How To Add a ClareHome Quick Access Widget on Apple iOS Devices


Users can add Quick Access Shortcut Widgets to the home screen of their Apple iOS Device. These widgets allow users to quickly access device controls in their ClareHome App without having to manually navigate the app to get to the desired control.


This feature requires iOS 15 or later.


Instructions may change slightly once newer iOS versions are released and between smartphones and tablets. These instructions should be generic enough between most Apple iOS devices.
