Backup & Restore

With Controller for HomeKit you can create backups of your setup and restore them if needed.
Homes are as individual as their owners, who carefully craft their look and feel to match their imaginations. We want you to feel at home while looking at your HomeKit setup. Therefore Controller gives you several customization options.
HomeKit setups can become complicated. You get a new accessory, create a new scene here and add a few automations there. Suddenly you have 30+ automations, and every time you’re looking for one, it takes you some time to find it.

Smart Homes are great because they can make your daily life more comfortable. Well, except when they don’t. Sometimes automations don’t work as you expect, or something behaves weirdly. Logs help you deal with that.
Workflows are routines that can execute tasks in your home. They are a sequence of steps that will be executed consecutively. Each step is an action in your home, like reading or writing a value. In comparison to automations, you must start Workflows manually, but they give you much more flexibility.
