Configure a router in Home on iPhone
In iOS 13.2, you can use the Home app to make your smart home more secure by allowing a compatible router to control which services your HomeKit accessories can communicate with in your home Wi-Fi network and on the Internet. HomeKit-enabled routers require that you have a HomePod, AppleTV, or iPad set up as a home hub. See the Home accessories website for a list of compatible routers.
To configure the router’s settings, follow these steps:
Set up the router with the manufacturer’s app on an iOS device.
Open the Home app , tap the Home tab, then tap .
Tap Wi-Fi Network & Routers.
Tap an accessory, then choose one of these settings:
No Restriction: The router allows the accessory to connect to any Internet service or local device.
This provides the lowest level of security.
Automatic: The router allows the accessory to connect to an automatically updated list of manufacturer approved Internet services and local devices.
Restrict to Home: The router only allows the accessory to connect to your home hub.
This option may prevent firmware updates or other services.
