    What about the software authentication that Apple opened up with iOS 11? No need for an authentication chip.

    With BT LE and software authentication I imagine its pretty easy to add this functionality - provided the hardware can handle the software authentication.

    Add HomeKit support and I'll buy immediately. Hopefully software authentication will help make this a reality!

    Deciding between this and the SOMA shades and the HomeKit has me leaning in the direction of SOMA but would rather go with Axis because i’m more comfortable it will lift my shades. Any timeline here? And, would ‘future versions’ be a software update or would be require an entirely new purchase?

    Hi Scott!

    Unfortunately, AXIS Gear is not compatible with HomeKit. This is an integration that is high on our list, but depending on the route we take to achieve it, it might require an entirely new purchase. As soon as we have more information on this, we will post it.

    Put me in the camp of anxiously awaiting HomeKit support! What’s the best way to get notified once it’s available?

    Agreed. The lack of HomeKit support is effectively a deal-breaker. Looking forward to hearing about HomeKit integration in the future!

    Add another voice.   Very interested once HomeKit is included (or imminent).  But will not buy without.

    Same! Holding off on buying until HomeKit support is available.

    I was about to order 6 of these for my home until I noticed I didn't see Apple/Google/Amazon icons anywhere and decided to search for compatibility.

    HomeKit not being supported is a dealbreaker.

    One more plea for HomeKit integration. Love the product but have been holding out for HomeKit as our entire home is using that platform for everything automated. Thanks!
