Vacation mode, name automation and room / accessory restrictions.

Cupertino, October 10, 2019

These are my three most desirable wish lists for Homekit. The first is vacation mode. In such a state, lights would be randomly triggered and extinguished throughout the house to make it look like someone is home. I know Lutron has this feature built into their app, but it would be really nice for Apple to add this feature naturally in Homekit. Another feature I would like to see is the ability to give each automation a custom name. With so many automations, it can once be very confusing to remember what is what. The last and perhaps most desirable feature would be the ability to restrict certain accessories or rooms in the house from specific people with access to the home. I know this feature is in great demand by others and I hope it is only a matter of time before it is added. Lastly, I would like to see the individual room backgrounds synchronized on all devices. Let me know what features you hope to see in future updates and your thoughts on my suggestions.
