After a false start back in February, Belkin has finally confirmed it will start the roll out of HomeKit support to its of Linksys Velop Tri-Band routers. This update will bring HomeKit Secure Router support which allow users lock down and manage devices on their network.

The feature that was first announced at WWDC last year is able to restrict HomeKit devices from connecting to the internet. In addtion, users can also  firewall HomeKit accessories to prevent them from communicating with other devices on the home network.Linksys Velop routers compatible with HomeKit
