No answering accessories

No answering accessories

Before I leave, I feel that HomeKit has made huge gains / improvements in terms of overall system stability, etc. I also have fewer problems today than I did a year ago. I have many items with which I NEVER have problems (MyQ WiFi connectors, Cassette, Meross). Then I have items that sometimes have problems, but usually fix themselves (iHome stuff). Then I have things that will last for weeks, maybe months without problems, then out of nowhere the dreaded “no answer” (Logitech Circle 2 and Hue (only certain lights)). Then I have some Wemo plugs that will work great for weeks or maybe even months, that will stay offline and won’t come back unless I remove them from HomeKit, reset them and then add them back to HomeKit. I appreciate Apple taking a few steps to make it easier for developers to create devices, but there seems to be some kind of oversight for Apple to say “your device sucks, come back and fix it before I can’t be the only one who feels that way. I don’t know exactly where I’m going with this, but I can’t be the only one who gets a little tired of those one or two articles that keep giving “no answer.” In conclusion, I blame third-party manufacturers for 95% + of HomeKit issues.
