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 fully renovated experience.

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

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

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

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

A convenient Lock Screen widget on iPhone lets you check your home at a glance.

Quickly access the Home app via Control Centre.

All your accessories in one app? Smart.

The Home app is already compatible with, and helps control, a wide variety of smart home accessories1 — 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.

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,3 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 Matter4 — 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. 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.

Home school.
