A: With HomeKit-compatible devices, you can easily and securely control all your HomeKit accessories. Many of these devices allow you to activate or dim your lights, control the thermostat’s temperature, lock and unlock your door, or ask Siri who’s at the front door. You could even control things remotely while you’re away from home with the help of an iPad, HomePod or Apple TV.
As there are many different brands providing multiple options to build and create the perfect smart home setup, many times this leaves customers having to use more than one application, typically one that has been developed by the manufacturer, to control these devices. The advantage of HomeKit is that it allows you to use the Home app to access and control all of these devices from one centralized location. The Home app makes all your connected devices work harder — and smarter — for you.
