Does Deco X60 support mDNS?

 

The thing is, I love my Deco M5 in every possible way except that it doesn't support mDNS (as confirmed here) and therefore doesn't work well with Apple HomeKit which seems to utilize it for communication/discovery of HomeKit accessories. 
 

The speed and coverage is great, the stability is insane, I've basically NEVER had to restart any of my three Decos. I get full throughput on my 1000/1000 Mbit/s internet connection.

 

However, since it doesn't support mDNS my Apple devices have to go through my Apple TV which is acting as a hub to perform HomeKit commands. This makes everything more sluggish. Opening the home app on my iPhone or iPad means several seconds for all lights and other HomeKit accessories to display their on/off status. Sometimes it times out and doesn't work at all. Giving voice commands through Siri is hit and miss. Sometimes works quickly sometimes doesn't work at all. On my previous router from another brand, opening the Home app was instant with every device presenting its status immediately. 

 

I'm now looking into Wifi 6 and I want to stay in the Deco line because of stability but if the X60 system still requires an Apple TV to function with HomeKit I'm gonna have to go elsewhere.

@Sperious 

Good day,

Thank you very much for your time and patience.

Sorry for the delay.

Currently, it does not support mDNS yet.

And we have already reported the feedback to the senior engineers  for further evaluation.

Really sorry for the inconvenience.

 

Thanks a lot!
