    I'm curious how you're using homekit. I'm very intrigued by the prospect, but in a practical sense I'm not sure it's there yet. But I'm very interested to hear how people are using it, potentially in very creative ways :)

    This is my HomeKit setup. My Lutron Caseta setup has over 25 different in-wall switches, dimmers, and plug-in models. In total I have about 40 different devices, switches, and modules in my house that can be controlled with Siri. It is amazing! Works great.... most of the time. I'm writing a huge blog post right now that I'll publish in about 1-2 weeks about HomeKit directly comparing it to other options on the market today.

    Meanwhile if you want to read more about my thoughts on why I love HomeKit, here are some posts:
