What Does Apple HomeKit Do?

Before we get into the smart blinds, it’s important to understand what the Apple HomeKit does. HomeKit is a smart technology tool that allows you to control your smart home products straight from any Apple device. This can be your iPhone, iPad, iMac, or whatever else you may have. 

The beauty of using the HomeKit is that you can access your smart home devices from anywhere on your phone. Not home and want to turn the lights off? Hop on your phone and that is possible. This technology is also going to allow you to access your smart blinds from anywhere at any time. 

For HomeKit to work properly, you’ll need a hub device in your home. This can be an iPad, Apple TV or HomePod. If you are new to smart home technology, you can always go to an Apple Store to have someone assist you in finding the right hub product. Whatever you choose as the hub needs to be connected to WiFi in order to be accessible by your devices and smart blinds.

After you have the hardware setup, you simply setup the Home app on your preferred Apple devices. It is quick and easy, and the app is very intuitive. You’ll get the hang of it in no time. Once you’re all setup, it’s time to connect your HomeKit to your SmartWings smart blinds. 

Connecting SmartWings Smart Blinds to HomeKit

Now that you’ve got your HomeKit setup and your stylish SmartWings blinds, it’s time to connect the two. You can do this by simply opening the HomeKit app on your preferred device and scanning the QR code on the bottom rod of your smart blinds. This will add the blinds directly to your HomeKit app. You will then need to choose where the blinds are located from the places in your home you’ve added to the app.

The Home app will give you the option to name your smart blinds, and then you’re done! If you have multiple sets of smart blinds around the houe, be sure to fgive them distinct names so you don’t confuse them. Now you are ready to use your smart blinds with your HomeKit without any additional bridges or plug ins.

Using Your Smart Blinds

The app is simple to use and you can make many adjustments to your blinds right from your phone. There are many benefits to having your smart blinds connected to HomeKit.

You can also use the app to put your smart blinds on a schedule. The blinds can be scheduled around your routine to help you go to bed and wake up naturally. You can also schedule them to open and close throughout the day for optimum lighting and to keep your furnishing from experiencing sun damage due to long exposure. There are many benefits to having your smart blinds set up with Apple HomeKit.
