Apple May Be Developing a Smart Home Device for HomeKit

Apple may develop some smart products for their HomeKit platform, announced at WWDC 2014. For example, they may make a smart speaker for music or maybe a set of lights. No one seems to know. Macworld's Chris Breen had this to say about the rumor:

"The sources say that Apple is unlikely to move forward with devices to compete directly with Google’s Nest as the Cupertino-company feels it can build products that can gain usage wider than that of thermostats and smoke detectors. It is likely that Apple is building advanced speaker systems or control panels for homes, the sources say. It is possible that Apple’s recent acquisition of Beats Electronics and the audio company’s existing speaker systems play into this vision."
