Smart Home Projects With HomeKit To Get The Most Out Of Your Devices
With forced isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, most of us are stuck in our homes. However, if you want to work on your HomeKit setup, that would be a good use of the time. The August Smart Lock is very easy to install and will take less than twenty minutes. It is also very easy to use and works smoothly with the HomeKit. Moving on to security, HomeKit is highly compatible with the Abode security system.
A few things I am doing are to trigger my backyard lights when the back door is opened and turn on a couple of lamps in the morning when the abode motion sensor detects motion after 5:00 AM.
You can also create automation by integrating products from different vendors. By doing this, you will be able to, for instance, automate lighting based on motion sensors. Another cool thing is to use Philips Hue lights and dim them to a certain percentage. You can make use of Hue Play to develop a backlight behind your TV to have a movie experience. If you are concerned about security, Apple offers three levels of security for devices paired with HomeKit routers – Restrict to Home, Automatic, and No Restriction. Lastly, don’t forget to update the HomeKit firmware to stay updated always.
