Stock to Watch: Apple Inc (NASDAQ AAPL) Developing Smart Home Products


Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) is targeting Smart Home as another business category to achieve growth. According to various sources, the tech giant Apple (NASDAQ AAPL) has assembled a new team which would develop different hardware products for the home that would deeply integrate with its devices such as the iPhone, iPad and other Apple based deices.

Although Apple unveiled its HomeKit platform for developers at this year’s WWDC, the company is now working on actual hardware products for everyday users. Apple’s smart home products probably won’t compete with the Nest Learning Thermostat or the newly announced Honeywell Lyric. Rather, it will focus on something a little more mainstream that will get more widespread usage.

It’s not entirely surprising that Apple could be creating hardware geared toward the connected home. Apple’s soon to be launched iWatch, Apple’s first Wearable Device, could be used as a multi-media controller for your home. Apple Inc (NASDAQ AAPL) has also been speculated with other innovative products which would find a footing in this market space.

Sources have suggested that Apple would possibly produce advanced speaker systems or control panels for homes. According to them, the tech giant might use the technology of its recent acquisition, Beats Electronics to achieve its vision in the smart home category.

Apple is unlikely to develop smart home devices that would directly compete with the products of Nest Labs, the maker of smart thermostat and smoke-detector acquired by Google for $3.2 billion. Nest Labs was founded by Tony Fadell, one of the persons behind the development of the iPod, the music player of Apple.
