Re: HomeKit For Routers

"Apple is adding routers to HomeKit. Eero, Linksys, and service providers like Charter Spectrum will be first to include support"

Nothing about NG. 

 

Something you might contact NG support about to see if thats on there long term life cycle for NG products. Looks like this needs to be a collaboration between APPLE and router mfrs.

It sure would be great if they are able to add HomeKit support through a firmware update sometime in the future!

Re: HomeKit For Routers

I'm hoping for this as well. With all of the smart home stuff populating my home, being able to cut certain devices off with ease without affecting homekit would be great. Especially with cameras.
