Apple HomeKit is an excellent center for all your smart devices this is integrated with iOS. Rather than having to control everything from multiple applications, you have a central location to turn on lights, control smart cameras, and more.

Once you have found your own home with a few rooms, you will have even more options for HomeKit smart appliances. Rather than make sure you do not get anything that will not accompany you when you move (even if there are still smart portable objects in this list), you can install permanently smart systems that everything works with a simple "Hey Siri." & nbsp; & nbsp;

Here are the best Apple HomeKit compatible devices for medium-sized homes:

Smart Starter Kit for LED Bulb, 60W equivalent, light white Philips Hue

One of the simplest ways to build a new smart home is to Philips Hue light kit. Smart light bulbs work with HomeLink through the hub. The interest of this center is that it is a one-time investment. Once you have one, you can control up to 50 ampoules. So what can you do with all these smart light bulbs? Well, you can configure routines based on the time of day or the presence of people at home. You can control the lights with Siri without having to move near a switch. You can also use HomeKit (or the Hue app) to change your settings and control your system when you're not at home. You will find that the question quickly moves from "What can I do?" To "What other can I do?"

Wemo Mini Smart Plug

You will find dozens of scenarios in which Wemo Mini Smart Plug would be helpful. Turn your Christmas tree lights on (or off) when you are at home (or elsewhere). Start your coffee maker each morning at a set time. You can also control a lamp with Siri. Plus, it does not take much space, so you do not need to sacrifice two outlets just to make one of them smart.

Rachio

Rachio eliminates the uncertainties of keeping a healthy lawn. the Rachio watering controller is minimalist, attractive and eminently practical if you have grass around your house. Think "Nest, but for lawns" and you are on the right track. The real magic of the system lies in the application. There is no timer or place to create schedules on the hardware itself. You can run the system manually from the controllerbut you would miss the point if that was all you were doing. Once online, Rachio collects hyper-local weather data in real time for your home. Once you have told him about the areas he is going to water (the device I tested can control up to 16 zones), it determines the frequency of watering, which allows you to no longer program your tasks. & nbsp;

ecobee& nbsp;

The last ecobee Smart Thermostat It may be a full Alexa device, but it also fits perfectly with Apple HomeKit. In addition to the voice control, you can use the application, the HomeKit or the user-friendly touch screen to set the target temperatures for each hour of the day. He may not be learning your schedule like Nest, but his integration with HomeKit gives him more visibility. Apple will use remote sensors (redesigned for this version) to track the temperatures and occupancy of your home. In your absence, ecobee will go into Away mode so your system will not work in your absence. & Nbsp;

August Smart Lock

One of my favorite stuff in a HomeKit home is to integrate the smart lock from the entrance door to the system. So, the HomeKit knows when someone has arrived or gone and can adjust the thermostat settings accordingly. The third generation lock of August is a smart and reliable deadbolt that detects your arrival or exit from home and unlocks it without you having to do anything, except walk to your door. You can also control the lock through the application and, with the Connect Hub (included in this package), you can also use Siri to enable it. Do not worry, you can not open the door with your voice without also knowing the access code. & Nbsp;
