Set up remote access to use with Home on Mac
If you have an Apple TV (4th generation or later) or HomePod, or if you set up an iPad (with iOS 10.3 or later) that you leave at home, you can use remote access. The Apple TV, HomePod, or iPad acts as a home hub, which allows remote access to your accessories.
For information about setting up remote access and allowing remote access for other users, see the Apple Support articles Set up your HomePod, Apple TV, or iPad as a home hub and Share control of your home.
Note: You can’t set up remote access from the Home app on your Mac.
