Consumers seeking to streamline their devices with a tech-connected home central hub can now turn to their iPad as a main control system, rather than purchasing an external device. The tablet is now formatted to act as main command system to oversea the programming of other gadgets in the home using a feature called 'HomeKit.'

The 'HomeKit' is the platform home owners can connect their devices and services to for streamlined tech use throughout a single space. The service works in conjunction with Apple TV allowing consumers to set up a geofence that relays commands to other devices such as smartphones, laptops, lights and more. 'HomeKit' is able to use the geofence and the threshold place around the space to detect when a consumer enters, and trigger access to the command system.
