Status of Apple HomeKit Support



  • Re: Status of Apple HomeKit support?

    Now that the Flic 2 and Updated Hubs are available, is there an update for when we can expect HomeKit support?

    The Flic 2 product webpage currently lists HomeKit under the "Flic Hub LR" section—does this then mean that the update is imminent (or is it just misleading?)

    Thanks!

  • @Emil What’s the deal with your website then?

    Apple HomeKit
    Flic can now keep multiple connections to different apps simultaniousley which will enable users to combine functions from multiple apps with a single button.



  • I echo @b-bech-l comment. I specifically supported the Flic campaign because of the promised Homekit support. Bad enough that the implementation wasn't included on release. I cannot find a single function in Flic's current state that is helpful for me. So far, my $160 investment is useless and sitting in a box. Here's to the hope that the current implementation is certified ASAP.

    I BADLY need an update on this matter also. . .
    i have bought quite a few buttons, with the intend of using them together with HomeKit exclusively...

    The wait is killing me xD

    Every time I asked the flic team directly, I get the same "oh, it will be soon" or "HomeKit will be available in early 2020" answer... that's not very specific...

    Can it be THAT hard to be a little more transparent, and just tell EXACTLY where we stand?

    Something like "Hey Brian, im sorry for the wait on HomeKit, but right now we are waiting for the last bits to fit together, and a rough estimate will be 7-14 days if everything goes as planned" would be much appreciated.

    I NEED answers, dammit ! xD
    Im ultra stoked !

    @b-bech-l I honestly have no idea at all how long their certification process takes. I don't know if it takes one month or half a year. But hopefully near the former.



  • @Emil
    I know you are hesitant about being too exact on a date, because you are afraid of promising too much and look bad afterwards...
    I totally get, and respect that... but with that said, you must have an idea of how long the estimate is?
    Are we talking in about 1-2 weeks, or 1-2 months. . . Or years, maybe? I can only stick to the first promise we got, and that was "HomeKit to be launched in the 1. quarter of 2020", which is in less then a month...

    is that estimate far off?


  • FlicTeam

    We have a working implementation that we are currently working with Apple to get it certified. I don't know how long this process will take, but the process is quite thorough.

  • I no longer trust anyone who promises HomeKit support "soon", so I wrote a Homebridge plugin for the Flic buttons instead: https://omg.dje.li/2020/02/adding-flic-buttons-to-homekit-using-homebridge/
