Set your favorite scenes and accessories in the iOS Home app.

Let's face the facts: Some HomeKit-enabled accessories are more important than others. You'll need to fiddle with some accessories every day, multiple times a day, while others needn't be adjusted very often — if at all.

Apple's Home app lets you choose your favorite accessories and scenes so you can have your most-used settings at the ready. They'll also appear in Control Center, making it that much easier to adjust your home automation accessories no matter your current task.
