HomeKit Weekly: Getting started with Apple’s Home app on iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch
HomeKit Weekly is a new series focused on smart home accessories, automation tips and tricks, and everything to do with Apple’s smart home framework.
In our inaugural edition of HomeKit Weekly, we’re starting with the basics: becoming familiar with Apple’s Home app to control HomeKit. Apple’s Home app is a lot more polished than smart home control in Amazon’s Alexa app, but the Home app can feel foreign to new users despite its name. That was certainly my experience on day one of running iOS 10, but you can overcome the learning curve with experience.
