Home – Smart Home Automation
By Matthias Hochgatterer
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Home is the only full featured HomeKit app on the App Store which supports all HomeKit features – including scenes and triggers. You can control all your HomeKit accessories from different manufacturers in one app.
Home allows you to create timer and event triggers. For example an event trigger raises the room temperature when you leave the office after sunset only if the current temperature is lower than 20°C.
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.
You can access your HomeKit accessories remotely by enabling Remote Access in iOS Settings > Home and by having a 3rd generation Apple TV connected to your local network.
3D Touch Support
Use Quick Actions to execute your scenes right from the Home screen on iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus. 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.
What's New in Version 2.1.4
- Adds support for air purifier, de-/humidifier, heater and cooler
- Fixes in issue where temperature was shown wrong if step value was less than 1 degree
This is a solid alternative to the native apple offering. It seems to be lacking support for cameras which is a bummer. Otherwise I like the current version as much as previous versions.
