Why home kit?
A home security camera operating with HomeKit may cost more than competitors. Why do you pay a premium for home kit premium? For me, the advantage is that all smart home devices can be accessed with e app, regardless of manufacturer.
For HomeKit cameras, you can see all the video feeds in the same way in the home applicati using the same user interface, even if all the cameras are different models of different brands. Since the home kit camera is assigned to the room, lights, locks and other accessories are displayed in the designated room of the home applicati.
When you add a HomeKit camera to your favorites, a video feed is displayed the overview screen of the home applicati and you can quickly access video feeds from different rooms e screen. Your favorite camera has its own secti the overview screen under the other favorite accessories.
You can not access the camera from the ctrol center like any other favorite accessory, but you can see your favorite camera from Apple Watch. For many other home security cameras, there is no Apple Watch applicati to support the display of live feeds and the round-trip transmissi of audio, so this is a great benefit for HomeKit cameras.
