HomeKit is Apple’s proprietary software and hardware smart-home platform, letting you control many of the most popular smart-home devices, including lights, switches, door locks, and thermostats. HomeKit devices link up to each other with relatively little effort and can be controlled not only via an app but also with your voice via Apple’s virtual assistant, Siri.
Unlike most current smart-home platforms, HomeKit doesn’t require the use of a hub to control groups of devices, though an Apple TV (or an iOS device you leave at home) is required to act as a gateway when you’re away. But even without a hub, HomeKit devices can easily be configured to work together as part of a modest home automation setup, and requires less fuss and troubleshooting than most other smart-home platforms.
