Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From 9to5mac.com: “HomeKit Weekly: The best HomeKit gift ideas for a smart home Christmas”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The Christmas shopping season has officially begun, and since it’s time for HomeKit Weekly, I thought I’d take the time to provide an update on my top HomeKit devices that would be the perfect gift under the Christmas tree for a smart home enthusiast. I’ve been doing these articles for a few years now, and in that time I’ve seen so many great HomeKit products from a variety of manufacturers. With the rollout of Matter and Thread, it’s never been a better time to start building your perfect smart home on the foundation of HomeKit!

HomeKit Weekly is a series focused on smart home accessories, automation tips and tricks, and everything to do with Apple’s smart home framework.

If you only have HomeKit for one device category, it should be water leak detectors. As much as we wish this wasn’t the case, water leaks are a common cause of home damage. It’s a massive financial burden for homeowners who have to pay for repairs and damages from water damage. A good smart water leak detector can help prevent these issues by alerting you when a leak starts so that you can get it taken care of before it becomes too serious.

Outlet adaptors are a simple way to begin your HomeKit journey. Instead of rewiring your power outlets for ones that natively support HomeKit, outlet adaptors plug into traditional outlets and add HomeKit support. It’s the perfect way to add a lamp, coffee maker, or any other traditional item to HomeKit. You can use them to make any device compatible with your smart home hub. The best part is that they’re easy to install and work seamlessly with other HomeKit accessories to create automation and scenes.

HomeKit cameras that use HomeKit Secure Video are the only cameras I’d recommend using on the inside of your house since the footage is encrypted. They can work well in a baby’s nursery, facing an exterior door, on in a playroom.
