HomeKit

Homekit


 

HomeKit is a new initiative recently introduced by Apple and is designed as an "integration layer" between all existing and new Home Automation technologies.

Apple HomeKit has the rather lofty goal of bringing all these disparate systems together by enabling their Apps to interconnect, allowing your devices to work together and make them controllable in more ways, straight from your iPhone or iPad.

Scene capabilities will allow you to set devices across all manner of technologies all with a single command - your "Leaving Home" Scene could turn off your Philips Hue lighting, lower the temperature on your Nest Thermostat, lock your Yale door locks and arm your Z-Wave security system.

HomeKit promises to be an exciting additional to Home Automation and we can't wait to see it reach its full potential over the coming months!

We regularly add new guides and would appreciate any feedback or suggestions you may have, email us at feedback@vesternet.com
