Questions on code level questions are likely off topic here so this tag shouldn't be used for developers unless the usual developer tags are also applied. Questions on setup, security, requirements, troubleshooting are all on topic here. As long as the other requirements for off site recommendations or shopping questions are honored, questions that meet quality standards for the site and relate to HomeKit can use this tag as well.
