Along with recent purchase of my HomePod Mini I decided to investigate purchase of my first HomeKit device, a smart light, a LIFX Mini White 800 Lumens A60 E27.
In adding this first smart light to HomeKit I’ve taken advantage of automations to have HomeKit automatically turn on my bedside lamp when I return home and off when I leave, also on/off at sunrise/sunset where I am at home. Admittedly, sometimes it turning on at sunrise can be a tad annoying and I do call out to the HomePod “Siri, turn off the light”. I take laziness to new heights.
I quite enjoy the fact I am able to change the brightness level of the light from my iPhone Home app, or via the same on my Apple watch. Would be cool to approach home and have Siri automatically open the garage and close as I depart. I dare to dream?
