PowerHouz, the Apple HomeKit Home Automation App just released it’s new version to the Apple Store and it is packed with new Automation functionalities.
With HomeKit the automation of tasks can be achieved by using Triggers and in this new version PowerHouz allows to use triggers based of other accessories characteristics, user’s location, time and even special events like Sunset/Sunrise/Twilight.
These new functionalities are taking PowerHouz to the next level where most Home Automation systems just cannot compete. Merging the iOS technology with Home Automation functionalities allows to finally get to a level of automation and simplicity that is relevant to the users.
For instance, You can now trigger an actions set based of an event (the front door unlocks) and a condition (it is past midnight). Or trigger an actions set using a geofencing trigger (open the garage door when I arrive home).
It also added a proprietary function to allow Sunset/Sunrise/Twilight triggers. These are set based of the Home address and the trigger time gets automatically updated every day to keep up with the sunrise and sunset time change.
