Tackle all the HomeKit and smart home implications of Apple's "Spring Loaded" event, plus new firmware updates — and new product launches.
Outside of the Apple Event we discuss the new VOCOlinc Door Lock, the release of the Belkin Stage Scene Controller, and the looming launch of CHIP.
The Netatmo Smart Outdoor Camera also received an update this past week to enable HomeKit Secure Video. The Smart Video Doorbell update will be landing soon, too, though no date was promised.
Last week the Smartmi P1 launched but some issues postponed the delay. Smartmi is now relaunching the device and offering $40 if you use promo code CLEANAIR40 through May 2, 2021.
