Apple Homekit will be awesome. I have invested a lot of money for my smart home. Everything that I own is Apple based. I have 0 Google or Amazon device. When I was given a Amazon Alexa Echo for Christmas I just rewrap it and gave it away. PLEASE make Wyzecam work with APPLE.
I read somewhere that Apple Homekit requires certain hardware for encryption or something. If that’s the case, the existing Wyze will not work. I have full Apple eco system and not planning to change to Google or Amazon. So, I guess I have to wait for the Wizen Homekit version before I invest this.
Or I just buy a few cheapest Wyze cams for the time being. I would be sad to throw away the old cams though.
We just had a very positive meeting with Apple about HomeKit at CES. We made the commitment to study the feasibility to add Wyze cams to HomeKit.
The rest being under NDA, I can’t say more.
Hope this means good things for the future possibility of HomeKit integration.
Since Google Assistant/Home integration is currently in development and it will require HLS video streams (I believe the same protocol HomeKit uses), hopefully HomeKit integration could come soon after Google Assistant/Home. Fingers crossed!
We were hoping that HLS could be used and was, in fact, the reason we choose it for Google Assistant over the other protocol but apple’s engineers clarified that HLS is good for server to client. Not necessarily from device to client so we have to look at a different protocol.
