Control your home with Apple Watch

Control your home with Apple Watch

The Home app provides a secure way to control HomeKit-enabled accessories, such as lights, locks, smart TVs, thermostats, window shades, and smart plugs. You can also send and receive Intercom messages on supported devices and view the video streams of HomeKit Secure Video cameras. With your Apple Watch, all your controls are right on your wrist.

The first time you open the Home app on your iPhone, the setup assistant helps you create a home. Then you can define rooms, add HomeKit-enabled accessories, and create scenes. Accessories, scenes, and rooms that you add on your iPhone are available on your Apple Watch.

Ask Siri. Say something like: “Turn off the lights in the office.”

View your home status

The Home app shows you the status of accessories you’re currently using—for example, the temperature registered by your thermostat or an unlocked front door. Just tap a button to control the accessory or learn more.

  1. Open the Home app on your Apple Watch.
  2. Tap any of the round buttons that appear just below your home’s name.

When multiple accessories appear in a status, tapping the status lets you control each device or set of grouped devices. For example, if all the lights are on in the living room and bedroom, you can tap the status, then turn off just the lights in the living room.

Control smart home accessories and scenes

In the Home app on your Apple Watch, the relevant scenes and accessories for that moment appear near the top of the screen. For example, a coffee maker may appear in the morning and be replaced by your bedside lamp at night.

You can see the rest of your accessories by scrolling up, then tapping Cameras, Favorites, or a room.

Control smart home accessories and scenes

Control smart home accessories and scenes

To control an accessory, do any of the following:

  • Turn an accessory on or off: Tap the accessory—a light, for example—or, if you want to unlock a compatible lock, a home key.
  • Adjust an accessory’s settings: Tap for an accessory. Tap Done to return to the list of accessories. The available controls depend on the type of accessory. For example, with some lightbulbs, there are controls for both brightness and changing colors. Swipe left to see additional controls.
  • Control favorite accessories or accessories in a room: Tap Favorites or a room, then tap an accessory or tap to adjust the accessory’s settings.
  • View a camera’s video stream: Tap Cameras, then tap a camera.

To run a scene, open the Home app on your Apple Watch, then tap the scene.

View a different home

If you have more than one home set up, you can choose which one to view on your Apple Watch. Open the Home app on your Apple Watch, then do one of the following:

  • If the Home Screen is showing, tap a home.
  • If a specific home is showing, tap <, then tap a different home.

Send and receive Intercom messages from Apple Watch

Using the Home app on Apple Watch, you can send an Intercom message to all members of your home. You can also send Intercom messages to specific rooms or zones.

  1. Open the Home app on your Apple Watch.
  2. Swipe down, then tap the Intercom button.
  3. Say something like “Who ate the last piece of pizza?”
  4. Tap Done.

A recording of your voice is sent to all the HomePod speakers in your home, and to the iOS, iPadOS, and watchOS devices of all members of your home who can send and receive Intercom messages.

To send a message to a HomePod in a specific room or zone, raise your Apple Watch and say something like “Hey Siri, tell the office ‘The movie is starting’” or “Hey Siri, announce upstairs ‘I’m going to the store.’”

Remotely access your smart home accessories from Apple Watch

If you have an Apple TV (3rd generation or later), HomePod, or an iPad (iPadOS 13 or iOS 10 or later) that you leave at home, you can remotely access HomeKit-enabled accessories from your iPhone and your paired Apple Watch. The Apple TV, HomePod, or iPad acts as a home hub that lets you communicate with your accessories when you’re away from home.

Allow remote access

On your iPhone, go to Settings > [your name] > iCloud, then turn on Home. Make sure you’re signed in using the same Apple ID on all the devices.
