Apple has announced its newest and easiest way to control any and all HomeKit accessories that you may have in your house: Home. With Home, you'll be able to control all of your accessories, including Air Conditioners, cameras, door locks and other new categories. 3D Touch will be able to give you deeper controls at just a press, and notifications from these will also have 3D Touch functionality as well.

Home will be built into Control Center, and to access it all you have to do is swipe from the right twice to see the controls, music and more. Your Apple TV will become a HomeKit hub, and there is support right from your Apple Watch. Geofences can be set up to activate different things and more.
