Home Key comes to Matter-enabled smart locks

Cupertino, September 14, 2023

In this PDF, Apple lists a new feature coming later this year ([https://www.apple.com/ios/ios-17/pdf/iOS\_All\_New\_Features.pdf](https://www.apple.com/ios/ios-17/pdf/iOS_All_New_Features.pdf)): Improvements to Matter Locks. Control Matter-enabled locks using your iPhone to tap to unlock the door with a Home key, or set up PIN codes in the Home app.​ Could this mean you can set up a startup key for each lock enabled for Matter? Or was this just a limitation that if a producer used Matter they couldn't have a home key before? It would probably be too good to be true and would need NFC in the device anyway.
