Do you work for Mikrotik?
"I use a Mikrotik router (one of the most advanced routers on the market)."
"Mikrotik is a company that sells top of the range routers and wifi access points."
"Mikrotik for instance, which is one of the best router/Wifi Access points manufacturers."
Dude I've never heard of this company before. Make a dedicated thread about your superior router brand and stop spamming the homekit section.
All we care about here is when its coming out.

I've heard of them and they're supposedly good routers. I'm sure Netatmo can buy one and discover why it doesn't work correctly with the Welcome/Presence.

I fully agree, and I have advised them to do so, i even proposed them to give a remote access to my router .... they said they would escalate the issue..... never heard from them.

Slowly it gets really ridiculous. I think it's a big customer-fake. It is not a fair deal with its customers to postpone purchase-critical updates again and again without stating reasons.
If you were at least transparent to the customer and provided the reasons for the shifts.
Very sad...

Even if you have been waiting for a year, don't expect too much as Homekit support for Presence is NOT stable, so i doubt it will be for Welcome

Since Netatmo is not willing to provide the mission critical geo-fence feature I implemented it myself. Well, this is for a Presence camera actually, the welcome has some kind of half-geo-fence. Presence has nothing at all.

My setup:

- Raspberry with a simple noobs installation (see Raspberry homepage)
- Installed homebridge (see GitHub)
- Installed Apache webserver and php module
- Copied the NetatmoCameraAPI or splNetatmoAPI depending on your needs (see GitHub)
- Created little page that uses the API to do whatever I want it do to. Depending on the script you need a Netatmo API key, but that is really simple to get)
- Installed homebridge-http-webhooks and configured the switches I want to trigger the little page I created previously
- In the homekit app I then created some rules to trigger the switches when the first person arrives and the other switch when the last person leaves

It works absolutely flawless. It was a bit a pain to implement, but now I'm totally happy. Nevertheless it is a shame that Netatmo has such poor WebKit support and denies the necessity of a geo fence for Presence. I don't understand it, it is a basic feature for home-automated security. If I have to enable/disable the stuff manually - well does not sound very 2018/automatic to me.

With the netatmo app update from yesterday they even managed to move the handy notifications settings to some hidden place - aaarghhh...
