I am also waiting HomeKit support but while checking the HELP section of Netatmo Thermostat from the interface, I saw that it already has some information about HomeKit enabled Netatmo Thermostat. What is that??
Can you also check and verify?

Received my thermostat last week. Had the white led, therefore compatible with HomeKit.
Followed the instructions and had it configured rather quick from an Ipad.
Had couple minor issues (First was that it took a lot of time to activate the keychain into iCloud. Second that after pairing Ipad with the thermostat, the thermostat displayed numbers switched - like it would be horizontal- and I had to remove the display and shake it a bit).

However the problem I have now is that I cannot pair my Iphone to the thermostat Homekit. I am using the same iCloud account, it asks me to reset the relay but this does not seem to work. Has anyone had the same issue?

The led is on the relay not on thermostat. Flashes blue or white. Mine flashes white.
I know is compatible Homekit because it works at my place.

Thanks but where is this info written on netatmo.com that the relay with white led means Homekit compatible.
I couldn't find such information on the official product specifications.

Thanks cmugur, I didn't know that information. That is good news. I will have to wait until they roll-out firmware update for the blue led relays.
