When HomeKit Authority reviews products or services, we use a common scoring system to help keep things simple for everyone.
Our scoring system
We use a familiar percentage system for the overall score and break down the product into 5 key areas, in order to keep things recognisable and simple: the higher the percentage, the better.
How does the product look and feel? Is it well built or cheap to the touch?
Does it have the features and functionality that we expect/want?
How easy is it to use and get the most out of?
How well does the product work? Do all the features perform as they should?
Is the launch price good value when weighed against the other criteria? What our percentage score means
- 90 – 100 – Top buy – I would buy this (probably have)
- 80 – 90 – Recommended – I would recommend this to family and friends (or buy it for them)
- 65 – 79 – Acceptable – Not first choice, (I would use it if my 1st/2nd choice was not available)
- 65 or below – Not recommended – (It’s going in the bin when the review is done)
