Description

Have you ever dreamed of controlling your HomeKit devices right from your Home screen? Of checking the status of your HomeKit accessories without moving? Of customizing each action button without spending hours on it? Of finding the same actions always in the same place on your Home Screen?

You dreamt it, we did it!

Home Widget has been specifically designed for this purpose! You can now interact with your entire HomeKit universe (accessories, scenes, groups, shortcuts and cameras) from your iPhone or iPad Home Screen with the brand new iOS Home Widgets.

We were keen to design an app as simple as possible, in the spirit of iOS Widgets so that it is both efficient and pleasant to use.

Enough talk, let’s see how it works now!

You just create a panel in the application, you then add it accessories, scenes or sensors and even shortcuts, and that's it! All you have to do is add your Widget to the Home Screen and you can control your home right away. It’s a child’s play! HomeKit camera are also supported. You can open a live feed just with one tap from your widgets.

And if you are like us and do like everything to have its place, you can customize the icons, the names, the background colors of the panels, add transparency, blur, play with settings, and endlessly customize your control panels and widgets. You can also dim your lights with an integrated dimmer or even change the color.

Whether you have only a single connected lock or an entire HomeKit home, take the time to try it out. The possibilities are truly immense.
For example, if you want to hide a button that opens your front door under the Calendar Widget, it's simple! A stack of Widgets, a "Home Widget" under the Calendar Widget and you're done.

Last but not least, the great thing about Home Widget is that it it maintains the state of accessories, just like iOS Control Center does. If a lamp is on then the button is bright, if it is off it is dark.

One last tip for the road, you can also position your HomeKit widgets on the "Today View" by swiping right from the Home Screen or Lock Screen. This gives you access to your home from the locked screen. (It remains protected by Face ID / Touch ID).

To shorten it, “Home Widget”:

• brings HomeKit widgets to iPhone and iPad
• allows you to create customizable HomeKit control panels and actions
• provides state feedback for HomeKit accessories, scenes and groups

• shares panels between different devices via iCloud
• shares panels between different accounts using AirDrop

Family sharing is enabled on all our subscriptions and in-app purchase so you can use it across all the family devices.

Turn your iPhone or iPad into a real HomeKit control center!

Some functionalities require “Home Widget Premium” which is available as a one-time in-app purchase or for those who prefer, it also comes as as an annual or monthly subscription. Its price is extremely affordable and will allow us to keep improving and maintaining this smart app.

Your feedback is invaluable so please do not hesitate to contact us to give us your thoughts or make suggestions: contact@vision-apps.com

If you like it do not hesitate to recommend this app to your friends.

Maybe I’ll be able to control HomeKit devices without my glasses

I’ve only been using the app for a short time, and so I still need to do some exploring. My main reason for getting this app is to gain the ability to control my HomeKit devices without my glasses on (HomeKit app too small for me to see). What I don’t understand is why I cannot put more than one of the same size panels (as widgets) on the same home screen page (despite being able to create multiple panels of the same size in the app). I think something in the help document refers to this, but I don’t understand. I had hoped to use multiple small panels, each assigned a unique color, to be able to recognize individual widgets. I switched strategies, trying to use a larger panel (with multiple actions), however those do not allow for assigning different colors to different actions, nor do I know how to adjust font size. So… it’s a good app, but so far I can’t get it to work for my purpose. Misc: I’d like to see a list of premium features; despite being available in my HomeKit app, this app does not list my TLC TV (Roku) as an available action. Feature wish: custom sounds when actions are performed in the widgets. I’ll keep experimenting.

Hello LesGip!

Thanks a lot for your feedback and your questions. Could you contact us by email (contact@vision-apps.com). It would be easier to discuss these points. Nevertheless here are my answers:

1 - To select what panel to display in your widget, long press on the widget then, "edit Widget" on the popover menu. It will let you change the panel displayed here and also change the widget position useful if using background images.

2 - Concerning TV, media devices and HomePod, Apple HomeKit do not expose them as other devices so we can't control them that way. But if you create some scenes or shortcut in the shortcut app, you can add action to trigger that scenes or shortcuts from the widgets.

Expecting that it answer all of your question.

Regards,

Clement

Needs fan speed control

iPhone 14 Pro Max
** Update after installing iOS 16, the home widget background position setting no longer works. It always shows as the top position even when set to bottom. Really solid app, I use it daily for quick actions. The one thing I wish it supported is fan speed control. Currently it only supports on/off toggle so the fan comes on at 100%. Wish it had functionality similar to a dimmer switch like the Home app which allows you to set the fan at 25%, 50% or 75%.

Developer Response ,

Edit: Are you using an iPhone 14 Pro or Pro Max? If not could just tell me what is your iPhone model to give a chance to fix it?

Hi Tmac-72,

Could you email me about this background position issue? (contact@vision-apps.com) I do not reproduce this problem and for the moment I have no other report of this. I would like to investigate further in order to solve this with your help if you want it.

Thanks in advance,

Clement

Excellent customizable widget

This is an amazing laucnher for HomeKit accessories as well as launching custom shortcuts created within the Shortcuts app. Allows you to create beautiful homescreen widgets by allowing you to blend into your wallpaper background rather than being stuck with an always solid black or white background. May sometimes take a few moments to refresh the current state of accessories due to the limitations Apple has put on the refresh rate of widgets. Another limitation put on by Apple and not the developer is that launching a shortcut from the widgter has to first open the Shortcuts app to run but yet Apple's Shortcuts widget doesn't for some reason. But overall I love the design of this app and it is very useful for quick access to controlling your home or speeding up your processes using shortcuts.
