WARSAW, POLAND (14 SEPTEMBER 2021) – Tedee is proud to announce the brand’s smart lock is now compatible with the Apple HomeKit smart home system. New functionality allows the operation of tedee through the Home app and asking Siri on enabled devices, including a smart lock in automated scenes and access sharing.
The long-awaited feature is introduced in the latest firmware update, backward compatible with all existing tedee smart locks. The integration allows full HomeKit functionalities without the need for tedee smart bridge. Available starting 13 September 2021.
“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.”
Apple HomeKit certification is a long-term, multi-step verification if a device guarantees seamless performance with security specifications, hardware solutions, and software reliability. After over a year in the making, HomeKit compatibility is now available with just a click in the tedee app. The new feature does not require tedee smart bridge and has no impact on the product’s price.
“We are so happy to be compatible with Apple HomeKit – and join the best brands on the smart home market,” said Chuchra. “Easily added to the Home app, tedee lets users control their door lock with the interface they love, Apple Watch, or by asking Siri on enabled devices.”
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.
