Global Tek Labs, a US-based engineering firm, adds HomeKit development and manufacturing support services for companies creating products that work with the new Apple home automation platform.
The recent announcement of Apple’s HomeKit integration framework offers seamless accessory support for home technology devices.
Homeowners no longer have to navigate multiple apps to check on their garage doors, turn on the lights, or adjust the thermostat remotely. Even control of home automation through verbal commands (using Siri) is possible by early adopters.
Creators of this cutting edge technology can now be helped by Global Tek Labs as they guide the preparation, testing and approval of HomeKit products through Apple’s MFi (Made for iPod/iPhone/iPad) certification program.
To produce HomeKit hardware, developers need to be part of the MFi program in order to gain access to information on how to comply with specifications while allowing cross device support. For the app developer, HomeKit provides discovery of devices, management through a common database, and control of devices for performing actions.
With next year’s CES (Consumer Electronics Show) only six months away, timing is critical for HomeKit innovators striving to have a prototype ready for the big show.Ã‚Â The development process can be tricky; companies should line up engineering support now in order to be ready in time for this very important industry event.Ã‚Â Global Tek Labs is well prepared to assist with these new technology designs.
Global Tek Labs also offers engineering services for new Lightning connector and wireless accessories.[signoff predefined=”Enjoy this?” icon=”icon-users”][/signoff]
