APPLE HOMEKIT

The first of the big three home automation platforms to launch, HomeKit is Apple's software framework for smart-home devices. Requiring enrollment in Apple's MFi program and software authentication, products approved for HomeKit are few and far between, compared to those compatible with Amazon's Alexa or Google's Connected Home. Despite this, seamless integration with Apple products and convenient scene automation, have made it the go-to system for Apple enthusiasts.
