Cat unless it has the abcd timer button don’t get it. My Lowe’s has signage and stickers on the one I purchased stating HomeKit capabale and it’s not yet. You can buy one with the abcd button and when the firmware is released it will be compatible.Spread the love!April 20, 2018 at 2:37 pm #1139catParticipant
ROBMEHRER, thanks for the info. From what I am reading here, I might wait until the firmware comes out.Spread the love!April 23, 2018 at 5:55 pm #1198
CAT, if your purchased timer has an ABCD program button, then it is the homekit compatible timer. There is no indicator on the outside of the box that it is homekit compatible, but if you purchase one and it doesn’t have the D on th eprogram button, contact our support team and we’ll be able to resolve that for you.
However, Homekit certification has not yet been achieved and we are still working on it. While the hardware is ready, the software is not.Spread the love!April 24, 2018 at 6:53 pm #1221
My Home Depot has the Orbit signs that have the homekit badge as well but I checked inside several boxes and they are all the A B C version. My guess is that the signs were sent to the stores with instructions on when to put them up and they were put up early. I’ll just keeping checking back.Spread the love!April 27, 2018 at 12:55 pm #1244ugurParticipant
I recently bought one with ABCD program button (from orbitonline). I cannot find the HomeKit setup code on the device or the packaging. Does anyone know where I can find it?Spread the love!April 27, 2018 at 3:56 pm #1246ReyGParticipant
HomeKit is not available yet. Once it becomes available with a firmware update, I’m sure Orbit will provide us with instructions on how to add it.Spread the love!April 29, 2018 at 4:17 pm #1272rotaflexParticipant
I just bought and installed the 12 station version. The firmware says – DEBUG-0010. Is Orbit planning to update it?Spread the love!May 1, 2018 at 4:25 pm #1341
We are still working on the Homekit Certification. The firmware that the ABCD timer is being release on DEBUG-0010, but will be updated to version 21 shortly.Spread the love!May 2, 2018 at 6:32 pm #1374
Will the indoor timer be homekit certified as well? I noticed at Home Depot today they have a banner up for the indoor timer that has a homekit badge, but the boxes themselves don’t have the badge.Spread the love!May 2, 2018 at 9:26 pm #1384TimBParticipant
From several posts and also email replies, I believe Orbit is working on Apple approval for homekit support before they can roll out the app that supports homekit. My guess is this process must be taking much longer than they had planned. I’m not Orbit, I’m just a customer.Spread the love!May 2, 2018 at 9:51 pm #1386
That doesn’t answer my question. All of the homekit posts in this thread have referred to the outdoor timer with the buttons, so I’m clear there that the outdoor timers with the A B C D buttons will receive homekit support. My question is will the indoor timer also receive homekit support? Or has Home Depot made a mistake with the signage?Spread the love!May 6, 2018 at 3:50 pm #1447starkenatorParticipant
I found an ABCD unit at my local Lowe’s. So they are out there.Spread the love!May 8, 2018 at 9:14 pm #1510
I found an ABCD unit today as well (in an ABC box).
Still hoping to hear back from Orbit on whether the current indoor unit will be homekit compatible with an update as well.Spread the love!May 9, 2018 at 5:57 pm #1590
@joshbish the indoor timer will be homekit compatible as well, once it is released.Spread the love!May 11, 2018 at 10:29 pm #1725robmehrerParticipant
Do we have any time frame for HomeKit updates?Spread the love!
