Virtual switches have stopped working after the iOS update

Cupertino, September 15, 2020

Hi, I was using a virtual switch to open a garage door, because iOS will not allow the use of geolocation-based home automation, because it sees it as a lock and risks accidentally opening your house.

Everything worked fine until the latest iOS update (coincidence?). The individual homekit switch works, in fact, I tried two and both work as in activation / deactivation itself. But it will not activate my garage, if I test the homebridge automation, it shows that the switch has been triggered.

Has Apple removed the solution to use another switch to automate another device?
