TP-Link unveils HomeKit-compatible smart devices under Tapo brand

On the lighting side, there are a few HomeKit-compatible devices available too. The Tapo L535 Multicolor Smart WiFi Light Bulb works with Apple HomeKit and comes with adjustable brightness up to 1100 lumens, adjustable light temperature, and millions of colors. Similarly customizable is the flagship Tapo L930-5 Smart Multicolor Light Strip which also offers color segmentation across its 150 RGB+W LEDs. There's a HomeKit-ready smart dimmer switch too in the form of the Tapo S500D.

Those in Europe may be familiar with TP-Link's Tapo brand already, though it will be new for those Stateside. That being said, Tapo devices have not supported HomeKit in other regions before.

Alongside the smart power and lightning devices, TP-Link announced several Tapo smart security cameras though none of these offer support for HomeKit or HomeKit Secure Video.
