The “When someone is at home” status is not available to me

The “When someone is at home” status is not available to me

Hello. I use an Apple TV 4k in headless mode as a hub for my HomeKit setup. I’m the only user in the system. For some reason, when I set up accessory automation in Home.app, the “People” condition allows me to select only from the following: “Off”, “When ** I’m ** at home”, “When ** I’m * not * I’d like to select “When ** someone ** is home” / “When ** someone ** isn’t home”, because I intend to share access to the house later. Why ** someone ** options aren’t Is it because I’m the only user? If so, do I have to wait until I actually invite someone before I can set the automations the way I want them to be? Also tangentially linked – for some reason [Home.app]The trigger (https://Home.app) for departure only allows me to select “When I leave” – ​​I would like to select “When ** someone leaves **”. I was able to edit this condition through [Eve.app](https://Eve.app) so now HomeKit says “When ** someone ** leaves”, but why isn’t it exposed to HomeKit? Also, I can no longer create automations for “When ** I leave **, as it is now said” When ** someone leaves ** “. If this is a switch, how can you switch it into HomeKit without [Eve.app](https://Eve.app)? Thanks!
