HMMM,
this is both good news and bad news. Good news that Homekit support is coming very soon. Bad news about B-Hyve controllers that will support Homekit. I recently purchased a 57946 timer specifically to support HomeKit and only after first reaching out to Orbit via chat on Jan. 23rd. My conversation was very specific as was the answer:”If it is a bhyve, then it will be able to get the firmware update. The model your thinking of is the 57946 and that one will be able to be compatible.”

Am I now stuck with a new timer that will not be able to be upgraded via firmware to support Homekit? Mine looks like the picture on the right with A, B, C.
Anxiously awaiting your reply.
Tom
