Can it unlock the door automatically when I return home?

I know it can be unlocked with the iPhone, but can it be set to open automatically when Homekit senses my iPhone returning home?

  • HomeKit has default "scene"s for arriving home and leaving home and can take any number of different actions. I presume this uses the same geofencing technique that Reminders uses when you say things like "Remind me to defrost some chicken when I get home." In the HomeKit case, HomeKit detects when your iPhone is within a certain distance of your home and takes various actions: turn on lights, turn up the heat, whatever. But these would all be actions that you would program. I have a scene that turns off the lights when I go to bed. When/if I buy one of these locks, I will also have it lock and, if available, arm my alarm system and turn down the heat.
