HomeKit may be famous for its convenience features, such as voice control with Siri, but the best HomeKit security accessories go beyond controls by adding a little peace of mind. Smart HomeKit devices and automation can instantly notify you of changes when you are away from home, turn on a light when motion is detected, or sound an alarm at night. From HomeKit cameras to door locks, these are the best HomeKit security accessories that you can buy today.

Secure all the things

Home security is one of the most important factors of starting a smart home, with tons of accessories available that cover a wide variety of categories. Cameras, security systems, motion sensors, lighting, and more are all available with HomeKit support, giving you comprehensive security and access to convenient controls. The beauty of HomeKit also makes it so that all accessories can work together in automations and scenes, regardless of the manufacturer, bringing everything into the Home app, and through Siri.

The Logitech Circle View (opens in new tab) is one of our favorite HomeKit security accessories, as it not only works both indoors and out, but it provides crisp high definition 1080p video and support for HomeKit Secure Video. Logitech's camera is also incredibly simple to set up; all it takes is a scan of the HomeKit code and the Home app.

Want a HomeKit solution that resembles a more traditional home security system? Then Abode's iota Home Security Kit (opens in new tab) is the best option for you. This DIY security system gives you the ability to monitor everything within your home, either with a professional monitoring service or subscription fee using HomeKit notifications and automation. This kit includes everything you need to start your home security journey, including the iota hub with a camera, door and window sensor, and a keyfob.
