In 2015, the first HomeKit products with Apple’s MFi (“Made for iPhone”) certification went on sale or up for pre-order. The certification ensures that these smart-home devices come with an authentication chip and have undergone rigorous testing to get Apple’s official seal of approval. At the Worldwide Developers Conference in June 2016, the company announced its Home app, which rolled out during the latter half of last year. Home lets you control all your HomeKit-compatible devices through the app, or via your iPhone’s Control Center.

Apple’s first big partners for its smart-home platform included Philips, Haier, and Honeywell. Devices from these manufacturers have slowly trickled out since then. Now you can ask Siri to turn on your Philips Hue lights (they can also check the air quality!) or check to see if your August smart lock is secure. If you want to control these remotely, however, you’ll need an Apple TV to act as a bridge. Eventually, Apple’s HomePod speaker, with Siri built in, will function as a hub, but the company pushed back its expected December 2017 release. Many HomeKit devices are also compatible with Amazon speakers and Google Home devices, so you can still use voice control for them.

During a quarterly earnings call, Apple CEO Tim Cook shared how he uses HomeKit in his own house: “When I leave the house, a simple tap on my iPhone turns the lights off, adjusts the thermostat down and locks the doors. When I return to my house in the evening as I near my home, the house prepares itself for my arrival automatically by using a simple geofence. This level of home automation was unimaginable just a few years ago, and it’s here today with iOS and HomeKit.”

Yet, Apple’s strict certification process has been blamed for the slow rollout of devices, especially when compared to the number of devices Amazon’s Alexa can control. For example, we’ve yet to see the Canary Plus, though the company said we could expect the HomeKit-enabled version of its all-in-one security system in fall of 2016. We’re not holding our breath.

Below is a list of all the HomeKit-compatible devices — we’ll update it as more debut.
