Upstate Apple Users Group

4/23/19 Meeting

Home Automation

Tuesday, April 23 • Q&A Session: 6-7pm • Presentation and Discussion: 7-8:15pm


Please note: If you haven't paid your annual dues, they are...well...DUE for our 2019-2020 season.

Do you use your Mac, iPhone, or iPad to control your thermostat, or activate a security system, or ask your refrigerator what groceries you need to buy? Apple's HomeKit is software that enables you to control various aspects of your home remotely. The Home app on iOS and the homePod are examples of how Apple is allowing you to interact with the Internet of Things (IOT).

Ron Kopelman will start the discussion by telling how he talks to his thermostat, then he'll invite others to offer what they are doing or are interested in doing with home automation.

Hope to see you all there!

Upcoming Meetings

"People helping people."

Are you a Apple product user in the greater Utica/Rome area of central NY? Then welcome to the online home of the UAUG, a group of people just like you, who want to get the most out of using their computers and devices made by Apple. Eleven months out of the year, we meet to discuss and learn about our Apple products and the software and peripherals that can be used with them.

When we aren’t meeting, we stay in touch through UAUGtalk, our forum website, where members (and only members--no outsiders) ask questions, get answers, and find exclusive deals for user group members. Click here to find out more, including meeting places and times and how to join UAUG.

If you own a computer connected to the Internet, the UAUG is now available to you on a round-the-clock basis. Our forum website is open to all members (only UAUG members can register to access member-only content and post to the forums).
