The more I think about it … The thread is the future of HomeKit

The fact is that while many, many people have stable HomeKit configurations, there are obviously many who have problems with HomeKit most likely due to network issues. I think we’ve all seen that. Think of a wifi network that previously supported several PCs and a streaming cassette, now suddenly loads with a dozen IoT devices. This stress / charge exposes the weaknesses of your wifi network. Suddenly, you have a network that needs to be modified (channel selection) or debugged (for example, for multiple DHCP servers) or amplified in another way (WiFi extenders, mesh networks, etc.). Now, assuming you have a single Thread border router (also known as the HomePod Mini) with a stable wifi connection, with Thread the rest is magically and dynamically cared for and under the hood, with self-healing and more. Not only is the Thread network more stable than Bluetooth devices without a network, but it’s even faster.
