Renesas' HomeKit development kit represents a certified solution for the Apple HomeKit Accessory Profile (HAP), specification R14, supporting all Bluetooth® low energy profiles within Apple’s Smart Home platform.

The kit is built on the DA1468x 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 DA1468x 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 accessories.

The DA1468x HomeKit Development Kit consists of the HomeKit SDK* and DA1468x Development Kit USB, Basic or Pro.

* The Homekit SDK is only available to valid MFI licensees and license will be checked before delivery.
