There is something better than downloading an application and enjoying its advantages on your iPhone and/or your iPad. There is something much better than sitting on the couch and relaxing surfing the web with your iPad. There is something infinitely better than unlocking your iPhone with facial recognition. That’s right, there is something much more magical in the operating system of your device. We speak, of course, of HomeKit.
HomeKit is the future of technology, obviously together with the other home automation platforms on the market. But HomeKit will allow your iPhone, your iPad and the rest of the products of the Apple ecosystem to evolve towards perfection.
With HomeKit accessories, we have the possibility to control a wide variety of elements of our home: lamps, LEDs, security cameras, plugs, switches and a host of gadgets.
But the best part is that we can simply do it by asking Siri. That’s right, without lifting the sofa’s ass. And this is not everything, no. We can even program automated actions, activate them according to location services or create environments for the home.
As we have been doing weekly in our accessories section for iPhone and iPad, today we will recommend a great selection of home automation accessories compatible with HomeKit. Do we start?

And speaking of colored lights, we could not forget to include this wonderful Koogeek LED strip.
