Can the temperature be used to trigger other home kit devices, like a smart switch?

I am looking for a device that measures temperature that can trigger a smart switch attached to a heater when the temperature goes below a certain threshold. Has anyone done this?

    No it can not , only motion can be used as a trigger in homekit
    You have to use the eve app but for me this is not enough
    Apple needs to integrade this in homekit

  • Yes, if your smart switch is HomeKit compatible, you can use the rule engine of the Eve app to confugure such a rule.
