- On an iPhone or iPad open the Home app and click the small home icon in the upper left.
- In the People section, click Invite .
- Enter iCloud the email address of the person you want to invite, or tap the "+" sign to find someone in your contact list.
- Tap Send Invite .
This process is almost identical on a Mac, but you can access the People list, via the Edit / Edit Home menu.
The recipient will be notified of the invitation and will be invited to accept. Here's how they look:
Once accepted, they appear in your People list. Pressing their name will display an additional screen where you can turn Remote access on or off. With remote access, they can control your HomeKit devices when they're away and not on your Wi-Fi network. If you have a home hub, they can even control accessories with the voice with Siri. If you do not have a home name, they must make some changes manually in the home application.
Toggle Allow editing gives them more control over your HomeKit setup so they can add and remove accessories or even invite others to control devices.
If you need to delete someone from your folk list, just press Remove Person at the bottom of this screen to revoke access to the HomeKit setup.
