home automations

2. First introduced on the market in 2014, during Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, Apple’s proprietary software and hardware smart home platform has gradually improved. New features were added and more devices were made compatible, allowing homeowners to easily communicate with their smart appliances and control what is going on in their home via their Apple device – a smart phone, a watch or an iPad. So, how does it work?If you have a smart home equipped with the Apple HomeKit, you can control various devices in a few quick commands using the specific app on your phone or even via Siri, the personal assistant Apple offers. Depending on the compatible hardware you have, this means you can control smart devices like thermostats, lighting, and even home security cameras and alarms. Have I turned off the lights?Have I unplugged the iron?Have I locked the door?All these questions are a thing of the past with Apple’s HomeKit. Your home’s safety is now at your fingertips. While being able to automate your home lighting or the heating via smart devices is certainly useful, making life easier, the ability to automate home security is a truly exciting prospect. Let’s take a closer look at how to use Apple’s HomeKit to provide enhanced home security:Smart locks create a more secure homeWith Apple HomeKit, your house keys are one step closer to becoming a museum artifact.

The install was straightforward and completed in under 5 minutes. For the 2nd installation I did I was on some decorative uneven stone and this was quite the challenge as it would be for any doorbell installation. I went down and got some quickrete patching material from Home Depot and filled in the grout and made a nice circle the size and shape of the SkyBell provided base. I was able to get one screw hole drilled using the SkyBell provided drill bit worked fine, however I had to use glue for the other side. I recommend Loctite Outdoor Adhesive, it dry’s fast and clear and worked PERFECT. I have to say with only 1 screw in and the glue this device was not going anywhere.
