Hello, I bought Ajax Zigbee filament bulbs. Integration with Philips Hue is working, but I am not able to integrate them to apple Homekit.

Do you have any ideas how to manage it?
Thank you.

HomeKit only supports HomeKit-certified devices. Integrating non-HK devices requires some d-i-y hacking, usually using HomeBridge.

That’s why this disclaimer is on their description page:

“Please note: The Vintage Zigbee Bulb is NOT compatible with Apple Homekit & Philips Hue Entertainment.”

Did you look at setting up HomeBridge?

Otherwise you are left with using Siri Shortcuts or swapping the bulbs for actual, HomeKit-compatible bulbs.
