We have already reported that Onvis wants to offer HomeKit devices with Thread in the future. Most recently, the new Onvis CT3 contact sensor has surfaced on Amazon and should officially launch at the end of November. However, the sales launch is delayed.
With the Onvis CT3 Contact Sensor and the Onvis HS2 Wireless Button, two exciting HomeKit devices are about to be launched. Besides Bluetooth 5, these thread support. As a contact sensor, so far there is only the Eve Door & Window with this technology, and for wireless switches only the Wemo Stage Scene Controller.
Actually, the devices were supposed to officially launch at the end of November. However, the sales launch is delayed, as the manufacturer has now informed us. The contact sensor is expected to launch in mid-December, but the wireless switch with five buttons will not make it under the Christmas tree. This will not be available, most likely, until March 2023.
