Home is where the Kit is

Do­mes­tic dig­i­tal au­toma­tion in 2019

Mac|Life - - FEATURE -

Com­pared to Ama­zon’s Alexa, with its add–on Skills for hun­dreds of prod­ucts, Ap­ple’s au­toma­tion plat­form has seen rel­a­tively sparse up­take. It’s not even as widely sup­ported as the newer Google Home or the in­de­pen­dent IFTTT. The ad­di­tion of a Home app to macOS Mo­jave should help, but Ap­ple may need a more ver­sa­tile kitchen or liv­ing room prod­uct, like Google’s Home Hub or Ama­zon Echo Show, to get more house­holds on board. This will also de­pend on de­vel­op­ments with Siri and Ap­ple TV (see page 37).
