Ahead of CES 2022, your HomeKit Insider hosts will tackle a wide variety of listener questions, ranging from the simple — like how to name your smarthome devices — to more complex, like how HomeKit handles multiple garage doors. The news is light this week, though we expect a host of HomeKit-related announcements to come from the 2022 Consumer Electronics Show also taking place this week. While we wait, we answer many of our audience's questions. Alex Hall wanted to inquire about LED light panels that are HomeKit compatible and that can be mounted on the ceiling. Chris Doiron has asked what the correct nomenclature is for naming devices in your smart home. This can become especially complicated in rooms with several of the same device type. Joshua Meier was recently having trouble programming new automations in his home and wanted some suggestions on what he could try to fix the problem. David Garcia wondered what the best option is to control his existing ceiling fan with HomeKit. Jim Heatherly wondered how HomeKit knows which garage door opener to present in CarPlay for homes with multiple doors connected to HomeKit. Angel Vargus asked what was going on with Eufy recently, given that the company's recent cameras don't include HomeKit support. We were asked on Twitter what we thought of the new LifX switch that appears to include support for HomeKit.
