In the past few weeks HomeKit has been tested by a select group of beta testers. Everything is working great and we submitted the app for public release last week but unfortunately it was rejected due to a technicality.
It came to our attention that the general license agreement had been outdated before the approval process was complete, the license agreement has now been updated and as soon as we receive an approval we will resubmit the app for public release.
In other words the HomeKit release is just around the corner. As soon as this happens we will push automatic firmware updates to your Hub LR’s and all you need to do is download the latest version of the app and you’ll be able to get started! We are however unsure when we can get the new approval, hopefully soon.
@c-bayardcarlson sorry I don't understand what you mean by "there isn't any actions to click even though I have them set up in IFTTT."
The Flic app doesn't list your recipes in IFTTT. The only thing you do in the Flic app is to activate IFTTT for that button, so that a trigger event will be sent to IFTTT. Then it's up to IFTTT's servers to do something with that event.
@Emil Ok, good to know you are still there. HomeKit will be nice, probably, but again I feel like having bought a hub was a bad idea. My wish was to be able to switch radio stations on the Sonos using Flic buttons, and this could be possible if I had a chance to teach the hub what to send to the Sonos system. Is there any chance for that? And no, it is not an option to use IFTTT… I don't want to rely on anything outside my local network for that.
Anyway, thanks for listening – I love the hardware you provide, and I am sure that you can make many people happier by improving the software.
The HTTP header does contain the following information: button-serial-number; button-battery-level; button-name. I agree it would be nice if it also included the button-action. I just put the info in the URL (eg flic/1/click) so I don't have to set a body. I then handle this in Node Red where I can specify the endpoint as flic/:from/:action and it pulls the parameters out for me automatically.
@mark-burton Yep we are working all the time to improve the software, including adding support for Sonos playlists. Lately adding HomeKit support has taken up quite much of our time. Right now things are going slower duing the summer holidays though, but you can be sure we will release a range of new features this autumn.
