Poland-based company Tedee has announced a new firmware update that adds official HomeKit support and connectivity to existing tedee Smart Locks. This is in addition to the official release of the tedee lock being released at the start of September, with HomeKit compatibility out-of-the-box. The long-awaited HomeKit feature set is introduced in the latest firmware update and is backwards compatible with all existing tedee smart locks. The integration allows full HomeKit functionalities without the need for the tedee smart bridge.
“We made a promise to make tedee smart lock work with Apple HomeKit. Now we don’t just deliver, but make it easy and free – a regular firmware update,” said Grzegorz Chuchra, CEO, Tedee. “We pushed our R&D team to the limit to make this huge change as effortless as possible. It affects not only new users but all tedee locks already on the market – and thousands of doors.”
Luckily, even if you’re not a HomeKit user, the Apple HomeKit certification builds on an extensive range of tedee’s smart home integrations, including Google Home, Amazon Alexa, Homey, Fibaro, Consolomio, eedomus, and Grenton.
