Problems with buttons, motion sensors and automation using HomeKit with tvOS 14.2 beta

Cupertino, October 20, 2020

The other day I had problems with the HomeKit setup in which my iPhone does not refresh at all (always displaying the Update), where my iPad was instantly. Maybe I decided to upgrade my Apple TV to iOS 14.2 beta and that's when the problem started.

At present, none of the following works:

- Press the buttons that correspond to the HomeKit actions
- Automations triggered by motion sensors
- Voice-triggered automations
- Anything triggered by NFC through shortcuts

When I go into devices and perform testing, they all work very well. I can also confirm when I press and move the button that the buttons or sensors correctly detect the right things.

Does anyone else have this problem?
