11:26:50 a.m. Derek: hi noelle
11:26:54 a.m. Noelle K: I see that you are just wondering what the latest firmware for your device is, is that correct?
11:27:20 a.m. Derek: correct
11:28:02 a.m. Noelle K: could you provide me with the model number for the timer in question?
11:28:16 a.m. Derek: wt24-0001
11:28:47 a.m. Noelle K: the model number is located somewhere on the timer and is a 5 digit number
11:29:27 a.m. Derek: does it not show it in the app?
11:30:09 a.m. Noelle K: It will show the MAC ID in the app
11:30:18 a.m. Noelle K: I can find your current versin through that as well by looking it up
11:30:19 a.m. Derek: okay, will that work?
11:30:49 a.m. Derek: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

11:35:23 a.m. Derek: okay, according to forum posts, there is a newer firmware version that just came out which finally adds Homekit support (which was promised 2 years ago)
11:35:41 a.m. Derek: is this true?
11:35:57 a.m. Noelle K: If that is, we do not have that information on our side yet to verify it.
11:36:13 a.m. Noelle K: The newest firmware version that I can confirm is only on our indoor/outdoor timers currently.
11:36:21 a.m. Noelle K: If that includes homekit or not I am not sure.
11:36:57 a.m. Derek: sounds like they give you guys as little information as they give us customersSpread the love!April 16, 2020 at 9:52 am #78483PaesanoParticipant
I’m at firmware version 0039 on my bhyve 12 station timer WT25G2-0001. Tried updating it through the app but it said “Update skipped: Firmware is already up to date.”Spread the love!April 16, 2020 at 11:32 am #78484robmehrerParticipant
Mine did the same… weirdSpread the love!April 16, 2020 at 9:40 pm #78485April 21, 2020 at 10:07 am #78492caalvarezParticipant
I have 0039 on the timer and hose controllers, and it won’t update.
Meanwhile, Orbit has spent their time building an AD SECTION in the damn app!! So they can sell you more stuff that fails to meet promises.Spread the love!April 24, 2020 at 6:16 am #78494tsperezParticipant
I think we have a troll amongst us…
Must be bored with SIP conditions.
Apart from no HomeKit my recently updated app (1.9.1) has got a lot of problems.
I’ll trying calling support again on the app. Last time I called support they had no knowledge on the HK feature.

HomeKit ? Anyone ?Spread the love!June 2, 2020 at 12:05 pm #78693PaesanoParticipant
The only reason why I still have this thing is because the time it took and how nicely I installed this unit on my wall. I did it that way because I thought it would be the last sprinkler timer I would have to install in this home and would include homekit. Where is homekit? Well at least the job of the wires being run through the wall at the location of the unit is done for when I upgrade to rachio.Spread the love!June 6, 2020 at 10:08 am #78701ReyGParticipant
Hi all, I know we’re all waiting for HomeKit on our timers. I made a video showing how to get it into HomeKit using Homebridge here: https://youtu.be/CJ6-W9D2PCM
This does require Homebridge to work but the process is actually really simple now. There is another video on my channel showing how to get up and running using a Raspberry Pi, and shows an example of our other dear friend Ring, being brought into HomeKit using this method.
This could be a fun weekend project? Anyway, hope some folks in here find it useful.Spread the love!June 6, 2020 at 1:26 pm #78702robmehrerParticipant
This will not work on anything with more than 4 zones. there is a bug in the guys software. If you have a 6 zone unit youre SOL. ive had this setup for months.Spread the love!
