In our third entry to our HomeKit automation series, we explore a simple way to create a door lock status light. While the status light could represent many things, I use it as a way to be sure all my doors are closed and locked.
In this tutorial, we’ll going to lay out how you can use your HomePod as a speakerphone for phone calls handed off from your iPhone, manage multiple calls on your wireless speaker, switch between them easily and more.
Anyone within earshot of your HomePod can invoke Siri and ask her to read your texts or send a message, set a reminder or make a note. Fortunately, you can stop your guests or mischievous family members from using these personal requests on your HomePod.
You might need your HomePod’s serial number when you register the product or seek help from Apple Support. You can also easily see the version of the software HomePod is currently running, which might be useful before deciding whether to install a new firmware for the smart speaker.
