A principle part of the American dream is to own a home. The definition of an American home is constantly changing, and smart home technology gives more functionality and control over a person’s space. With devices updating constantly and with newer devices coming out every day, having an organized, well-connected smart home can define a person’s home. Apple’s HomeKit ecosystem gives users a single application interface to operate smart home technology for an entire, organized home opposed to other similar ecosystems without necessary functions run by other companies like Google or Amazon. Starting or remodeling a smart home can be easy enough for a homeowner to complete on their own but there are many obstacles in completing a smart home. Preparing this application and cost deliverable will make it easier for an American homeowner to update their own home with Apple’s HomeKit. Running into unforeseen costs or time delays due to bridges or hubs necessary connection or problems with installation can postpone a schedule or dismantle a project. This paper provides pricing, connection requirements, installation notes, and additional notes to help homeowners plan and develop an Apple Homekit based smart home and avoid common smart home problems, saving time and money.
