Philips Hue ventures into home security with their first smart cameras; support for HomeKit remains uncertain

Cupertino, August 1, 2023

Signify CEO Eric Rondolat has revealed that Philips Hue intends to venture into the smart home camera market. The specifics of this move are still limited, with one major question being whether or not the Philips Hue smart home camera will support integration with HomeKit. During an investor meeting last week, Rondolat explained that Philips Hue plans to combine its smart lighting system with a smart camera to enhance home security. According to Hueblog.com, Rondolat envisions a future where cameras and lighting are fused together, with an example being that if a burglar is detected, all the lights in the house will flash red as an alert. Rondolat further praised Philips Hue's commitment to data protection, stating that their cameras will be the first to offer end-to-end encryption. It should be noted that there are already cameras on the market that support end-to-end encryption when used with HomeKit Secure Video. Philips Hue's entry into the smart home camera market comes late, so customers' expectations are high, with HomeKit Secure Video integration being a key feature for many users. As of now, there are no additional details about Philips Hue's plans for smart home cameras. Follow Chance: Threads, Twitter, Instagram, and Mastodon.
