Introducing HomeKit Insider: a new AppleInsider podcast

article thumbnail

AppleInsider's new HomeKit Insider podcast series revolves around the ever-growing world of HomeKit and home automation — and it arrives with two new episodes.

The new show is hosted by AppleInsider's regular podcast host Stephen Robles, and me, Andrew O'Hara. Stephen has a growing HomeKit smart home while I've been an early HomeKit adopter with an extensive setup.

Each week, you can expect new episodes that dive into a variety of different topics. Alongside news and key HomeKit updates, you can expect HomeKit Insider to include :

  • News
  • New product announcements
  • Reviews
  • Giveaways
  • Current projects
  • Guests and interviews
  • Listener questions
  • And more

Episode One

In the inaugural episode of HomeKit Insider, we touch on HomeKit Secure Video cameras, specifically reviewing the new Logitech Circle View. Stephen then talks about issues he is having with his Aqara light switches. We pivot to the high-end Brilliant in-wall panels before rounding out the episode with some of the HomeKit questions we regularly get on AppleInsider.
