Big Apple enthusiast? Then Apple's HomeKit is your home automation solution! Now you can tell Siri to turn off your lights.
Homekit is Apple's home automation system. Now you have a very good reason to never put your iPhone or iPad away again: they control the smart devices in your house! Via the HomeKit platform, devices connected to an iPhone can "talk" to each other.
Your iPhone was already a fantastic product and now you can even turn on your lights, control your heating, close curtains with 1 push of a button or open your garage doors. Of course you operate on his Apple's: with Siri!
You don't even need a base station for this. This is only necessary if you want to work with - preset - scenes and / or you want to receive information and control devices outside the home. By default your lighting and heating are on at 5:00 PM. cannot do without a base station. If you want this, you need an Apple TV.
If you choose Apple, you get Apple. Going crazy once and buying an Android Smartphone is not a good idea, because HomeKit is very attached to Siri. And therefore only works with Apple products.
