TP-Link won’t be supporting HomeKit in its Smart Plug Mini after all

"Due to changes to our roadmap, the Smart Kasa Smart Plug Mini (HS105) will not support Apple HomeKit," says the help document. "Despite the change in focus of this benchmark, our team is committed to developing innovative smart home solutions that will continue to delight our customers all over the world."

While lack of support for HomeKit may be a concern for some iOS users, the smart plug has full planning and power features with its proprietary iOS and Android apps, as well as control compatibility Voice with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant and Microsoft Cortana.

This change does not necessarily mean that HomeKit will not be supported in future TP-Link products. In addition, its low price and positive feedback from its users mean that the Kasa Smart Plug Mini will probably remain easy to sell for those looking to control small electronics like lighting and remote coffee brewers.
