This is correct as it is not possible to integrate with the core WordPress search because it is for searching its posts and pages. This is why Connections (and other such plugins) include their own search fields.
If you want to have a search input on your home page… use the Connections Search Widget which comes as part of the Widget Pack in your purchase of the Pro Pack.
You can place this widget in your theme’s sidebar so it shows up everywhere.
Hope this helps!
