Hunter Fan Company Expanding Lineup of HomeKit-Enabled Ceiling Fans
Hunter Fan Company today announced it is expanding its SIMPLEconnect collection of Wi-Fi-enabled ceiling fans, all of which feature HomeKit support for controlling the fans with Apple's Home app or Siri voice commands.
The company's new Aerodyne fan pictured above is said to offer 20 percent higher airflow velocity than leading competitors. The 52-inch fan is equipped with an LED light and is available in Matte Black or Matte Silver for $179.99 at HunterFan.com.

This will expand Hunter Fan Company's lineup of Wi-Fi-enabled fans to 15 models, including the Aerodyne, Signal, Symphony, Romulus, Radeon, Advocate, Apache, and more, many of which can be found at home improvement stores.
The new ceiling fans are also compatible with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Hunter Fan Company's SIMPLEconnect app.

Costly, but I think it achieves the experience you are looking for.
If you’re waiting for something like this and like your existing fan(s), do yourself a favor and just get a Caseta switch.
For any types of device that tend to be installed in multiple quantities (e.g., light switch), I generally prefer bridge-based solution for easier setup. I only have to pair the bridge with HomeKit Home hub. Most bridges auto discover and setup new devices with greater ease than HomeKit pairing.
