GE Lights Up With Apple

According to re/code, GE is working with both Qualcomm and Apple to enable their next generation LED lights to work with Apple's HomeKit app.  Intelligent, efficient, and controllable seem to be the new elements of a smart home and GE is reshaping itself to fit this new world.  Beth Comstock, head of GE Business Innovation, says “LEDs plus software, it helps GE continue its Industrial Internet expansion, and I think the lighting business has a big role in GE’s future because of that."   Certainly the space is much larger than lighting and the hope is that GE sees fit to partnering with other manufacturers to assure an integrated experience across all devices in the home.
