Has anyone found Meross switches almost 100% reliable?

I bought 4 unique poles in April last year and maybe had to reset them twice (I also set a 2.4ghz SSID, dedicated HomeKit, separately). I'd love to go all-in on the Box, but since they're so solid, I'm having trouble justifying the price.

meross garage door opener - security clearance

So, I just finished installing a Meross switch on my chicken coop. Everything went perfectly, until I tried to use Siri to open the coop. You guessed it. "You must continue on your device" Although I understand that the doors, garage doors, etc. is a security issue, there must be a way to replace it […]

How well does HKSV facial recognition work for the corner camera?

Does the camera need to be placed at eye level on the door? I plan to install an rtsp security camera in the top corner of my porch (with homebridge), but I wonder how good HKSV is at detection and whether or not this would be a good idea. Any thoughts are appreciated!

Great Insteon installation - I'm looking for a change - I'm asking for advice

Hello - I built my own house and installed about 90 Insteon devices that I control with an ISY994 and I was mostly happy. The system is now about 10 years old and lacks interconnections with other platforms such as Alexa. Smarthome.com seems to be interrupting the platform for the most part. So I have […]

PSA: If you need Netatmo support, use Twitter support

I'm not sure when it started, but a few weeks ago I sent a Netatmo support email and received an automatic reply that the support was now redirected to Legrand USA. Two emails and I never got a reply back. Disappointing because my experience with their support when going to their French office was top […]

Is HomePods Mini Stereo Offline Often?

Hi all. I have a problem with automation scheduling. It seems that if I turn off an automation, usually because we want to sleep on a vacation, the automation still happens, until the NEXT day, when it is registered that it is disabled.
