With HomeKit, now you can use your iOS device to connect the products you use in your home
You use your iPhone every day — to stay in touch with people, stay organized, help manage your health and fitness, and even replace your wallet.

With HomeKit, let your voice be the boss
Siri knows the types of HomeKit-enabled products you have in your home as well as their status. So you can ask Siri to turn an appliance on or off. “Turn on the upstairs lights”, “Set the Tahoe house to 72 degrees”, “Turn on the printer in the office”, “Lock the front door”.
Or just set one of your scenes. HomeKit lets you create scenes to connect and control appliance settings in different combinations. For example:
Wake Up – Open the shades and let the morning light in + Start the electric kettle so the water is ready for your tea + Turn up the thermostat before you get out of bed.
Arrive home – Turn on the lights so you don´t come home to a dark house + Unlock the front door without having to hunt for a key + Set the thermostat so it’s already comfortable when you walk in the door.
Sometimes, your home can control itself
You can set up your home products to turn on or off automatically based on other triggers. So without you even giving commands, your home is always at the ready.
Set your lights to turn on as soon as you pull up to the house with your location. Have your bathroom heater turn on at 6:00 pm., before you get out of bed. Use a motion sensor in the doorway to turn your kitchen lights on when you walk in.
