HomeKit update

HomeKit products are becoming increasingly difficult to source.

The current chip shortage has meant that our suppliers have raised the minimum order quantities from hundreds to thousands of individual pieces.

This means an outlay of several hundred thousand and a wait of several months for product to be produced and delivered. Simply this situation is not viable.

Buying HomeKit products through Australian distribution means the wholesale price charged to stock an item is greater than the advertised retail prices from the major chains.

So HomeKit Australia will not be adding any new HomeKit products in the foreseeable future.

Our hot selling HomeKit smart plugs are one of the affected products and at the moment we can't see these being available until at least late this year.

Also the transition to Thread compatibility and Matter integration further adds to the volatility in this market.

HomeKit Australia will focus on Thunderbolt 4 (and USB4) and MagSafe in the immediate future. We also have significant support of Apple's AirTag products and  we continue to add home kit from our sister Infrastructure South West Group's product website.

In the longer term, HomeKit Australia will cease to be a part of ISWG and will become an individual entity. HomeKit Australia will continue to remain in the same ownership and is proudly 100% Australian owned and operated. All stock will continue to be held in Australia.

Thank you for shopping at the HomeKit Australia online Thunderbolt store.
