Apple has announced HomeKit, smartphone interface that works with many partners and products, allowing you to give Siri voice commands that will cause a host of new products to work. By simply asking Siri, you can open your garage door, start your coffee maker, unlock your front door, turn off or on cooking devices, turn your lights on or off, or anything else that you plug into your smart HomeKit compatible device! Not much is available at this time, but with all of the companies behind the effort, including Apple, it is sure to be a hit in 2015.
