The built-in HomeKit Integration app allows you to share devices from your Hubitat Elevation hub to Apple HomeKit®. This allows use of the Apple Home app or Siri® with devices from Hubitat that do not natively support HomeKit.
NOTE: This integration is currently in beta. Please report any issues on the Community forum and keep in mind that the integration is subject to change. We are aiming for certification, but for the moment, you will receive a warning that Hubitat is not a certified accessory when adding it to HomeKit.
This is not the same as the "Accessory out of compliance" error. If this happens, try removing any recently added devices, as one may be a problem. We aim to resolve such problems during the beta. Posting with more information in the forums (e.g., which device and driver if you figure this out) may be helpful in the meantime.
Most Z-Wave, Zigbee, and built-in virtual devices are supported. Devices that are not supported (per Apple restrictions for HomeKit bridges) include:
NOTE: This integration is one-way: Hubitat devices can be shared with HomeKit. This does not allow for direct integration of HomeKit-only devices into Hubitat.
When adding or removing devices, it may take 20-30 seconds for the changes to be reflected in HomeKit. The Home app, if open, may also need to be closed and re-opened.
To disable the HomeKit integration, return to the HomeKit Integration app by navigating to Apps > HomeKit Integration. Then, select Disable HomeKit Integration and select OK on the prompt to confirm. This will prevent Hubitat from communicating with HomeKit, and your devices will appear in Home as non-responsive.
You may re-enable the integration at any time by selecting Enable HomeKit Integration, and devices should work as before.
Restart integration: reloads devices and restarts HomeKit integration on Hubitat
Unpair all controllers: unpairs the integration app from HomeKit; any devices integrated via this app will no longer function in HomeKit and would need to be removed and re-added after re-pairing the hub in order to function again

This integration offers direct integration to HomeKit and does not require any external services (e.g., HomeBridge). Users may wish to have an Apple "home hub" to enable use of HomeKit devices while away from home and other HomeKit features, but this is not required, nor is it an issue specific to Hubitat Elevation.
