A lot has happened around Philips Hue in recent weeks – and it's not getting boring. The Philips Hue Secure Contact Sensor released in September has now received a firmware update that adds a function that many Apple users have been missing.
The latest update adds support for HomeKit to the Hue Secure Contact Sensor. Just like Hue light bulbs and other accessories, the contact sensor is now also visible in HomeKit – this was previously not the case.
Hue Secure Contact Sensor can control other devices via HomeKit
This opens up completely new possibilities for the smart home. After all, the “open” and “closed” status can now also be used to create automations in HomeKit and thus control other HomeKit devices that are not connected to the Philips Hue Bridge.
This new function requires the firmware update to version 1961076030 for the sensor. As a rule, the update is required and you don't have to do anything except be patient.
