Home app

The foundation for a smarter home.

The Home app UI displayed on Mac, iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch.

The Home app makes it easier to control all your smart home accessories1 — on all your Apple devices. It’s secure and protects your personal data. And with Apple TV set up as the ultimate home hub, the Home app unlocks the full potential of your smart home.

A truly welcoming experience.

Categories like Lights, Security, and Climate are at the top of the Home tab, giving you instant access to accessories and their status.

Color-coordinated icons help you find the accessories you’re looking for.

Rooms and Favorite Accessories are grouped in the Home tab, so you can easily view and control your smart devices.

Get an at-a-glance look with the Lock Screen widget on iPhone, or quickly access the Home app via Control Center.

Coming this fall

Guest access lets you assign permissions to door locks and alarm systems — so the trusted people in your life can come and go for as long as you allow.

All your accessories in one app? Smart.

The Home app is already compatible with, and helps control, a wide variety of smart home accessories — with more on the way every day. And setting up a smart home accessory is simple and secure. Just scan the accessory to pair it with the Home app.

Apple TV. The key to even more control.

The Home app can do even more with the help of your Apple TV. It can be set up as a smart home hub2, giving you access to your home while you’re away, and letting you automate all of your home’s smart accessories. And your Apple TV hub is also an essential building block for Matter3 — the new smart home industry standard that will be compatible with more accessories, and even connect them across platforms.

Your data is private property.

Privacy at home is more important than ever. That’s why your Home app data is stored in a way that Apple can’t read. Your accessories are controlled by your Apple devices instead of the cloud. So only you and the people you choose can access your data.

Home school.
