Apple HomeKit has just become smarter with Siri-controlled devices and package detection

Apple’s HomeKit lags behind Alexa and Google Home, but gains some new features that should help it get a little closer to those other smart platforms at home. At WWDC 2021, Apple previewed several new features for its network, including the ability to detect packets and view security camera streams on Apple TV.

Packet detection

There aren’t a lot of security cameras that fully integrate with HomeKit – Logitech’s Circle View video ringtone, security camera and EufyCam 2 Pro are among the few – but with the upgrade to HomeKit, these cameras will be able to detect when someone leaves a package your door.
