HomeKit is designed to turn users’ iPhones and other possible devices into a WiFi remote control platform for smart devices like door locks, garage doors, lights and other amenities, according to Business Insider. Apple unveiled HomeKit at its developer conference earlier this year, and the tech has reportedly already been integrated with Siri to give users vocal command over their households.

Apple is expected to begin sending invitations to the September event very soon.
