iDevices Remote Access (iOS and Android)
Stay connected to your home from wherever you are. iDevices HomeKit™ products can be securely accessed and controlled from anywhere using the iDevices Connected app. Your iOS device is automatically set up to use the iDevices Remote Access Server to control your iDevices HomeKit products away from home.
Apple TV® Remote Access (iOS only)
For HomeKit™ features such as Siri® voice control, an Apple TV® (3rd generation or later) is required for use outside of your home. Ensure Apple TV® is signed in with the same iCloud® account on your iOS device, and that Keychain® is turned on. For users running an iOS device with iOS 9, please head over to your Settings > HomeKit™ > Select your Home > Turn On “Allow Remote Access”
For users running an iOS device with iOS 10, that would like to remotely control accessories with the Apple Home app, an Apple TV (4th generation) with tvOS 10 or iPad with iOS 10 setup as a home hub is required by Apple. The device you set up as a home hub must remain in your home, connected to your home Wi-Fi network, and powered on.
