Version 1.115.01 beta (iOS), beta (Android)

This version introduce new way of discovering and connecting to tedee devices via Bluetooth that will be released later with a HomeKit firmware update. During this test we want to make sure that backward combability is working and users doesn't have issues with connecting to exiting devices via Bluetooth.

What to test:

  • Check if adding device process is working
  • Check if you can update device firmware from mobile
  • Check if you can unlock/lock the lock from phone/widget via Bluetooth
  • Check if Apple Watch is working

We already have tested this and everything worked fine. Please share your feedback under this post.

Dear Konrad, could you please share more information on the procedure of tests and what to test. Are we able to connect the lock to the home App from Apple, yet? If yes, how to initiate the process?

Witam. Panie Konradzie zainstalowałem na iOS TestFlight oraz przystąpiłem do wersji Beta Tedee z podanego linku. Jak mam dodać zamek do aplikacji Dom ?

This version does not yet introduce HomeKit support so you can't use your lock from home app yet. But we made a lot changes that will make this possible in future, this changes are strictly connected with Bluetooth communication. Because of the amount of changes we want to make sure that this version is working correctly for our users on daily bases as well as it is working correctly with all our features that's requires Bluetooth communication such as WiFi configuration, firmware update or auto-unlock.

I see. Thought I have missed it somewhere and do not test the right things. Thanks for clarifying

Dear Konrad, any timeframe behind the planning you mentioned earlier? I do have our lock in HomeKit right know over Tobias homebridge plugin. It would be interesting to directly compare the performance and details of the integration. Can I pull the latch separately in the Tedee HomeKit Integration?

yes you can pull the latch but because of HomeKit limitations it will not be as simple as button click

This is how it looks like in my home app. If you would like to click you can always use the Eve App or other HomeKit Apps

Hi Lars, ok! Actually testflight says, no new testers are acceptable.
