“Hey Siri, I’m home”

Since WWDC back at June 2014, I’m pretty sure theres many of you out there are wondering what is this home icon apps does on your iOS device after an update. That app, ladies and gentleman — is the new revolution to home automation — HomeKit.
Back in the days, we’ve always wanted to turn off our floor lamp without having to walk to it and physically turn it off. Well now, thanks to Apple HomeKit, our dream has became a reality — and more…
With the Home app, now you can easily and securely control all your HomeKit accessories. Simply ask Siri to turn off the lights from your iPhone. See who’s at the front door on your iPad. Control things remotely with the help of Apple TV. Even tell your new HomePod to turn up the music. The Home app makes all your connected devices work harder — and smarter — for you.
Now with Home, you could automate your entire house with just a tap or your voice. Home allows you to set scenes, which enable multiple accessories to work in combination — all with a single command. So you can create a scene named “Leaving Home” that turns off the lights and locks your doors.
As all of us know, Apple is very finicky about security. So by using Home with all your HomeKit compatible accessories — your house is fully secured. Because the transmission between you and your home are encrypted using some of the best security that exist by Apple.
