BACKUP / RESTORE
Create a backup of your setup and restore it if needed. You invested hours to create a smart home with a bunch of devices and lots of fine tuned scenes and automations?
Secure the work done and be prepared, if HomeKit reports synchronization errors or your kid likes swipe to delete.
Use the backup mechanism to create seasonal setups. Why should you keep the scenes and automations for the garden irrigation system in the winter?
It’s always worth it to have an actual backup!
This new customizable area is shown after app start and allows you to easily create an individual HomeKit control center. The data shown in control views can be selected explicitly or is provided by powerful smart filters.
In just a few clicks you can create one that shows all power states from light services in the kitchen and living room, grouped by their value. A great control view to check and control your lights quickly.
A basic set of control views to start with is being created for you.
New unique feature to accomplish actions not possible before with HomeKit!
“Hey Siri, unlock the door for 30 seconds.”
“Hey Siri, status of my windows and doors.”
“Hey Siri, turn on the lights at 7 am.”
A workflow is defined by a series of steps and can be executed manually, with a Siri phrase or a Siri Shortcut.
You can execute scenes, read or write device values, pause execution, create time-based automations and define a output in the order you need it. The output is displayed or read out by Siri.
An important part of a smart home are automations.
Controller supports the entire HomeKit API and can interpret all common automations, even if they are created by other apps.
Automations are grouped by their name, very helpful to keep track of them.
Experts value the possibility to clone automations and scenes.
Clone a time-based weekly automation for the whole week and fine tune the time setting afterwards.
Your devices have more capabilities than most HomeKit apps show. Controller shows vendor specific characteristics and let you use them in scenes and automations.
Use current power consumption or running time of a Koogeek power outlet to start an automation.
Find out hidden capabilities of your devices and get more out of them.
Smart home setup can get crowded very quickly. With devices used in lot’s of scenes and automations it’s hard to overview all dependencies.
Controller gives you the option to think from bottom up. Showing all scenes and automations a device characteristic is used in right at the device detail screen. Additionally the scene detail screen is referencing the automations that scene is used in.
