Apple targets the connected home with HomeKit

Services & Software
HomeKit. [APPLAUSE] There are a lot of great home automation devices coming on the market these days and they have companion apps, things like lights. And door locks, web cams, garage doors and thermostats. But you know, each of them will have their own application and they end up defining their own network protocol, their own security mechanisms. Well we thought we could bring some rationality to this space. We started working with the leaders in home automation devices. And we've come up with a home kit with a common network protocol that has secure pairing to ensure that only your iPhone can open your garage door. Or unlock your door. And in addition to being able to control individual devices in your home, with home kit you can group devices and change it into scenes and then with Siri integration you can say something like get ready for bed and be assured your garage door is closed, your door is locked, the thermostat is lowered and your lights are dim. That home get. [NOISE]
