Works with Apple HomeKit


Buying HomeKit devices.

Benefits of using tech with HomeKit compatibility. 

You can experience the convenience of home automation when you use smart home devices that work with Apple HomeKit. From dimming your lights to adjusting the room’s temperature, HomeKit-compatible devices let you seamlessly automate daily tasks by scheduling them ahead of time or using vocal commands with your Apple HomePod smart speaker. If you’re away from home and want to activate your HomeKit camera or program your lights to give the appearance that someone is inside, you can do that remotely with the Home App on your iPad or iPhone. When you’re at home and tucked in for the night with a good book, simply ask Siri to turn off the lights while you stay cozy in bed. Another benefit to using secure HomeKit video and audio accessories is that communication is end-to-end encrypted and private. Whether you want hands-free monitoring of your HomeKit security system or you’re shopping for a thermostat that works with your HomeKit, Best Buy offers plenty of options so that it’s easy to find the best HomeKit-enabled devices for your needs.

Setting up your HomeKit-compatible devices.

Once everything is set up, you can play your favorite music, make phone calls and operate your Apple TV by using your voice. The first step to start using your HomeKit accessories is to connect the HomeKit to your Wi-Fi network. Next, you’ll follow the directions to pair each item with the Home App and your Apple smart speaker. To group tasks together based on the time you wake up each day or other events, such as leaving the house, you can program scenes that control multiple HomeKit accessories with single commands like “Good Morning” or “Leaving Home." If you need help setting up any of your Apple HomeKit accessories, rely on Best Buy for professional smart home services. Also, our Geek Squad® Agents can recommend upgrades to ensure you have a strong Wi-Fi signal throughout your space, so you can get the most out of Apple HomeKit and other smart products inside your home.
