How to Con­trol HomeKit ac­ces­sories and scenes

Mac Format - - APPLE SKILLS -

1 Master of your home

If you’ve con­fig­ured ac­ces­sories in the Home app, such as lights, door locks or air qual­ity sen­sors, Con­trol Cen­tre’s third card shows up to nine ac­ces­sories (12 on iPad) and scenes marked as favourites, for at-a-glance info about their sta­tus.

2 Ac­ces­sory in­for­ma­tion

Tap an ac­ces­sory (that isn’t just a sen­sor) or a scene to tog­gle its sta­tus – to turn a light on or off, for ex­am­ple. If an ac­ces­sory al­lows finer ad­just­ment, such as a light’s bright­ness, ap­ply 3D Touch/ hold a fin­ger on it to show that con­trol.

3 Choose your favourites

Tap the house icon (top left) to open the Home app if you need to use its ex­tra con­trols or want to change or re­ar­range the favourite ac­ces­sories that are shown in Con­trol Cen­tre: tap Edit, then drag the ac­ces­sories into your de­sired po­si­tions.
