    I’ve got:

    0032 on my Control Box wt25-0001
    0041 on my hose timer ht25-0000
    0030 on my wifi gateway bh1-0001

    Nothing about HomeKit anywhere in here and they all claim to be up to date.

    Yeah, calling BS on the addition of Homekit. Everything is up to date and there is nothing mentioning Homekit in the app nor on the website.

    Just chatted with Orbit support:

    4/16/2020 11:26:00 a.m. System: Thank you for choosing Orbit!
    11:26:02 a.m. System: Interaction alerting Noelle K.
    11:26:04 a.m. System: Noelle K has joined the conversation.
    11:26:32 a.m. Derek: hello
    11:26:40 a.m. Noelle K: Hello Derek, my name is Noelle and I will be assisting you today
    11:26:50 a.m. Derek: hi noelle
    11:26:54 a.m. Noelle K: I see that you are just wondering what the latest firmware for your device is, is that correct?
    11:27:20 a.m. Derek: correct
    11:28:02 a.m. Noelle K: could you provide me with the model number for the timer in question?
    11:28:16 a.m. Derek: wt24-0001
    11:28:47 a.m. Noelle K: the model number is located somewhere on the timer and is a 5 digit number
    11:29:27 a.m. Derek: does it not show it in the app?
    11:30:09 a.m. Noelle K: It will show the MAC ID in the app
    11:30:18 a.m. Noelle K: I can find your current versin through that as well by looking it up
    11:30:19 a.m. Derek: okay, will that work?
    11:30:49 a.m. Derek: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
    11:31:23 a.m. Noelle K: Yes it should. one moment please
    11:32:45 a.m. Noelle K: I see that your device is on the current firmware
    11:33:29 a.m. Derek: which is?
    11:34:33 a.m. Noelle K: 0020
    11:35:23 a.m. Derek: okay, according to forum posts, there is a newer firmware version that just came out which finally adds Homekit support (which was promised 2 years ago)
    11:35:41 a.m. Derek: is this true?
    11:35:57 a.m. Noelle K: If that is, we do not have that information on our side yet to verify it.

    11:36:13 a.m. Noelle K: The newest firmware version that I can confirm is only on our indoor/outdoor timers currently.
    11:36:21 a.m. Noelle K: If that includes homekit or not I am not sure.
    11:36:57 a.m. Derek: sounds like they give you guys as little information as they give us customers

    I’m at firmware version 0039 on my bhyve 12 station timer WT25G2-0001. Tried updating it through the app but it said “Update skipped: Firmware is already up to date.”

    I have 0039 on the timer and hose controllers, and it won’t update.

    Meanwhile, Orbit has spent their time building an AD SECTION in the damn app!! So they can sell you more stuff that fails to meet promises.

    I think we have a troll amongst us…
    Must be bored with SIP conditions.

    Apart from no HomeKit my recently updated app (1.9.1) has got a lot of problems.

    I’ll trying calling support again on the app. Last time I called support they had no knowledge on the HK feature.

    The only reason why I still have this thing is because the time it took and how nicely I installed this unit on my wall. I did it that way because I thought it would be the last sprinkler timer I would have to install in this home and would include homekit. Where is homekit? Well at least the job of the wires being run through the wall at the location of the unit is done for when I upgrade to rachio.

    Hi all, I know we’re all waiting for HomeKit on our timers. I made a video showing how to get it into HomeKit using Homebridge here: https://youtu.be/CJ6-W9D2PCM

    This does require Homebridge to work but the process is actually really simple now. There is another video on my channel showing how to get up and running using a Raspberry Pi, and shows an example of our other dear friend Ring, being brought into HomeKit using this method.

    This could be a fun weekend project? Anyway, hope some folks in here find it useful.

    This will not work on anything with more than 4 zones. there is a bug in the guys software. If you have a 6 zone unit youre SOL. ive had this setup for months.
