Be careful before you buy SwitchBot Hub 2

Cupertino, September 18, 2023

Their Matter support for HomeKit is still in beta with bugs and lack of proper support for their products. Trying to keep my frustrations aside, here's my experience: BOTs are in a very difficult state in HomeKit because they can only be displayed as light. A bot in Press mode will not reset its Light state back to "off" after switching. AC controls (IR devices) through HomeKit are faulty or not working at all. My AC will say "No Response" every few seconds and won't respond to commands. (FYI: Also missing are controls for fan speed, AC light, occupancy sensor, and blade direction (aka vertical/horizontal swing)). I hope the experience was better for others, but I think it's important to be aware of others before making the purchase. TLDR: It's beta, don't buy now if you want HomeKit support. ..damn YouTube.
