Home+ 4 is the only full featured HomeKit app on the App Store which supports all HomeKit automation features. You can control all your HomeKit accessories from different manufacturers in one app and create your very own smart home.
Home+ 4 was completely redesigned for iOS 13 and looks great in Light and Dark Mode. You can also change the icons of your accessories to better match the appearance of your smart accessories. Home 4 also lets you choose a different app icon to better match your Home Screen.
Home allows you to automate your home with automations. For example you can raise the temperature in your living room if the temperature drops below 68°F and somebody is at home.
You can control multiple accessories at once using Groups. For example you can turn on all lights in the living room and set the brightness to 50%.
There are multiple widgets available to control your favorite accessories, cameras, groups and scenes.
On your Apple Watch you can see all your favorite accessories, cameras, groups and scenes and control them with a single tap.
The Home app only works with HomeKit compatible accessories.
Home+ 4 brings a new visual design and improved automation features.
The UI was redesigned and offers a new set of icons for all accessory types.
Furthermore you can choose between a set of different accessory icons.
On iOS 13, the app supports Dark Mode.
There are also new app icons available under the Settings tab.
The main tab is now the Accessories tab (previously Services) where you find all accessories.
You can quickly turn devices on and off with a simple tap.
A long press reveals the details of an accessory.
The list of accessories can also be customised. You can hide accessories and change the order to better fit your needs. The same can be done for services and characteristics contained in an accessory.
Managing characteristic events, conditions and actions in triggers is now easier and more powerful. You can add more than one condition per characteristic to a trigger. For example a condition for the current temperature to be between a specific range. Also string characteristics are now supported in triggers and scenes as well. This opens up new possibilities to automate your accessories.
- The order of HomeKit items is now synchronised between your devices using iCloud.
- Scenes and triggers can be duplicated.
- Multiple scenes can be merged into one.
- Updated user interface with tile layout.
- Camera snapshots are now correctly displayed.
Ratings and Reviews
The only app for Homekit automation
Very intuitive if a little overwhelming in what actions and triggers are actually available in homekit devices yet completely obscured in Apples own app.
Great product, I’m glad I downloaded it years back when it was only £2, before I even had a homekit product setup at home.
Brilliant new UI, this is still the best app for HomeKit automations. The first release have some tiny bugs but I’m sure they’ll be fixed in the next update.
Love this app!
Really great HomeKit manager
I'm using Home with the opensource Homebridge app to control my Nest, Logitech Harmony and some other things that don't support HomeKit.
It's such a clean and simple app. Setup was easy, the layout makes sense and it exposes the full power of HomeKit to users.
The price is on the high side, but I am ok with that, home automation is expensive and I want the developer to be able to justify working on this app. I've spoken with him about feature requests and he's been super responsive and nice :)
Up to six family members will be able to use this app with Family Sharing enabled.
