When you buy a new Smart Home device, make sure it’s compatible with Apple HomeKit.
Be careful, because Siri Shortcuts is not the same as Apple HomeKit.
Apple HomeKit works for the home.
If you’re out and about, it uses your Apple TV or iPad as a home base, so everything continues to work.
Siri Shortcuts on the other hand, are device-specific. So they only work when initiated on your iPhone for example.
After you’ve setup your device, you can configure Rooms, Scenes, and Automations.
