Additional devices such as Security, Locks, Cameras, Doorbells, and Garage Door Openers round out the packages. HomeKit hardware designed to optimize a system are also listed, such as Bridges and Range Extenders.
Each product listing is linked to a website or explains the status of an upcoming product in the works.

Users of the Apple Home app or any number of third-party apps can easily control various HomeKit hardware, and even use Siri to initiate actions and change parameters like temperature at the location.As Apple puts it, "The list keeps getting smarter".
