You configure and control all the features of your smart home from the Apple HomeKit app on your iPhone or any other Apple device.
The app is where all the information comes together, is managed, controlled and coordinated according to your wishes.
Using personal scenarios, you can define activities in your home while you are not even there.
All you need is an Apple Homekit app and matching devices with the corresponding "Works with Apple Homekit" seal of approval.
The Apple Smart Home System connects to a wide variety of products from more than 100 manufacturers.
New ones are constantly being added, you can even use it to operate your lawn sprinkler remotely.
Not sure if the coffee machine is turned off? Just deactivate the respective power socket on the way.
Automatically lock the front door behind you and activate the security systems.
When you arrive home, open the garage door by voice command.

All Apple TVs are HomeKit compatible, provided the software is up to date. You also need to manage your home with the Apple Home app.
The systems are very secure. The more up-to-date your software and the more complex your password is, the less likely it is to be hacked. Also keep the number of people who have your access data to a minimum. This also reduces the probability of being hacked.
If you are an owner and user of Apple products, i.e. you own an iPhone, iPad and/or Mac, you already have the most important requirements to use Apple HomeKit. Google Home is better suited if you have an Android smartphone and a Windows PC or Chromebook.
