HomeKit secure camcorders can notify you when a package has arrived starting with iOS 15

Starting with iOS 15 and iPadOS 15, which will be released publicly in the fall, security cameras and video sounds that support HomeKit Secure Video can now detect and notify you when a package has been delivered.

HomeKit Secure Video, available on iOS 13.2 and later, uses iCloud to securely stream and store videos from HomeKit-compatible, indoor and outdoor compatible end-to-end encrypted cameras and ringtones. HomeKit Secure camcorders and ringtones are managed through the Home application just like other HomeKit accessories.

Apple today introduced a new iCloud + subscription plan that combines Apple’s existing iCloud storage levels with privacy features such as Hide My Email, iCloud Private Relay and Extended HomeKit Secure Video support at no extra cost.

iCloud + extends HomeKit Secure Video, allowing unlimited cameras:

  • 50 GB iCloud storage with a HomeKit Secure camcorder for $ 0.99 per month
  • 200 GB iCloud storage with up to five HomeKit Secure camcorders for $ 2.99 per month
  • 2 TB iCloud storage with an unlimited number of HomeKit Secure camcorders for $ 9.99 per month

The first beta of iOS 15 and iPadOS 15 were released for developers earlier today, and the public beta will be released in July, according to Apple.
