On the new episode of HomeKit Insider, Level Lock has partnered with Rocky Mountain door hardware for new HomeKit-enabled locks, new Logitech firmware coming soon, VOCOlinc is missing in action, and home project updates.
News was light in the world of HomeKit this past week, with the biggest being Level Lock partnering with the premium accessory maker Rocky Mountain Hardware. Level's incredible smart functionality will now be coming to several different door locks in the company's lineup.
We also had several people writing in asking about VOCOlinc. It appears as though the company's website has gone offline, many products are out of stock, and support tickets have gone unanswered. AppleInsider has reached out to the company for comment and thus far we've yet to get a response.
Fortunately, even if VOCOlinc has gone under, HomeKit allows its products to continue to work uninterrupted.
We also got a list of several new enhancements arriving in the new firmware for the Logitech Circle View doorbell cam which may fix ongoing connectivity and overheating issues, though beta testers haven't confirmed this to be the case quite yet.
