To go along with my previous guide on preparing your smart home for guests, I wrote a basic how to post for iMore that covers using the Home Notes feature in the Home App. I often overlook this feature, opting to use a shared note in the notes App for most things, but can certainly see the value in just having a place for home related stuff, and it could be really useful for those that rent out their space.
Sharing access to your HomeKit accessories is quick and easy thanks to the Home app. However, your friends, family, renters, or airbnb guests may not quite know how you refer to your rooms or accessories within the app. Don’t leave everyone guessing, just use the notes section in the Home app! This handy feature allows you to use the Home app as a household whiteboard, allowing you to provide some tips, or the rules of the road.
