    Now that Apple is allowing software authentication in ios 11 without the need for additional hardware from RainMachine to authenticate how soon will RainMachine apply for HomeKit integration and provide a software update for us? Rachio has unofficially confirmed they are going to do so for their second gen hardware.

    One more vote for HomeKit support. IOS 11 will allow it without any hardware changes. Please add this.

    Hi, all
    Sorry for this late reply.
    We are working directly with Apple to be able to provide HomeKit software implementation that will not require the hardware chip to be installed on the RainMachine product motherboard.
    Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    Apple removed the hardware requirement back in June of this year.  HomeKit authentication can be done with software authentication with no hardware requirement at all.  It's just a matter of you all adding HomeKit through your software and doesn't require you to work with Apple at all.  Hopefully because of this, this feature will be added sooner rather than later.

    Hi, Jestered
    We thought that too, but it's not that simple as it sounds. Trust us, we do not hide behind words.
    Thank you for your understanding.

    Can we get this topic updated to "Under Development" or at least "Gathering Feedback" if RainMachine is working on finally getting this done?

    Can the community have a target release time frame, or a "Date for a Date".  A yearly quarter (Q1-Q4) target would suffice....
