If you have multiple smart home devices that can be controlled via Apple’s HomeKit, the ability to create scenes adds a new level of usefulness. Instead of just controlling one device individually, scenes can tie in multiple items.
And with the new app aptly named HomeRun, you can quickly control scenes from an Apple Watch.
On an iPhone, users can customize a grid of specific actions to make the useable at a glance. You can select both a glyph and color for a scene. Up to 12 different scenes can appear on a single screen of the watch. If you set up more, just scroll.
Instead of even needing to open up the watch app, you can also link a complication to a specific scene.
While you can accomplish many of the same tasks with Siri or the watch’s Home app, HomeRun make it easy to interact with scenes much faster.
HomeRun for HomeKit is designed for the iPhone and can be downloaded now on the App Store for $2.99
