Homekit (Beta) Driver/Device Compatibility

Many years ago I wrote a virtual temperature sensor driver that is updated remotely with the info from Acurite temperature gauges. In addition to these devices I also have several virtual devices using the built-in Virtual Temperature driver. When I enable the new Homekit app the former devices are listed as not compatible while the latter are. My question is, what are the rules/requirements around driver compatibility for Homekit?

The difference is documented here:

Built-in virtual drivers are supported; custom ones are not (early on, there was some discussion about whrwher Apple's guidelines permitted any custom drivers, but the current interpretation is that custom Zigbee and Z-Wave drivers are fine, aside from the other documented restrictions).


Good enough. I can probably make what I need work with the vitual drivers
