Use scenes to control multiple Home accessories on Mac
Scenes allow you to control multiple accessories at once. For example, you might define a “Reading” scene that adjusts the lights, closes the blinds, and adjusts the thermostat. Home has some typical scenes already defined for you, but you’ll need to edit them before they’ll work.
