A collection of accessory services.


class HMServiceGroup : NSObject


A service group makes it easier to address the services as a single entity. For example, a user might choose to group a set of lights together as “Desk Lamps,” and have another set of lights grouped as “Ceiling Lights”. You create service groups using the addServiceGroup(withName:completionHandler:) method of HMHome. Service groups are visible to Siri and allow users to control a group of services through Siri.
