Lifx Switch and Homekit

Continuing the discussion from LIFX Switch without Cloud:


I’m waiting on the same information, but the promise of Homekit support for Lifx Switch has been a very long waiting game.
To comply, it is believed that Homekit requires the Lifx Switch to work on a local network, (without relying on the internet),

So, is this really going to happen?
Lifx have been suggesting this for 18 months now.

I’m also ready to buy a large amount of lights on a major renovation, but I wouldn’t be buying 12 Switches till you see the Switch actually be Home kit compliant.

I’m just concerned the longer it goes on, the current Switch may not ever be compliant, and there’s a new model around the corner.
