New iOS11.3 HomeKit software authentication and 1gen. Thermo

Post by Fraz76 » 26 Jan 2018, 23:42

From 11.3 iOS version Apple opens up HomeKit development with software authentication.
I’ll would like know if you’ll release a HomeKit firmware update for first generation thermostat, now that the hardware mfi chip is no more needed?

Thanks very much

And please do it :cry:

Haha what are you dreaming of? Its so funny to see that apple users are always the first that scream "i want this" " i want this" "i want this" If you have that much money to only own apple devices that little money for a new relais isnt worth for you to have more security?!? xDDD Think about the way you think! If they would do this through a fw update, why anybody should buy the 20€ higher priced 2. gen relais?!? The only left over reason would be to connect more than 5 vales. And they made this 2. gen extra for apple users, do you realy think they would provide something which would make them lose money?!? No logic behind that.

I really think we should now be able to use HomeKit with the first version. I want HomeKit and use it for other stuff. Looking at installing the rad TVR around my house but will look elsewhere if the update isn’t forthcoming
