Apple's WWDC 2018 keynote was somewhat light on major smart home announcements, but Siri Shortcuts is a large leap forward in simplifying your life. Siri Shortcuts can contain a set of actions across many different files, including smart home control from HomeKit. It's coming in iOS 12 this fall, along with improvements to watchOS, tvOS, and the Home file landing on macOS Mojave.

I'm the Leprchaun!
Nice video. I’m just gettin into HomeKit and your videos have been nice. Hold it up
Can I connect few Equipment to a hub and control them without having to use my personal WiFi. So Only the integration are between iphone Titles, The Hub and the accessories I pick are connected between them. Thank you in advance.
you can automate the appleTV to turn on when you obtain home if you set up homebridge npm. i installed it on my Mac and also use it to unblock and lock my iMac with home file. which in turn lets me automate my office light to turn on and off when the Mac unlocks and someone is home. many plugins that create things a lot of things HomeKit compatible. like my webosTV.
What Home Kit needs more of is non-voice needed automations. There are some there but there should be extra informations in this zone.
Check out my video, it shows a major trouble I am having with HomeKit! https://youtu.be/rUkPR0ojp14
We need a TV file for mac
I was so under impressed by WWDC this year. Not talking about the whole keynote, but as far as smart home side...very terrible. The concept of Siri doing shortcuts... they just ripped off IFTTT, they fully blew by the fact of how behind Siri is compared to Alexa or Google Assistant. I was hoping to see them give her a brain, but not this year. It was nice to see HomeKit being integrated into macOS but that was it. Just sad to see a WWDC under perform on what it should have been.
We need Hompod mini's! To have Siri in most rooms.
