this year as part of Hue's new security range, which also included an indoor/outdoor camera, and a combination camera and floodlight for outdoor use. Since the contact sensor uses Zigbee, you'll need the Hue Bridge to make it work, and to expose it to Apple HomeKit (or other third-party platforms), so if you don't have a Hue Bridge yet, it may be too expensive to invest in, while it is already not the cheapest contact sensor out there, priced at $39.99. you can buy a single contact sensor kit on Amazon.com for the aforementioned price of US$39.99, only in white, while the black model is currently only available in Europe.
