DA14681 HomeKit Development Kit

DA14681 HomeKit Development Kit

Create HomeKit™ Smart Home accessories with the best performance and user experience

Dialog’s second generation development kit represents the first certified solution for the HomeKit Accessory Profile (HAP) 2.0, supporting all Bluetooth low energy profiles within Apple’s Smart Home platform. 

The kit is built on Dialog’s DA14681 System-on-Chip (SoC), the most integrated single-chip solution that is purpose-built for IoT development, providing connectivity to a variety of battery-powered devices. It is the first SoC on the market with dedicated hardware acceleration for HomeKit security operations which ensures end-to-end application encryption, safeguarding personal information in transit.

The DA14681 HomeKit development kit lowers the barriers for smart home device development. It creates the fastest response times and the best possible user experience for end devices, with initial pairing taking less than 2.8 seconds and responding faster than 250 ms whenever an iOS device issues a command. This creates an instant response whenever a user interacts with a HomeKit powered light, door lock, smoke detector or other accessory.

The DA14681 HomeKit Development Kit consists of the HomeKit SDK, DA14681 Development Kit Basic or Pro and a flexible add-on board to interface with the separately available MFi chip.
