How to Control HomeKit accessories and scenes
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.
