Is the Internet Gateway device compatible with Apple's HomeKit?

It clearly isn't yet ... but will it be?

The Internet Gateway will not be compatible to HomeKit. Apple's HomeKit will work with our products that connect to your wireless network, like the MyQ Garage and our Wi-Fi garage door openers.

Wow this is pretty upsetting. I purchased a garage door opener just a few weeks ago. I asked my dealer about getting a unit with built in WiFi and he said he didn't carry them and that he could provide the bridge/hub for the same functionality. Well now I guess it turns out I have a garage door opener that won't be Homekit compatible. Feel totally ripped off on this.

Hi James, 

Hopefully I can clear up some confusion. Chamberlain is a HomeKit partner. We are
reviewing our product plans for HomeKit integration. Select Chamberlain MyQ-enabled products will
support HomeKit. This includes specific Chamberlain Wi-Fi Garage Door Openers
with Smartphone Control. 

Best, 

Kylie

Me too.  I ended up with the internet gateway model and am no longer happy with the product.  It works great but I bought the most expensive unit to ensure that I would have all available components.

I agree this is horrible. I bought mine because I was told it would work with homekit. Nothing like being misled by the manufacturer. Doesn't make me want to buy from this company again.

Dawn. I bought an Liftmaster 8500. Will this be compatible with HomeKit?
