Your home at your command.

With the Home app, you can easily and securely control your HomeKit accessories from all your Apple devices. Turn off the lights, see who’s at
the front door, turn up the music and so much more. And with the new
HomeKit Secure Video capability it's all even more secure. The Home app makes all your connected devices work harder — and smarter — for you.

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 100 brands worldwide are committed to providing accessories that are compatible with the HomeKit framework, and the number available is growing every day. 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 or a click. You can even tell Siri things like “Turn off my bedroom lights” or “Set the scene for dinner”. You can press an icon to perform more complex tasks like dimming the lights. And you can add your AirPlay 2–enabled TV to the Home app and control it like any other accessory — turn it on and off, change the volume and switch inputs.1 The availability of HomeKit-enabled accessories may vary in each region, with the number of available accessories growing every day.

Keep an eye on your home.
And keep other eyes out.

Footage from home security cameras contains your most personal and sensitive data. With HomeKit Secure Video, activity detected by supported cameras is privately analysed by your home hub using on‑device intelligence to determine if people, pets or cars are present. When important activity is detected, you and anyone you share your Home app with will receive a rich notification that lets you view the clip straight from the Lock screen. Recorded video is available to view for 10 days from the Home app. It’s securely stored for free in supported iCloud accounts and doesn’t count against your storage limit.2 Leading camera manufacturers like Logitech announced support for HomeKit Secure Video.

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 and locks your doors. Or a scene called “Movie Night” that turns on your AirPlay 2–enabled TV and dims the lights.

Siri makes your voice
the on/off switch.

Siri knows which HomeKit‑enabled accessories you have in your home as well as their status.3 So you can ask Siri to turn an appliance on or off, dim your lights, change the song, set one of your scenes, or play movies and music on your AirPlay 2–enabled TV from your iPhone or iPad. With Apple TV or HomePod, you don’t even have to be home — for example, you can ask Siri to set the “I’m Home” scene while you’re driving. When you arrive, your house will be unlocked and bright, waiting for you to settle in.

Control your house from just about anywhere.

Using the Home app, you can access all of your home’s smart accessories remotely through Apple TV, HomePod or iPad.4 You can do things like lock your front door, view live video footage of the doorway or even ask Siri to turn on the lights — anything you normally do while using the Home app at home.

Put your home on autopilot.

Apple TV, HomePod and iPad also enable 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.

Location

Set your lights to turn on as soon as you pull up to the house.

Time

Have your lights dim at 9:00 pm, before you
go to bed.

Action

Use a motion sensor in the doorway to turn on your kitchen lights when you walk in.

Occupancy

Trigger a scene based on who’s home, like automatically turning the lights off as you leave if nobody else is there.

Getting started is easy.

Setting up a HomeKit accessory to work with the Home app is simple and secure. Just add the accessory in the Home app or scan the HomeKit setup code found on the accessory itself or in its instructions — and it’s instantly paired with your iOS or iPadOS device. The Home app will also recognise existing HomeKit accessories that have been set up using other apps.
