What is HomeKit?

About HomeKit & Home app

The Home app, created by Apple, lets you control HomeKit-enabled devices within your home from your iOS smartphone or tablet. By grouping accessories room by room, you can easily control compatible smart products wherever you are in your home. You can also operate the Home app using your voice – Siri knows your HomeKit-enabled devices and can control them based on your demands. Over 50 brands worldwide work with HomeKit and more are added every day. Each accessory is approved by Apple to ensure they're secure in your home.

About Home app

Apple HomeKit accessories work with the Home app. The Home app allows you to group HomeKit accessories by room, so you can set up 'scenes' for each area of your smart home. Within Home app on your iOS device, you can also tell Siri to carry out certain actions, i.e. “Turn off the bedroom lights.” Siri will then work with Home app to do what you've asked. Not sure how to set up your HomeKit accessories in the app? It’s easy. Simply scan the HomeKit code and it’s instantly paired with your iOS device. Plus, if you have other existing accessories set up in another app, Home app recognises those too.

How do I set 'scenes' within the Home app?

Home app letd you set scenes from your saved settings; perfect for when you like to repeat a certain mood or action. For example, “Leaving Home” could mean you’d like the Home app to lock your front door, turn the lights off and lower the thermostat. Every time you press “Leaving Home,” the same controls happen. “Good morning” could turn the thermostat on, open the blinds, and pop the kettle on. To set up scenes, find the 'scenes' tab in your HomeKit app, tap the 'plus' button to add a new action, name the scene and 'save' it, select the accessories you want to add to your scene, set up your actions and click 'done'.
