    Dear Air Heads Team , 

    We have a requirement to Provide a solution with aruba access points that needs to be integrated with Apple Home kit .

    Client is expecting to manage Aruba APs as well from the Apple Home Kit .

    As of now we know that there are many third party tools/devices which can be integrated with other non home kit devices using Opensource codes / Plugins.
    Do we have feature in aruba to integrate with Third party tool which again integrates with Apple home kit . 

    Has any body came across an use case like this.

    Can i get any reference docs /datasheets for the above Scenarios .

    Your Support will be highly Appreciated .

    Thankyou in Advance for the Solution.

    Apple Home Kit looks like consumer technology and mostly focussed on IoT solutions, and intended to make things as simple as possible by leaving out advanced features that are used in company networks.

    Aruba APs are enterprise technology which has different properties than home/residential products. So I don't think such an integration exists or would even make sense.

    Do you have an idea how 'managing AP from Home Kit' would look like? What is expected as feature from it?
