HomeKit 2020 Update!

It’s been a while since I have mapped out our HomeKit setup. Heck, it’s not even the same house anymore!

Some of the biggest changes

  1. All IKEA TRÅDFRI lights are gone. I found them to be too unreliable.
  2. Rather than swapping bulbs to smart bulbs, we are doing smart switches instead this time. More reliable and gives you a real” switch on the wall for anyone to use without special (annoying) instructions.

Shades / Blinds

Homebridge

We don’t actually have a need for Homebridge with our new setup yet. Everything has native HomeKit so far. 🤞
