Motion sensor (busy sensor in HomeKit) Does not work - Latest firmware

Cupertino, January 31, 2021

Hi, I just bought a Gateway 2 and set it up. Homekit devices were not responding, so I called Abode support and updated the firmware to _6.8H. Everything started to work great - the only problem I see now is that the Abode motion sensor that appears as a busy sensor in Homekit doesn't seem to work. The motion sensor is triggered on the Abode website / application, but the Homekit occupancy sensor is not triggered. I also tried removing the motion sensor, reinserting the battery, and adding again. Everything else works - including the occupancy sensor built into the keyboard 2, which is very responsive to Homekit. Has anyone experienced this?
