HomeKit is part of the Apple universe and bundles smart devices under one interface. The advantage is that HomeKit combines several devices and control centers from the smart home in one app, making control very easy. You can use the corresponding automations to control the different devices in dependence on each other or define your own routines for your smart home. HomeKit is limited to the use of Apple devices, such as the iPad, iPhone or Apple TV. To create automations, you need a device that is permanently active in your home network. This could be the HomePod, Apple TV or an iPad. This device serves as the control center for your HomeKit smart home and must be permanently in this network for remote access. However, without outside control, you can also use a single iPhone. HomeKit also gives you the ability to allow other Apple users to access your smart home. This makes it easy for your visitors to control the lights, so they too can get the feel of a smart home.
