August Smart Lock 3 + Homekit Wifi Range Problem solved

Cupertino, November 19, 2020


Leaving this here, because I've been looking for this information for a week and I just received the official word in August. Hoping this will help someone who is in an experience similar to mine!

& # x200B;

IF your Apple TV or other hub is too far from August Smart Lock, you'll not be able to connect to your device via Wi-Fi from homeKit, even if you're able to do so directly from the August app.

& # x200B;

My hope was that if I used August Connect between my blockchain and my hub, I could fix this. Today, support in August confirmed that this will not work. The connection hub communicates ONLY to the August application.

& # x200B;

The next thing for me to explore is whether I can add an August plugin to the RaspberryPi running homebridge and connect this way (such as through the August web APIs and not a Bluetooth connection).

If anyone has other ideas, I'd love to hear them, but my hope is that this post saves you some time trying to solve this 🙂
