Is there a Home + Security app for my Apple Watch? The Home + Security app for my Apple Watch has disappeared. How can I get it back?

Version 5.0.0 and later of the Home + Security app for iOS does not offer an Apple Watch app. Instead, the Apple Watch will receive all notifications from your iPhone. So, you will get Home + Security notifications. With the recent updates by Apple for iOS and WatchOS, users can enjoy more features.

Via the Home app on the Watch, you can:

  • View live video from a camera or doorbell
  • Receive a notification from the Home app when a movement or person is detected

To ensure the Home app works properly, the product must be correctly configured with HomeKit.

Via the Shortcuts app, you can set up a button allowing you to perform an action with your Home + Security products. This button can then be set up as a Complication on the Apple Watch. The following actions are possible:

  • Turn on the Outdoor Camera's light
  • Turn off the Outdoor Camera's light
  • Restart the Camera
  • Empty a Netatmo home

For more information, please check out Apple's support page for the Home app and Shortcuts.
