On the latest episode of HomeKit Insider, your hosts discuss the unreleased Sonos soundbar, Leviton’s updated Decora switches, and some great ideas for NFC tags.
It appears Sonos is getting ready to launch a more affordable soundbar. Leaked details of the Sonos Ray show a $250 soundbar that sits below the Beam and Arc in the lineup. To coincide with this launch, Sonos also looks to be announcing its own virtual assistant similar to Apple’s Siri.
This week we also saw Leviton launch a new line of Decora switches that don’t require a neutral wire. These switches are ideal for older homes that lack the neutral wire wiring that is commonly found in newer homes.
Finally, we wrap up the episode by discussing some great ideas for NFC tags. With just a tap of your iPhone, you can trigger all sorts of automations.
