After the iBeacon at WWDC 2013, another feature to cover the extended network to automated lifestyle, Apple introduced the HomeKit API – at this year’s developers’ conference. If iBeacon is the answer to leverage external network of the iPhone user, HomeKit is a similar (But Software) extravaganza to control Home Network. In any case, smart home application development is already attracting lot of interest.

As an iOS App developer, if we evaluate both these hardware & software features, iBeacon provides the ultimate micro-location based services in the external world of the user. And the HomeKit API based iOS App will allow the user to control the Home Automation devices such as security, lighting & entertainment gadgets (such as TV).

HomeKit API for Smart Home Automation App

Let us see how the HomeKit API helps for creating Smart Home Application Development.The HomeKit API will empower the Third-Party providers to create a Single Mobile App to control various Home Automation devices of the user. The features of extensibility will allow the App developers to integrate this App into Notification area with a widget. Moreover, the voice functionality of the Siri will allow the user to give voice commands to control these devices.

Using the Proximity sensor & Location services, soon the user reaches Home, the HomeKit API will automatically control the security device & open the doors, disable the security alarm and then switch the lights on (Provided the Electronic devices support Automated control). The biggest advantage to have all these vulnerable features in an iPhone is Apple’s Sandbox Security Model.

What can we Expect for Smart Home Automation Technology

We can expect a huge demand from the Electronics manufactures of the home automation devices to have native Apps and notification area widgets using HomeKit API. Simultaneously, third-party app developers would need a bulk of extensions to provide a single iOS App to support majority of the manufactures in the Home automation domain.

Jarvis- A Miniature of the Complete Package

The Jarvis App (Third-Party) has been a miniature of the complete package Apple’s own API – HomeKit can deliver. As we know Jarvis was an attempt to create a Personal Assistant to the iPhone user inspired by the JARVIS of Tony Stark in Marvel Picture’s Iron Man. However, with inter-App communications and other features of Extensibility – HomeKit API is going to be the ultimate tool to design a Smart Home Application.
