The system's HomeKit integration supports the ability to arm or disarm the system, motion events triggered by abode motion sensors, and open/close events triggered by abode door/window sensors. Additionally, users can quickly and easily access live video from iota’s built-in streaming camera right through the Home app and ask Siri for the status of their system.

HomeKit support arrives via a firmware update that is being pushed out today. To install the update, make sure you are running the latest version of abode's iOS app, update your firmware once prompted, and navigate to settings within the app to generate a HomeKit code.

Abode says it's working with Apple to bring HomeKit to its entire ecosystem of products. Please download the iClarified app or follow iClarified on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, and RSS for updates.

You can purchase the iota All-in-One Home Security Kit for $229.
