Ring's video doorbell and spotlight are about to support Apple HomeKit

If you own a Ring product and use it primarily with an Apple device, you’ll be happy to hear HomeKit support is finally about to arrive.

Ring, the company, has been claiming it will add HomeKit support to its products, such as its popular Ring video doorbell, for at least three years. But when Amazon acquired Ring last year, many people thought this support would never arrive. Think again. The company has just received HomeKit certifications for its Video Doorbell Pro and Spotlight Cam — more than a year after Amazon first promised us it was still coming.

As first reported by Zatz Not Funny, Twitter user Daniel Feodorov recently spotted, on Apple’s MFi licensing page, an indication that Ring earned HomeKit certification for two products. This discovery comes just a few days after Ring once again pledged on its Twitter that it’s bringing HomeKit compatibility, along with “other exciting integrations”. It said it would share information on timing “soon” – and we’re still waiting.

To be clear, with HomeKit compatibility, Ring’s doorbell and spot light will be able to kick off automations once it detects motion, and it will allow iPhone and iPad users to skip the Ring app and answer their doorbell directly using the Apple Home app on their mobile devices.

So, yes, it looks HomeKit support will finally land any day now. We just need an official announcement from either Ring or its parent company. With WWDC 2019 happening in June, maybe we will learn more by then, or perhaps, at the event.
