What you can do with Apple HomeKit®
Combine devices from different manufacturers

How it works
Enable operation for guests
It is always fascinating when tasks in your home take care of themselves. Therefore, it is no wonder your guests want to try out the new functions that your Smart Home has learnt thanks to Apple HomeKit®.
Granting access to the Apple Home App to family and friends is quick and easy: No need for an additional app.
How to protect your data
With Apple HomeKit® data security is also a top priority: If you only use your Smart Home System with Apple HomeKit® at home, your data is stored locally on the devices.
You can also control your Smart Home safely when you are on the road: With remote access via iCloud, the end-to-end encryption between iPhone and Smart Home Controller guarantees the security of your data. Remote access is made possible by a hub in form of a HomePod, iPad or Apple TV.
It is up to you to decide whether you want to access your Smart Home System when you are on the road or whether you prefer your Apple HomeKit® devices to only communicate with each other locally.
