One app for all your home accessories.
No matter which compatible accessories you choose, the Home app makes it easy to set up and control all of them, all from one place. Over 50 brands worldwide are committed to providing accessories that are compatible with the HomeKit framework, and the number available is growing every day. And each of these accessories is reviewed and approved by Apple to help ensure your security when you use it.
Get your house in order.
Room by room.
The Home app groups accessories by room, so you can easily control devices in any part of your house with a tap. You can even tell Siri things like “Turn off my bedroom lights” or “Start heating the upstairs.” And 3D Touch lets you press an icon to perform more complex tasks like dimming the lights or adjusting the thermostat.
Set several things in motion with a tap.
Or your voice.
Home allows you to set scenes, which enable multiple accessories to work in combination — all with a single command. So you can create a scene named “Leaving Home” that turns off the lights, locks your doors, and lowers the thermostat.
With Apple TV as your home hub, you can control your house from just about anywhere.
Access your home remotely on your iOS device through Apple TV to do things like shut your garage door, view live camera video of the doorway, or even ask Siri to lower the thermostat — anything you normally do while using the Home app at home.
Put your home on autopilot.
Apple TV also enables your home to carry out certain tasks automatically. For example, you can trigger an accessory or scene based on the time of day, your location, sensor detection, and more. Set it up once and you’re done.
Getting started is easy.
Setting up a HomeKit accessory to work with the Home app is simple and secure. Just scan the HomeKit code found directly on the accessory or in its instructions, and it’s instantly paired with your iOS device. The Home app will also recognize existing HomeKit accessories that have been set up using other apps.
