    i love homekit! i recently set up some philips hue lights and a nanolead aurora and they work so well together, especially with siri!

    Why do we have to look at you for so long in all your videos? I'd rather see more shots of the product you're talking about

    No good things to talk about on the sensi thermostat. Those things suck all the way. If you don’t believe me read the reviews on Amazon. The things are dangerous and I would never put one in my house.

    I feel the need to point out that when it comes to buttons, Philips Hue switches can now be programmed to scenes via the Apple Home app; this allows you to replicate the simple “on/off switch” that grandma might need.

    Great video, but I would have loved to hear a shout out to homebridge at the end. Many people following macrumors are savvy enough to use it. I personally couldn't do without it.

    Siri will not unlock my Schlage Smart Lock I have to unlock my iPhone to unlock my Schlage Smart Lock is this the way it is with all Smart Locks

    Don't most of these devices require a hub of some sort to be able to communicate with the Home feature of Apple?

    Please don’t say “hey Siri” in your videos. It turned on my fan and HomePod replied and scared the hell out of me.

    Siri is just so damn stupid when compared to Google Home. :/ But hey, it does the trick if you are only looking to control your HomeKit enabled devices.

    It is funny how with all the smart control to control devices we are making hard switch to control those “soft switch” lol. It is like we gone so far in circle ended up just having a hard button to turn on the light. At that point just get a regular switch lol. (Yes I get it that you can do scene with a switch but if you have 1-2 devices it make no sense )

    Caseta Wireless offers the best added value to your home because it controls lighting, but keeps the switch functionality in tact so when you go to sell your home, you can market it as ‘smart’.

    Loved the video. Can you do some review of HomeKit compatible cameras?

    Lutron Caseta switches are my jam. Had the Philips Hue lights but the disconnect between the lights and the wall switch was maddening. Couldn't convince myself that using my phone was superior to using an analogue wall switch 100% of the time.

    For a cheaper alternative when getting started with a smart home i can really recommend IKEAS tradfri line-up, it works with Apple Homekit! I have all lights in my apartment and it works great. A plus is that a Phillips Hue hub can control the IKEA bulbs if you want to upgrade to Hue. But it doesnt work the other way around..

    Can't believe you didn't mention Lutron Caseta, definitely a top homekit accessory, possibly the best. Also the Chamberlain garage door controllers, kwikset premis deadbolt, and ihome plugs including their outdoor plug are all great.
