Seems like the worst possible time to buy smart home appliances, when Matter is right around the corner? Better to wait a bit still for devices that won't lock you into a single ecosystem...

I hate homekit with the fire of 1000 suns
Your statement is completely meaningless without specifics.

And I have numerous Homekit devices--bulbs, lock, switches-- and Homekit makes many things much easier to use. I love homekit with the intensity of 1000 suns.

From what I remember it waa Apple, but I could be wrong
Yup, you are wrong. Apple does not “support“ any HomeKit products, manufacturers do. TP Link announced HomeKit support for some of their products, then backed out (like Ring). They have now added support for some of their lines.

I've made the decision to not buy any more smart devices that aren't Matter certified. Why lock myself into an ecosystem?

Hi,

Well it's because it plays well with some brands and not with others

For example, Apple decided to stop supporting Kala smart plugs; thanks God Google and Alexa exist

I also have 3 Lifx lights, for some reason only 1 of them has been paired with HK, for some reason I couldn't connect the other 2 to it, and I tried every troubleshooting step, checked Wifi settings , 2,4 ghz, 5 ghz etc

But I had no issue connecting all 3 of them to Google and Alexa
But for that 1 light that is connected, when I use Siri, it's really fast, I have to admit

I too wanted to use HK exclusively, and I like how I can access it via the control center in my iPhone/iPad, but alas.....

EDIT : just saw that Kasa plugs are mentioned in the original post ; is HK support back on the menu? I bought mine a few years ago and at the time Apple has stopped supporting Kasa plugs
Is it Apple that stopped support or Kasa?

HomeKit is far from perfect, but it works well enough for me to use.
