Home Kit creates a unified interface to control different smart appliances.
Home Kit provides seamless integration between accessories that support Apple’s Home Automation Protocol and iOS devices
Home Kit views a home as a collection of home automation accessories.
Homes (HMHome) are the top level container, and represent a structure that a user would generally consider to be a single home.
Rooms (HMRoom) are optional parts of homes, and represent individual rooms in the home.
Accessories (HMAccessory) are installed into homes and assigned to rooms. These are the actual physical home automation devices, such as a garage door opener.
Services (HMService) are the actual services provided by an accessory. Accessories have both user-controllable services, like a light, and services that are for their own use, like a firmware update service. Home Kit is most concerned with user-controllable services.
A single accessory may have more than one user-controllable service. For example, most garage door openers have a service for opening and closing the door, and another service for the light on the garage door opener.
Zones (HMZone) are optional groupings of rooms in a home. “Upstairs” and “downstairs” would be represented by zones. Zones are completely optional—rooms don’t need to be in a zone. By adding rooms to a zone, the user is able to give commands to Siri such as, “Siri, turn on all of the lights downstairs.”

Observations and Summary
Apple seems to be opening up their OS, but in a way that makes Apple and it’s products and service still the center of your digital life
But they are doing it in a way that doesn’t require them to build everything.
They are cleverly letting 3rd parties play in their sandbox
And they can because the built the sandbox everyone wants to play in.
