Home provides an overview over all your accessories. You quickly see the temperature in your rooms or if doors are closed. You can peek into a specific accessory to get more details using 3D Touch or swipe left to turn devices on and off.
A wide range of manufacturers already support HomeKit. You can find a list of popular accessories in our buying guide.
Automate your accessories with powerful rules. For example, turn the lights on when anyone arrives at home but only at night and if nobody is at home.
Home lets you create groups of devices to control them all at once. The app even provides smart groups based on your home configuration. For example, there will be a group for all lights bulbs in your office. You can favorite groups and control them with just one tap from the Today View.
Home provides a camera widget where you can see all your HomeKit cameras at a glance. If you want to see the live stream of a camera, you can long press on the snapshot. This will open the app and connects you to the camera.
Home runs on iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. You can configure your home on your iOS device and quickly access your favorites on your Apple Watch. No matter where you are, Home gives you control over your smart home.
