A Scene is a group of multiple products, performing specific actions (turning on, turning off, etc.). They can be a combination of iDevices products and other HomeKit™ compatible devices. Scenes are not currently available on Android™.
You can ask Siri® to activate the Scene, or you can assign a Schedule to the Scene if you have an Apple Home Hub. The Scene will be activated when the phone is on the same Wi-Fi® network as the product, or if you have a Home Hub setup, the Scene can be activated remotely. An Apple Home Hub can be an Apple TV 4K, Apple TV 4th Generation or iPad® running iOS 10 and later. For more information on using a Home Hub, Click Here
