Apple’s Home app and HomeKit do not give you access to create cool lighting effects, such as strobes, changing colours, candle flickers, etc. out of the box. BUT, there is a way to achieve these cool lighting effects and access them right from the Home app. Today I’m going to show you a way to access these awesome lighting effects and make them a part of any of your HomeKit scenes!
Note: for this to work, you must have lights that come with light effects from the manufacturer. I will be using VOCOlinc lights to achieve this.
You will also need to use a 3rd party app during the setup process. I will demonstrate this by using the Eve app (free) and the Home+ app (paid). Once the setup is complete, you do not need to use either app. The light effects will be accessible right in the Apple Home app.
