HomeKit secure video

I was wondering if anyone knows if these cameras are compatible with HomeKit secure video, I was looking at the help section, but I see conflicting information.

The last drop ... giving up all ...

I've been struggling with HomeKit and light bulbs for months. Unstable ... I managed to make scenes work with only 2 light bulbs, but more than 4, you just never know .. But this is the straw that made me go back to the old-fashioned wall switches .. You had to reset HomeKit for other […]

Homekit has no idea where I am

In the last month, my house has no idea when I'm leaving. I have an Apple TV 4K and 3 Homepod Minis as hubs. My rooms (2 Eve Homes and 1 Aqara G3) used to start all on when I left home (and received alerts), but suddenly it stopped working. My partner and I are […]

All cameras are streaming, but no longer recording

UPDATE: All cameras have started recording again. I didn't take any action, they just came back online after about a week. Realize. So, I've seen some of these posts in the past, but none of them show a clear solution. I hope to post this and maybe raise the issue to the level of being […]

"Looks like that scene hasn't been set yet."

I have a setup with 5 HomePod Minis (two are in a stereo pair) and a bunch of smart light bulbs and light strips from different manufacturers. Until yesterday, I could always tell Siri through the HomePod Mini, let's say, in the kitchen, to turn on the lights in that room, simply saying "turn on […]

Every year, I install all my outdoor and indoor Christmas lights through automation so that they all light up at sunset and then go out around midnight.
