Updating Home Widget for HomeKit with new shortcuts

Cupertino, August 9, 2023

Home Widget for HomeKit is an iOS app that provides advanced tools to enhance interaction with HomeKit accessories.

Following the release of iOS 16.4 to the public on Monday, the app has been updated with new shortcuts and a new shutter and blind dimming action.

For those unfamiliar with the app, Home Widget for HomeKit offers quick access to home automation right from the iOS home screen and lock screen.

With iOS 16.4, Apple has enabled new types of interactions with the Shortcuts app, including an option to lock the device after running a shortcut.

And Home Widget for HomeKit now supports this shortcut.

As described by the developer behind the app, users can enable a "relock" feature that automatically locks the iPhone after running a Home Widget shortcut from the lock screen.

Of course, this requires the user to update their iPhone to iOS 16.4 or later.

But this is not the only new feature coming with the update.

Version 1.2.7 of the app adds a dimming action type for shutters and blinds.

This allows users to precisely control the position using a slider.

There's also a new Launch Shortcut, improvements to the Dimmer switch, and bug fixes.

I've added an iPhone re-lock feature after using the Lock Screen widget, a shutter/shutter position dimmer, a new shortcut action, and more.

Thank you all for your continued support and I hope these new features will make your experience even better.

Make sure to update your device's operating system to the latest version to take advantage of the iPhone relock feature.

Home Widget for HomeKit supports Home Screen and Locked Screen widgets.

You can use the app to check the status of HomeKit accessories or even create custom accessory scenes with it.

The app is available for free on the App Store, although some features require a monthly subscription that costs just 49 cents.

If you prefer, a lifetime license is also available for $9.99.
