HomeKit support redux


Recommended Posts

Nothing has changed


As Next INpact noticed, if you want to release a HomeKit-compatible accessory, you still have to work with Apple to get a certification. And of course, manufacturers that work with Apple directly could potentially access unreleased features before they’re unveiled at WWDC."

@giesen and @ravedog,
@InsteonNut and I agreed to see what it would take to make HK available on Polisy a while back. There are still very many hurdles (on Apple side) that we have to overcome. I cannot guarantee anything except that we'll try.
With kind regards,
My point was that nothing has really changed with regards to Apple licensing for HomeKit for commercial offerings. They have open-sourced the SDK for hobbyists, but commercial products still have to go through the Apple certification process, which I think we previously agreed was cost-prohibitive for a lower-volume product like the ISY.
