So a search of the B-Hyve forum for HomeKit comes up with these posts (from their staff):
Thanks for your questions CAMAROGRANA2!
- Homekit will connect via Wi-Fi. Homekit will be available with the timers that have on the manual program button “A,B,C,D” instead of just “A,B,C”.
- We are still working on certification.
Thanks for posting MICHELVE! The MFi chip is installed and the timers are Homekit ready. Soon with an app update you will be able to use it with Homekit.
Both of those are dated 04/02, with no update since, so … I don’t think that B-Hyve has HomeKit integration yet, which probably explains why they don’t mention HomeKit at all on their main site.
FWIW, looks like folks have been buying/using B-Hyve for awhile now? Home Depot has a product review from back in February.
But seriously, boo on Orbit for selling this product as HomeKit ready when they haven’t even been certified yet. An owner on their forum mentioned that the box included the 8-digit HomeKit product code printed on it, but it didn’t work when he tried to add it to HomeKit (surprise). What a mess.
