This app brings HomeKit widgets directly to your iOS home screen


Over the past few weeks, I have been testing Home Widget for HomeKit, and it has grown into an app that I have started using on a daily basis. If you want quick access to all of your HomeKit accessories without having to launch the app or go to Control Center, read on to find out more.

I’m not sure why Apple didn’t integrate HomeKit access into the iOS Home screen, but Home Widget fixes the problem for me. You can add small, medium, or large panels for almost any HomeKit access combination. The functionality includes individual props, scenes or groups of props. When I first accessed it, I immediately added a widget for my August Lock in case the automatic unlocking failed or I had to open it manually without launching an app.

Widgets include a plethora of customization options including color, background, transparency, blur, and more. If you also want to access HomeKit on your iPad, Home Widget includes built-in iCloud sync so that all your created widgets are available on all your devices. Home Widget maintains the status of accessories just like in iOS Control Center, so if a lamp is on the widget is bright, if it is off it is dark.

Home Widget is available for free download and all features are unlocked with a subscription of $ 0.49 / month or a one-time unlock of $ 9.99. Watch the video below to learn more about how it works.
