Some time ago Apple opened a number of vacancies for engineers and developers who will work on new devices and software platform HomeKit.
According to the well-known journalist Mark Gurman, the project development platform HomeKit is headed by the former technical Director of Mozilla’s Andreas Gal. He joined Apple last year, right after cupertinos acquired startup Labs Silk.
While it is unclear what exactly Apple plans to develop HomeKit. There is speculation that the cupertinos are planning to create multiple devices for a smart home. However, it is unclear what features they will possess.
Gurman notes that in the past Apple has already thought about creating your own devices for a smart home. In particular, the company considered the possibility of producing modules for remote opening of Windows and doors. But after a time the project was abandoned.
