HKSV specific motion not working with HomePod as hub

Cupertino, October 5, 2021

Ever since iOS 15 beta I've had HKSV basically not work, and it still continues to not work after public release. Right now:

- If my HomePod is the hub, all recording options and notification options are not respected. That is, I can ask for a camera to record/notify only animal and it will do it for any motion.
- If my AppleTV is the hub, [HKSV doesn't record at all.](

Anyone else seeing this and have a solution? I've already tried power-cycling cameras and factory resetting the HomePod. No change.

EDIT: ok I reset the cameras and that helped with the Eufy cameras but not the Logitech ones. I then reset the Apply TV and forced it to become hub, and that’s seemed to have fixed it?

EDIT 2: ok it worked for about 5 hours and without any reason it stopped working. I might just give up.

EDIT 3: without reason it started to work again! And then stopped working until I restarted my Apple TV. This is wild.

EDIT 4: I noticed the specific recording settings work when the Apple TV is *asleep* and doesn’t work when it’s on. Just ridiculous.

EDIT 5: now it seems to be totally fixed without me having done anything. Works when Apple TV is asleep or not.
