HomeKit support on iOS8

Is it possible to add HomeKit support? It would be great to be able to tell Siri to open the garage door :D

Supporting Siri is something we always wanted to add. We'll look at HomeKit and see what it offers ...

For the time being, in our next release, coming before year end (currently being beta tested), we are introducing x-callback-url support (http://x-callback-url.com/)
so that external apps can actually control MyDoorOpener (open/close/toggle of any device within MyDoorOpener). With that in mind, we think it
will open up a bunch of new automation possibilities. With apps such as Launch Center Pro (http://contrast.co/launch-center-pro/) or any other
external apps, it will allow endless possibilities. Siri can currently be told to work with Contacts, so maybe there could be some automation possibilities
between Siri -> Contact -> Launch Center Pro -> MyDoorOpener ... We'll need to give that combo a shot. If it works, we'll definitely document it.

Stay tuned!
