What is HomeKit and what can it offer us?
For anyone who is not familiar with the subject, HomeKit is a home automation platform that allows iOS, macOS, tvOS and watchOS users to control household items from their devices.
That is, with HomeKit we could turn on the living room lights through Siri voice commands from iPhone, Apple TV or HomePod. We could also monitor the temperature of a room, connect the fan, raise the blinds and a long etcetera. Both with Siri and from the iPhone screen.
In fact, HomeKit even offers the possibility of automating actions and creating environments to activate and deactivate home automation accessories in relation to a schedule, a location or the control of another accessory or sensor.
And this is extremely convenient. For example, imagine that you arrive home one night and all the lights in the room are lit in a violet hue, along with the stove, and the blinds are raised. Everything automatically. Without even looking at your iPhone. Only thanks to the location services and HomeKit. Well … with these accessories that we recommend below, it is possible.
