HomeKit Update

The abode user community has been clear about their desire to add HomeKit functionality to the abode platform; and we are committed to making this happen. Over the past year and at this moment, abode has been and continues to work directly with the Apple HomeKit team on adding HomeKit compatibility across our entire suite of devices — including existing devices — and will have an announcement on specifics and timeline in the near future.

From CEO Christopher Carney:

“We are committed to continuing to work with Apple to deliver HomeKit functionality to our users today and in the future. Though we understand the frustration users feel with the pace of this integration, we are dedicated to providing the best possible smart home security system possible. We have been working tirelessly and directly with the Apple HomeKit team to achieve independent certification of our devices and continue to make progress. We realize that we have had delays this year; we want to make sure everyone knows that the entire abode team is working tirelessly and doing everything within our power to deliver on our promise and to deliver the most comprehensive, user-friendly, simple and powerful home security solution on the market.”

Thank you for your continued interest in abode and please continue to share your feedback with us so that we may roll out additional features like the advanced automation engine and new solutions like iota that improve your experience with abode.
