HomeKit apps enable users to discover compatible accessories and configure them. Users can also create actions to control accessories (such as a thermostats or lighting), group them together, and trigger them by using Siri. HomeKit supports remote access to accessories, multiple user devices, and multiple users. HomeKit also ensures users’ security and privacy.
