The best Apple HomeKit devices in consumer report tests

Cupertino, October 9, 2021

Compared to rivals Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, which support tens of thousands of smart home devices, the Apple HomeKit is more limited.

"There are fewer devices available in the HomeKit ecosystem, so finding something that delivers the functionality you want may be more difficult," says Bernie Deitrick, one of CR's multiple test engineers for smart home products.

But I covered you. To help you find the best HomeKit compatible smart home devices, we've completed high-performance models based on hundreds of hours of testing from our reviews of smart speakers, security cameras, smart thermostats, smart locks, smart controllers for sprinklers, and others.

HomeKit, which consists of the Apple Home app and the Siri digital assistant, lets you integrate different smart devices from home: tell Siri "good morning" and turn on the lights, raise the blinds, and start playing your favorite playlist Morning.
