Homekit is home automation, not home security.

Homekit is home automation, not home security.

I know it’s fun to install automations that can approximate a security system, but it’s not a replacement for a monitored security system. Homekit is good enough to catch most package thefts or spy on those who enter your property, but it is not a replacement for a security system that is responsible for 24-hour surveillance and calling the police. / firefighter / doctor. Be careful and do not expect a complete security system from a free home automation system.
