Enabling notifications for your HomeKit accessories

FIBARO HomeKit-enabled accessories can be configured to send push notifications to alert you about specific events in your home. For example, our FIBARO HomeKit-enabled Door/Window Sensor can inform you when the door is open or closed.


  • Apple iPhone or iPad with iOS 10 or later,
  • FIBARO HomeKit-enabled accessories,
  • Apple home hub (Apple TV, iPad or HomePod) – required to receive notifications while away from home.


Step-by-step instruction

  1. Open the Home app. 3D Touch or hold longer selected accessory to open the settings screen (Door/Window Sensor in our example).
  2. Tap Details.
  3. Scroll down and tap Status and Notifications.
  4. Toggle on Allow Notifications.
  5. Separate the sensor and the magnet to see if the current status changes to Open. The notification will be displayed.
