Smarthome brand Savant on Tuesday announced Apple HomeKit support across multiple products, including its Circuit Breaker Companion Module, claimed to be the first-ever HomeKit product to control breakers.

The Companion Module handles loads of up to 30 amps and connects to Savant's control modules. Through the company's mobile apps, owners can both make adjustments and monitor power consumption, though automatic control of the modules is also an option.

HomeKit support extends to the complete Savant lighting ecosystem. That includes Smart Bulbs, DMX LED Light Strips, DMX and 0-10V light fixtures, plus third-party lighting linked to DMX or 0-10V controllers that work with the system.

The upgrade will allow people to group Savant products with any other HomeKit devices in scenes and automations, as well as to control them via the Apple Home app or through Siri commands.

Savant didn't immediately offer prices, since the company typically pairs with dealers that conduct professional installations rather than dealing with consumers directly.

    Wow. I never even imagined HomeKit circuit breakers. That’s imaginative. Do they insert into existing breaker sockets or is it the whole breaker box that needs to be installed? I’m guessing the latter. Someone should invent the former. Either way, they had me at “Hello.”

    It's a shame that this company only sell to dealers. I like I believe most are doing this a few pieces at a time. I am happy with the iDevices products but would gladly try this but I will never call a contractor to install a couple switches. After all isn't that what Homekit is about, being able to DIY?

    Amazing.  I didn't see this one coming.  I was sure the Leviton Load Center would be the first with HomeKit support

    The devices fit in common Schneider load centres.

    Oh, thanks. I googled that and it looks like what I have in my 6 year old house.

    A light switch is DIY. Most people would consider changing circuit breakers beyond that.

    I've been looking for DMX Homekit integration, but am disappointed that I would have to have it installed and pay a premium for it. Not that I can't afford it. But I can probably do a better job given that I have much more time to design and install than an installer. I can also modify/change anything I want. I'm guessing I can have an installer do this and then modify or change it myself, but I'm also pretty sure that access to any software will be limited. I hate proprietary policy. This is really just for very high end customers who would never do any DIY projects but still want the functionality. I'll wait for a DIY version or a hack.
