Apple's home app is great when it comes to controlling your smart home accessories. But when you start adding automations to your home, you quickly meet the limits of your home program. HomeKit is much more capable and flexible than Apple has to offer.
There is another home app in the App Store developed by Matthias Hochgatterer. This app has been around for over 3 years and was released long before Apple introduced its Home app with iOS 10. The app is a complete HomeKit app that lets you configure, control and automate HomeKit accessories.
You can configure your home, create rooms and zones, and arrange accessories as you like. You can create accessory groups to group multiple devices together. The app even creates smart groups for you so you can turn off all the lights in your home with a single touch.
The app offers several in-day widgets and a watchOS app to show your most important accessories in an instant. There is even a dedicated camera widget, where all your favorite cameras are listed.
One of the best known features of the home program is that you can create automations
that are not possible with any other HomeKit app. For example, you can turn on your heater when the current temperature falls below a certain limit. There are endless possibilities to create your own smart home with HomeKit and the alternative home.
Now is the best time to get a copy of the Matthias Hochgatterers Home app because it is 30% off until March 4, 201
