Elgato today launched Eve Light Switch, the world’s first light switch with HomeKit that doesn't require a hub.

Eve Light Switch transforms any single or multi-bulb setup into a Siri-enabled lighting system, so you can use your voice to control your existing bulbs regardless of their shape, size or color. Eve Light Switch replaces a single pole switch and features Bluetooth low energy technology to ensure easy setup, reliable operation, and power efficiency.

“Controlling your light bulbs using Siri is a compelling experience, but up until now, you were out of luck if they were switched off at the wall,” said Markus Fest, General Manager of Elgato. “By integrating Bluetooth low energy technology into the wall switch itself, Eve Light Switch is the first HomeKit-enabled product that provides seamless access to your lights.”

With a clean, white wall plate for a minimalist, modern look; Eve Light Switch features a capacitive touch sensor to manually turn a light on or off. It replaces a single pole switch and is ready for DIY or professional installation. Thanks to Bluetooth low energy technology, Eve Light Switch does not require a gateway or bridge, and is totally immune to cyber attacks over the internet. To control Eve Light Switch when you are away from home, all you need is an Apple TV 4 that is set up as a Home Hub. To control brightness and color, combine Eve Light Switch with a HomeKit-enabled Philips Hue setup.

If this works with Echo it would be amazing! I love this because my tech challenged family won't have a problem manually turning in and off lights while I prefer gelling Alexa to do it. They won't compete with each other.

Lutron Caseta is better than this product and works seamlessly with Alexa: https://www.amazon.com/Lutron-P-BDG-PKG1W-Caseta-Wireless-Dimmer/dp/B00MXCRAX8

It's not a Philips hue with HomeKit integration.
