Lithe Audio is excited to announce the introduction of a World First to its highly acclaimed ceiling speaker collection: Wi-Fi Ceiling Speakers with AirPlay 2 built-in. This addition of Apple’s latest protocol enables users to group Lithe Audio’s all-in-one ceiling speakers together with other AirPlay 2-enabled speakers and systems to create a fully immersive Multi-Brand, Multi-Room audio solution.
AirPlay 2 enables users to control all their audiovisual technology – soundbars, speakers, TVs – from one device, transforming their iPhone, iPad or Mac into an all-in-one entertainment hub. The addition of AirPlay 2 to Lithe Audio Wi-Fi speakers enables them to become part of this home entertainment experience, working seamlessly with other brands and across multiple devices to stream high quality audio throughout the home.
Using AirPlay 2 alongside HomeKit and Siri, every compatible device in your household can be controlled using your voice. Lithe Audio’s update adds Apple HomeKit compatibility to the Wi-Fi speakers, allowing users to create Automations and link lighting, heating, security and audio through their iPhone, iPad or Mac. It also allows users to pair their music to play with motion sensors, pulse switches or alarm systems.
It will also now be possible to ask Siri to turn on the lights, adjust the thermostat and play your favourite playlist through the Lithe Audio wireless ceiling speakers. To ensure a complete and safe home solution, the Lithe Audio Wi-Fi speakers with AirPlay 2 also come in an IP44 version for safe use in bathrooms.
The frameless speakers are designed to ‘disappear’ into the ceiling, only protruding by 3mm. The clever magnetic grille covers can be removed easily for cleaning or for replacement with a different coloured finish. The grilles can be painted to match your ceiling for a barely-there look.
