Anxiously awaiting direct HomeKit support for Wemo Light Switch and Dimmer

I spoke with a rep on the phone right after they announced native support for the plug and they said December - January Wemo will release an update for both. (specifically said... Dec for the Switch and Jan for the Dimmer). If their track record is the same... it'll be another year before we see it. At least we have the Wemo Homekit hub for now. Unfortunately it hasn't been the most reliable. Works on HomeBridge too but native would be best.

HomeKit support for Wemo Mini and Dimmer is available now but no update yet for the insight and light switch. Users of the insight and light switch will still need to use the Wemo Bridge.

Are there plans to add direct Homekit support to the switch like the dimmer is now? Just hate the idea of adding another device like the hub. Thanks!

@tdeprenda

As what Vince_02 said, HomeKit Support for WEMO Dimmer is already available. Try updating its firmware and connect it to Apple HomeKit.

@PTVMan

 

No words yet from our Product Management team if it will be through a firmware update or a new version of the units will be released that supports directly the integration. We're still looking out for the updates and will be cascading it through our website real soon. Please hang tight!

Uh, the CES announcement earlier this week indicated new units will be released directly supporting the integration. The announcement was even posted here on the forum...by your staff...

Is it possible they will still release a firmware update for existing switches? We JUST purchased switches over the holiday and it will be beyond frustrating if the only option to get HomeKit compatibility is to replace them in summer.

Hey Kosh

 

That's a great question. However, we have no word yet from our Production team if there will be any firmware update that will address that. Be posted though, keep visiting our website more often for updates.
