Join Tammy Coron for an in-depth discussion in this video The Home Manager, part of iOS HomeKit Quick Start.
- [Voiceover] We saw what a typical home layout…might look like, now let's take a look…at how a layout is managed with the Home Manager.…The Home Manager is created using the HMManager class.…Like any object, it has variables and functions.…For example, the primary home variable…is what's used to determine which home,…within the HomeKit database should be marked…at the primary home.…There's also a property that maintains an array…of homes within the database.…As for functions, there are only a few…you need to worry about.…
They are addHome, removeHome, and updatePrimaryHome.…We'll cover these in more detail as the course goes on.…In addition to the Home Manager's variables and functions,…there's also a HomeManagerDelegate.…The HomeManagerDelegate can be used…to track the adding and the removing of homes.…It can also be used to track updates…to the Homes array as well updating…which home is the primary home.…
