App Description

HomeBot for Shortcuts allows you to automate your HomeKit setup in a powerful new way. HomeBot exposes the following Shortcuts actions:

• Get Home Items: List all HomeKit items and allows you to filter them with parameters: by item type (scenes, devices, device groups and homes), item name, item identifier, room name, room identifier, home name, home identifier, if the item is in the primary home, if the item is active, service type (like lightbulb, outlet or thermostat). The output items also include all this information so you can use it in other Shortcuts actions.
• Run Home Actions: This powerful action allows you to apply three types of HomeKit actions in bulk to the input items: “Trigger Scene” (supports scenes as input), “Switch Device Status” (supports devices or device groups) and “Change Primary Home” (supports homes). The “Switch Device Status” action also supports 3 activation modes: toggle, activate or deactivate.

With these actions you can automate HomeKit in a lot of new ways and HomeBot includes some example shortcuts to show its power in action:
• Trigger Scenes: Lists all scenes available in you primary home and allows you to chose the ones to trigger in bulk.
• Switch Lightbulbs in Room: Allows you to toggle, activate or deactivate all lightbulbs in a room.
• Get Home Status: Dumps all home items status in your primary home to a JSON file.
• Change Primary Home: Lists all available homes and allows you to choose the one to set as primary home.

Notes:
• HomeBot can detect and control the status of all HomeKit devices that can be activated and deactivated: outlets, lightbulbs, switches, thermostats, fans, air purifiers, heaters, dehumidifiers, windows, window coverings, faucets, valves, irrigation systems, doors, garage door openers and locks!
• Changing you primary home in HomeBot will propagate the change to all your devices and Siri will also automatically use your selected primary home by default.

Privacy by Design: HomeBot works completely on-device and does not store or send any information outside of the protected app sandbox.
