I needed to give someone temporary access to my garage the other day, I thought I could just go into the app or website to set a temporary pin for the keypad.  I could not do this.  

The app/web needs this.

I am sure they are working on it, Due out soon, say 2075 or maybe 2112. but tomorrow, tomorrow, it's always tomorrow with them. Read the Homekit section, or now the Smartthings section.

I share your frustration with the homekit piece and the lack of communication, but the sarcasm isn't very helpful.  I don't think that the sarcastic comments of "John Smith" are going to make them any more motivated.
This is a legit "idea" that I would like to see implemented at some point.  If you have nothing helpful to add, then.... whatever.  It's a garage door opener, stop getting so worked up over it.

I am not worked up over the garage door, I am worked up about being LIED to over and over and over again. I want anyone new to this sick game to know, it is a sick game.

Agreed.  This would probably be a relatively easy fix for existing hub owners by pairing your keypad with the hub instead of directly with the opener and then providing the ability to issue temporary codes via the app / web interface.  So, basically, the hub would check if the temporary code entered on the wireless keypad is valid and, if it is, send the signal to the opener.
