How to Add Apple TV to HomeKit

If you’re looking for the full Apple experience on the big screen, then Apple TV is the perfect solution. Not only does it give you access to all your favorite content, but it can also work seamlessly with your other smart home devices through HomeKit. However, the process of adding Apple TV to HomeKit has changed over time, which is why we’re here to help.

The good news is that adding your Apple TV to HomeKit is now easier than ever before. When setting up your Apple TV for the first time, follow the on-screen instructions until you get to “Automatically Set Up Your Apple TV.” From there, select “Set Up With iPhone.” Make sure your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch is on the Wi-Fi network you want your Apple TV to use, and ensure that Bluetooth is turned on.

Bring your device close to your Apple TV, and you’ll see a message pop up on your device. Select “Set Up,” then enter the authentication code when it appears on the TV. This will automatically add the Apple TV to your HomeKit home, and you can then select which room it belongs in.

If you’re adding an existing Apple TV, go to “Users and Accounts.” If you’re not signed in, select “Add Default User.” The process from here is similar to setting up a new Apple TV. If at any point the message isn’t popping up on your iPhone or iPad, try locking and unlocking it.

Next, go to “Airplay and HomeKit,” then “Finish Home Set Up,” and again, bring your device close to the Apple TV. Select “Connect.” When the setup is complete, select which room your Apple TV is in from the list or create a new room.

Once you’ve successfully added your Apple TV to HomeKit, it can work with your other Airplay speakers for whole-home audio and can also be controlled by Siri. The possibilities are endless, and you’ll be able to get the most out of your HomeKit home.

In conclusion, adding an Apple TV to HomeKit is a quick and easy process that can be done in a matter of minutes. If you’re not sure how to get started, follow the steps outlined above, and you’ll be on your way to enjoying a fully integrated smart home experience.
