Home – Smart Home Automation
By Matthias Hochgatterer
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
Home is the only full featured HomeKit app on the App Store which supports all HomeKit features – including the new automation features in iOS 11. You can control all your HomeKit accessories from different manufacturers in one app.
Home allows you to automate your accessories using triggers. For example you can raise the temperature in your living room if the temperature drops below 68°F and somebody is at home.
You can control multiple accessories at once using Groups. For example you can turn on all lights in the living room and set the brightness to 50%.
Your most important services, groups and scenes can be marked as favorite. Favorites are listed in the Today View and on Apple Watch.
Use Quick Actions to execute your scenes right from the Home screen. Take a quick look at your accessories using Peek and Pop.
Outlets and light bulbs can now be control using swipe actions. You can toggle the power state by swiping to the left. Swiping to the right lets you quickly change the brightness of lights.
The Home app only works with HomeKit compatible accessories.

Does anyone know?
Does anyone know why this app is never available as the widget? Every time I swipe down to access it, I see it, but always says unable to load
Clunky and buggy
The UI is not intuitive and poorly designed. The app itself is buggy; I can’t properly select scenes. I do appreciate that it exposes more control over HomeKit, but I found I was able to accomplish simple automations more conveniently and efficiently using the free Elgato Eve app instead of this one.
You already have this.
There’s nothing in this app that you can’t do with the Home app that comes with your device.
