Start your day with a Good Morning

With Caséta and Apple HomeKit, you can tell Siri to turn on the lights and raise the shades for you while you’re walking into the bathroom. Or you can even schedule those tasks to happen automatically.

Always get a warm welcome home

With Caséta lighting controls and an Apple HomeKit-enabled thermostat, you’ll never come home to an uncomfortable home. Be Welcomed Home through the use of geofencing or just tell Siri, and your home will be warm and well-lit.

Red carpet treatment

Caséta lighting controls, Serena shades, and Apple HomeKit-enabled devices can turn on the lights, open the shades, and put on the tunes for you when you come home or shutdown and lock-up the house when you leave.

Room By Room Control

Apple HomeKit manages all of your connected devices by room, so you can raise your Serena shades and dim the Caséta lights in the kitchen, lower the shades in the bathroom, and blast the music in the family room. Different rooms, different moods.

Closing Up Without Getting Up

At the end of a long day it’s nice to be able to just crawl into bed and turn off the lights, lower the shades and turn down the temperature, all just by using your voice and without your head leaving the pillow. Caséta lighting control and Smart Bridge, Serena shades and Siri make it happen.

Let the show go on

No need to get up to get the lights or start the home theater – just tell Siri on your iPhone, Apple Watch & TV, or HomePod that it’s “Movie Time” while you go and get the popcorn, then settle in to enjoy the show.

Set and Forget

Caséta lighting can work with an Apple TV and HomeKit-enabled devices to carry out certain actions automatically – for example when you’re away and there’s unexpected motion detected, all of your lights can go on while you’re alerted on your phone. Set it up once, and it’s on the job for you.
