This is definitely something to keep an eye on. Apple's privacy emphasis certainly makes the thought of them getting further into home automation really interesting. It's likely that all their stuff will be pretty darn well done, but really expensive (though AirTags were quite reasonably priced, so who knows?).

Oh, that sound really interesting. Thanks for the hint.

Yeah, most Apple products are quite expensive. But as you said, the AirTags were reasonably priced, as well as the HomePod Mini. Sure, the Amazon and Google smart speaker are still cheaper, but 99$ for a good smart speaker (made by Apple) is still ok, I guess.
