Hello tedee users,
We've been working hard on HomeKit integration. In the upcoming weeks we will release few beta versions for mobile and devices and we'll ask you for help. Please note that the "beta" versions may be unstable. By joining the testing program, you acknowledge that application may not match quality standards as a regular version does.

Version 1.115.01 beta (iOS), 126.96.36.199 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:
We already have tested this and everything worked fine. Please share your feedback under this post.
I didn't post an update quite long, sorry for that, we were fully focused on HomeKit certification. So what is the plan. There will be two updates first for new Tedee Locks and this one is almost done. Because this update will be the biggest one and most difficult in our history, we just want to 'properly' celebrate this as a company :) Please follow us and soon you should see the public release.
The second update is for existing locks. Here we still waiting for certification. The firmware is almost the same but Apple has few additional constrains. Unfortunately it is taking little longer than we expected.
HomeKit for new locks:
HomeKit for existing locks:
This division is enforced by Apple. From user perspective both locks will have the same features the only difference will be how user will add such lock to Home.
I think we are more open and transparent than any other IoT company. We updated you with:
So I think we are giving you a lot of information. We cannot give you exact date because in most cases:
As you can see above the public release is in progress and you will see it soon (few weeks), it will be connected with other announcements and this is why it is delayed. I can promise you that HomeKit will be delivered to all of you in this quarter. Thank you for your patience.
Hi Lars, thank you for your understanding and we appreciate your engagement. We are currently working on informing all users about HomeKit, unfortunately this will also take some time. The upcoming update will close the HomeKit feature for new devices. We are currently focusing on implementing HomeKit for existing devices and we have the firmware ready but we need to work out the SMALL details with Apple. Unfortunately, Apple during the holiday period is not very responsive so the whole process is prolonged.
The HomeKit support for new locks was released:
HomeKit for new locks [DONE]:
We still waiting for certification result from Apple (for existing locks), should be known in next 2 weeks.
HomeKit for existing locks:
Same here Konrad.
I have been wondering how the HomeKit process will work for existing lock as we do not have "Homekit IDs".
Are you going to issue and send an "Homekit ID" for each existing Tedee lock (already sold and installed) ?
This is important if we want to sell our locks in a few years.
Please describe the process.
I second Lars' request for update.
Also, It would be nice to receive a reply to my message above ...
Certification is still in progress we are waiting for audit result from Apple.
Bismuth, it will just work you do not have to warry about. You will add Tedee Lock to Home App using Tedee App. You will not need the HomeKit Setup Code
