This sucks. After advertising that Gen 2 has the required MFi chip for HomeKit, and being told that Gen 2 does not yet support HomeKit, instead of it will not support HomeKit made many believe HomeKit was coming. Chamberlain made the same mistake, but they offered everyone in the community a free HomeKit Hub. I only bought the Gen 2 because of the advertised upcoming HomeKit support. Rachio needs to own up and offer a Hub or a major discount to Gen 2 owners that have been asking about and waiting for HomeKit support.
Also when Gen 2 owners asked about HomeKit support they were told to look at Apple’s supported partners in the Keynote. That was the same as tell people it was coming. This is a complete fail Rachio. You need to fix this and learn to give people a yes or no answer instead of leading them on only to let them down later.
