I use HomeKit to simplify home management for the elderly. One of the things I want to address is the failure of a sump-pump, or flooding condition.

Is there a way I can cause a HomeKit sensor to cause this notification?

  • What you might want to consider is using a device that supports both HomeKit and some other standard, like IFTTT. IFTTT is great for this kind of thing. – Calion Jan 7 at 17:58

It depends on the manufacturer of the sensor you're using. If it supports HomeKit notifications, you can set them by pressing on the device's icon in the Home app.

Apple says if you set up HomeKit on an Apple TV or an iPad that always at home, it acts as a intermediate and lets you keep updated from your iPhone even when you are not at home. Notifications include. Theoretically, it also covers flood sensing.

  • This doesn't seem to answer the question. This explains how to ensure that the notification is received remotely, not that it's sent in the first place. – Calion Oct 12 '18 at 4:33
