(PresseBox) ( Munich / San Francisco, )
Today the high-tech startup tado° reaches its Kickstarter goal of $150.000 and announces integration with Apple's HomeKit as a stretch goal.

tado° Inc launched its second product tado° Cooling a few weeks back and has already reached its funding goal 6 days before the official end of the campaign. The new product makes any remote controlled AC unit smart and saves its users hundreds of dollars every year in electricity costs. Due to the impressively quick success of their Kickstarter campaign the funding goal has now been expanded by the company to $200.000. When it reaches the new goal tado° will integrate HomeKit into all of the their products.

Scheduled to be released this Fall with the new iOS 8, Apple has officially announced HomeKit, a new set of software features designed to expand its activities in the connected home sector. HomeKit will simplify communication between Apple devices and any connected device around the home and enables them to use native Apple services as well as enhanced notification options. Apple is currently teaming up with manufacturers offering Internet of Things devices including smart thermostats, connected light bulbs and smart locks.

If the new Kickstarter goal of $200.000 is reached in time, tado° will integrate with HomeKit by Fall 2014. With the HomeKit integration, tado° users will be able to get even more out of tado°'s products when they own an Apple device. For example it will allow for convenient temperature or sleep time changes in the tado° app with a quick Siri voice command such as "Going to bed now" or by simply pressing the home button in combination with TouchID.

In addition, tado° users will be able to create a multitude of combined scenarios with other connected device manufacturers that will integrate with HomeKit.
