Home app

The foundation for a smarter home.

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 HomePod, HomePod mini or 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.

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

View up to four cameras at once to quickly make sure each room is just as you left it.

Rooms and Favourite 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 Centre.

Coming later this year

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

HomePod, HomePod mini and Apple TV. The keys to even more control.

The Home app can do even more with the help of your HomePod, HomePod mini or Apple TV. Each one can be set up as a smart home hub,2 giving you access to your home while you’re away and letting you automate all of your home’s smart accessories. They are also essential building blocks for Matter3 — the smart home industry standard that is compatible with more accessories, and even connects 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 it. Your accessories are controlled by your Apple devices instead of the cloud, and communication is encrypted end to end. So only you and the people you choose can access your data.
