Re: Homekit

Since May?  That's nothing.  I have been waiting for nearly THREE YEARS!  That was the ONLY reason why I purchased this miserable product.

Re: Homekit

I now own 4 Ring products. I'm using the Apple eco system and would love to see Ring products added to the Apple HomeKit framework. I still can't believe we've been waiting for over 3 years.

Re: Homekit

I see this thread has not been responded to by anyone from Ring. I to am waiting for HomeKit support. Does Ring not even monitor their own community messages???

Re: Homekit

Ring does monitor these forums. But they probably have some type of gag order regarding certain topics...

Re: Homekit

Ring has been promising for years to integrate HomeKit into its video doorbell pro the first excuse was that apples HomeKit required security chips which I did but now that Apple has made that security part of their product in HomeKit software encryption there's no excuse ring not to integrate it other than the fact that they were bought out by Amazon and Amazon doesn't want Apple to compete with them on their own product. I wouldn't hold my breath for HomeKit integration ever I'm sure Alexa will get first pick even though Ring keeps promising that they'll do HomeKit and have been for the last four years

If you have some basic DIY skills then try out a Raspberry PI with the Homebridge skill. Homebridge brings together various products that are not directly supported by Homekit. Ring, Smartthings and MyQ work fine with Homebridge and I can see all of them and control them from the Home app on your i Device.

Let's remind anyone looking into it that Homebridge requires your Ring Username/Password added to a plain text file..

Re: Homekit

Not sure what you are referring to. I installed Homebridge over the weekend. It asks for a Refresh Token that you get when you enter your Ring ID, Password and 2FA code when you set up the Homebridge-Ring integration. All that's in the Homebridge configuration file is a very long token string.

 

If it stored your Ring ID and Password I would not link them.
