Apple Home is a popular smart home hub for iPhone users. If users want to find out which smart home accessories are compatible with HomeKit, they can easily do so by looking at the box. Apple's support of the Matter smart home standard has also expanded HomeKit compatibility. Matter ensures that smart home accessories are compatible with major brands like Apple, Google, Samsung, and Amazon. This means that more products will work with Apple Home in the future.
Most smart home networks have support badges on the packaging of compatible products, and Apple Home is no exception. There are different types of badges that buyers can find on compatible products. Accessories with the 'Works With Apple Home' and 'Matter' badges have full HomeKit support and can be added to an Apple Home without any issues. The 'Works With Apple AirPlay' badge indicates that music and audio can be AirPlayed, while the rectangular 'Works With Apple AirPlay' badge indicates that video and visual content can be played via AirPlay. However, having an AirPlay badge does not necessarily mean that a product is HomeKit compatible, which can be confusing.
To see the full list of smart home accessories that are compatible with Apple Home, users can visit Apple's website where the list is regularly updated. Another easy way to see compatible products is by visiting Apple's online store under the "Accessories" tab and the "TV & Home" category. Here, users can find Apple Home compatible products directly from the Apple Store, including accessories from Belkin, Logitech, and Nanoleaf. It's important to note that not all HomeKit-enabled products are sold through Apple, so options may be limited. However, purchasing directly from Apple ensures that a product is HomeKit compatible.
