Join Tammy Coron for an in-depth discussion in this video Observing HomeKit database changes, part of iOS HomeKit Quick Start.
- [Voiceover] Let's take an in-depth look…at the HomeKit Delegation pattern…to get a better understanding of how it all works.…Most actions, such as adding and removing homes,…include a method with a completion handler.…Whenever a device initiates a request…using one of those methods, only the completion handler…is executed, meaning it does not receive…the Delegate message.…Let's look at this another way.…When using the addRoom method to add a room to a zone,…notice it has a completion handler.…
There's also a corresponding didAddRoom…toZone Delegate method.…If Device A adds a room to a zone,…the corresponding Delegate message…will not be sent to Device A.…Instead, it will be sent to Device B.…That's why when working with HomeKit,…it's important to make sure you update your UI…in both the completion handler and the Delegate methods.…
