For those of you with Meross Collies, the latest firmware is out. This one allows you to (finally) hide unused opener channels. Some things I noticed:
- the upgrade is done through the meross app
- you have to re-pair the meross with Homekit after the upgrade. Meross was pretty clear about this in their update email, but not everyone gets those.
- you do the re-pairing through the Home app, not the meross app.
- if you can, write down the HK code before you start. Saves you from climbing up a ladder to scan the HK code
- once paired, the collie becomes a bridge with three doors. You hide the unused doors in the meross app by inactivating the channel(s).
- obviously you have to re-add the new doors to your automations.
Not sure if this was coincidence or not but my entire internet connection went down post upgrade. My isp connection died and I ended up struggling for about 20 minutes troubleshooting and rebooting various things before it finally fixed itself. Also, there definitely seems to be more lag with my meross switches post upgrade.
