If the statements do not work with secure accessories

Cupertino, October 22, 2020

Hello everyone,

Since upgrading to OS 14, I've noticed that shortcut automations with if statements that get the status of secure accessories (either through the if statements or the get state block) always fail. However, pressing the play button works perfectly. This is present even with personal automation in the Shortcuts application. If the device is locked and the automation tries to get the status of a secure accessory, I get a notification that says "Operation requires unlocking the device". I assume it's the same error with the HomeKit shortcut, but Home Hubs can't display the error exactly. Does anyone else have this problem? I've already reported it to Apple.
