We highlight the updated Home+ app, go hands on with the Aqara T1 Pro, and run through several mini reviews on this week's Homekit Insider Podcast.
The wonderful Home+ app has been updated this week to version 6 which brings with it several enhancements. It now has multiple widgets for your Home Screen and Lock Screen that allow you to trigger individual accessories or scenes. It also can now support historic data from Eve accessories.
Hue's app was updated too that brought the Sync Box control into the main Hue app versus a standalone controller. Stephen had some issues during the migration, however.
Eufy was caught in a debacle where it was revealed its cameras were sending bits of information to its servers without user permission. This saga is still ongoing, and we'll be talking about it more in the future.
Finally, for reviews, Stephen goes hands-on with the new Aqara T1 Pro controller. This small die-shaped remote allows you to set up to 6 six scenes by changing its orientation.
Andrew also does a few mini reviews of the Moft Snap battery and the Balolo wood tripod stand for HomePod mini.
