HomeKit Compatibility on Linksys Velop WHW03 and WHW03B (AKA AC2200)

I updated my Velops compatibility with HomeKit today. I had to do it through the manual process, because the automatic update didn’t work.

You have to do each Velop node separately and twice I found that the installation did not work. A restart of the node eliminated the problem.

I also found that it kept telling me that the firmware was incorrect for the hardware I had, even though I checked and checked again. I have WHW03B V2 and the V2 firmware worked.

I also have a WHW03 for which I needed the V1 software. Fortunately, Linksys made it available a short time ago and I cheated on a copy. It’s not available on their website at the time of writing, but it’s around 😉 It’s an older version than V2.

So, here’s the story of my building. a network of trust in an old house in California, where the walls seem to cause me trouble. I go from the end of Apple Airport to Linksys Velop, why I had to add more nodes and finally add HomeKit support today.
