    I'm a real big newbie. Just getting into programming, and would like to do some work on connected things around my house. Why is it called HomeKit anyway?

    (Quote from: HomeKit FAQ: Everything you need to know | iMore ) It follows Apple's other "Kit" name-schemes, combining "Home" (for home automation) with "Kit" (short for software developers kit, or SDK). Thus, HomeKit.

    Maybe because HomeAutomation&Coolness was taken?

    I *assume* it is because it can control the connected accessories within your home.

    Kit is a reference to a collection of things... in this case - development tools to create apps to control things about the home... thus HomeKit.
