HomeKit sends motion alerts even when I'm home.

Hello everyone,

I've searched this sub and found that a lot of people have similar problems to me, but it seems that no one has found a solution in the previous posts, so I figured I'd ask again.

I have 3 Hue motion sensors set up in HomeKit, and in the Home app they are all ready to send motion alerts when I am away from home. The weird thing is that only 1 in 3 actually seems to comply. The other two sometimes send messages when I'm home and other times they won't.

So far I have:
– Confirmed that the sensors are set to send notifications only when I'm away.
– Confirmed that my phone has location services enabled and the Home app is allowed to use my location in the background.
– Restarted all HomeKit hubs on my network.

One of the 3 works as expected and only sends notifications when I'm away.
In addition, I have a number of Arrive Home / Leave Home automations that work as expected, so it looks like it is correctly pulling location from my phone.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
