Find the right tone for your lights automatically with Follow the Sun for HomeKit

Follow the Sun for HomeKit

Have you ever turned on the bedroom lights, only to find them set to 2% brightness from the night before? Or turned on the bathroom lights in the middle of the night, only to be blinded by their 100% brightness? Follow the Sun can help—it’s about getting just the right at just the right time. Set schedules for your smart lights, so they’re nice and bright during the day, and dim and warm at night, without all the fiddling. Works with all HomeKit bulbs and switches that include a dimmer—color warmth support included for any bulbs that include either full color or color temperature.

Use color-coded communication in your smart home with Signals for HomeKit

Signals for HomeKit

Signals for HomeKit is about communicating throughout the home, without all the shouting. Ever have trouble getting the kids (or your spouse's?) attention, because they’re engrossed in a book, or playing a video game with headphones on? No problem—just use Signals for HomeKit to quickly flash their lights, and then set them to a specific color to send them a message. “Dinner Time”? Set the lights to green. “Time to go”? Set them to blue. “Get down here now!”? Turn them red!

Automate your TV remote control with TV Remote

TV Remote

TV Remote pairs with your smart TV to control them with the app itself. Shortcuts, Widgets and even Live Activities so can be automated somewhat! TV Remote supports TVs from LG, Samsung, Sony, Roku and many more! It’s built in SwiftUI and supports customizable layouts, themes, and the ability to launch apps too.
