@Emil ok. So I need a new hub :( And me who ordered 12 new buttons and no new hub on Friday...
(Been a long time customer, bought my first flics in jan 2016 and backed the hub in June 2017 so am a tid bit disappointed )
@sessan we have only certified the second hub for Homekit

Is the first hub unusable for HomeKit? Been a bit to early adopter of Flic so mine seems to be too old :/
@b-bech-l now :)

@Emil - An update?
"late 2020" is kind of here, you know. . .
and as you said earlier, "the ball is rolling according to plan", which must tell us that the HomeKit stuff is coming in a few days?
how accurate, and likely is that, @Emil ?

Good afternoon all,
@Emil i am also eagerly anticipating HK compatibility since it was promised at the launch of Flic 1 hub, which I bought, and promised for the Flic 2 hub, which I also bought... So although sadly I am used to non-delivery of promises by now, I remain an optimist.
Yet as 2020 is drawing to a close, now is definitely the promised "Late 2020" - unless you're planning a Christmas special.
So, Any progress on Homekit developments?
@Emil - Great news, at least ^^
And how "bulletproof" is that plan then?
how likely it is that the current plan doesn't goes as planned?

@b-bech-l Yeah we're also sorry that this has taken longer time than expected. With "according to the plan", I refer to the current plan from summer when we said "late 2020".
@Emil "according to plan", seems a bit over the top... the "plan" was for HomeKit support to be released almost a year back from now, when I bought my flics. . .
my hub + flics have been sitting in a drawer for almost a year now. . . . its Crazy... especially now that I can buy a very similar button from phillips in the exact same size as the flics, that includes HomeKit support... but now I have my investment in quite a few buttons I can't use for what my intentions was...
Its too late for me to return my equipment to flic, cause a have waited for so long on the famous "HomeKit support very soon" promise...
Guess that's a way to make money too...
Make a good selling point, and then stretch it out as much as possible, and keep promising pots of gold just around the corner every time questions come in...
Do that for long enough, and the costumer can't return the equipment, and you make bucks...
All jokes aside, i really feel handled like that ^^
And I really don't like it...
@hello_marley the ball is moving according to plan. Please stay tuned :)

when (or if) that happens, its been af year from my purchase, where I was promised "early 2020"....
Its really not cool folks...
at least you could offer some kind of compensation...
So far, I haven't shared my "adventure" anywhere else, but maybe its about time...

I am also one of those customers who bought the hub specifically for the HomeKit promise. Early 2020 has turned into Mid 2020 and that seems to be slipping away. Throw us a bone once in awhile with a status update.

@Emil - Not a very detailed answer tho. . . :/
you guys might not take this very serious, but I assure you that I/we do. . .
as I have mentioned earlier, the HomeKit thingie was the only reason I bought your product... and I bought it around Christmas....
thats a long time to wait, considering that u guys told everyone that HomeKit would come early 2020...
I trusted u guys. . . U got problems last time u spoke about HomeKit in regards to flic1, which never saw the day of light...
is THIS the exact same case, or what?
Give us something to hold on to man, and change our "hope" to "excitement" instead... Plz?
@bulk Yes we have made the submission.

@anton I appreciate the update. You mentioned you had hoped to submit by the week of May 1st. In the interest of transparency, did that happen? I recognize Apple's process can be a black box, but as your customers and users, we would hope yours wouldn't be. It's fine if it's delayed, we already know it is, just be transparent about where you are in the process right now. Thank you.

Hi. I bought the flic starter late 2019 kit on the promise of homekit implementation early 2020. If what you write here i true - that you have no idea how long this takes because it is new to you - then i feel you shouldnt make that promise in your marketing. Quite frankly it makes me mad.
