Finally, install a Circle View ringtone in the UK!

Since there is a depressing lack of HomeKit ringtones available in the UK, including this model, I picked one up when I was in New York for Christmas. I finally installed it yesterday by an electrician and it works perfectly. This is a pretty big time, because I've been wanting a smart ringtone for many […]

My location-based automation (first person gets home and last person leaves home) doesn't work due to issues with my wife's devices / setup. I know that issues like this have been posted many times, and I think I've read every topic on similar issues, as well as a lot of blog posts, and so on. […]

Automation doesn't work ...

It is not uncommon for non-responsive devices to appear in my home. After a few years of repairs, attempts by new suppliers - I came to the conclusion that it has something to do with my Unifi network and I learned to live with it. I also have "off / on" phantom cycles that happen […]

Extreme weather Room for the bell

I live in North Dakota, and after last week, I realized that -60F with a cold wind my bell no longer works. If I'm going to replace it, I might as well get a compatible HomeKit. Do you have anything to do with smart home ringtones rated at at least -20F?

The Logitech bell stopped ringing inside me

My Logitech HomeKit ringer has stopped ringing. It's been a few months and I don't know how to fix it. I don't think the bell went out or anything, but I think it's possible? I'm pretty sure we tried disabling the inner ringer during Halloween while we left our puppy at home, and when I […]

IDevices wall dimmer first impressions

I received 12x [iDevices Dimmer Switches](https://store.idevicesinc.com/idevices-dimmer-switch/) Black Friday for $ 50 each and I replaced the light switches in my house. Wirecutter had described them as too expensive, so I hoped that was the biggest downside? May be? I've seen very little talk about these devices. Like everyone else, I want something as reliable as […]

Homekit Secure Video for (almost) any RTSP compatible camera

Step 1: Rotate a [Homebridge](https://github.com/homebridge/homebridge) instance on a backup computer or Raspberry Pi. I'd recommend doing this anyway, as it adds unofficial support for a bunch of uncertified accessories. Step 2: Upgrade Homebridge [1.4.0-beta 4](https://github.com/homebridge/homebridge/wiki/Homebridge-Beta-Testing). This adds preliminary support for HSV at Homebridge. Step 3: Install [Camera.ui](https://github.com/seydx/homebridge-camera-ui) plugin for Homebridge. Version 5.0.5 adds HSV support […]

Meross plug control issues when AppleTV is configured as a hub

Hi everyone, I recently noticed that some of my automations weren't working properly. At the same time, some Meross plugs didn't work in the Apple Watch Home app, although they work well on the iPhone. If I disable AppleTV as a hub, then I can control those devices on my AppleWatch, but I get alerts […]

Can HomeKit control home / away with the Honeywell thermostat?

I've had ecobees for over 2 years, but it's been faulty lately. I was initially interested in T9, but it didn't have HomeKit. I've had a nest before, but sensor integration is almost useless, so it's not an option. With ecobee I only have 1 home program and 1 sleep program, and then HomeKit controls […]

I just installed a smart Eve switch and sold it to my wife with the promise that I could set up an automation to turn off the hall light 15 minutes after it was turned on (she hates being left on.) But it doesn't seem possible. . I missed something?

HKSV Impressions - Instead of using another camera provider's Cloud

I've had Google dropcam in the past. Must be stored in Google Cloud. Even "HomeKit compatible" cameras like Eufy, Arlo, etc. they use their Cloud to direct their data. This can be a mess waiting to happen and compromising your privacy (see: Eufy !!). I'm most interested in Logitech and Eve for HKSV cameras. Neither […]

Logitech Circle View ringtone, Announced / sounds Alexa.

I switched my ringtone camera to Logitech, and I'm wondering if anyone has found a hacker way to make Amazon Echo devices ring / announce / do something when someone rings the Logitech ringtone? I looked at some of Alexa's homebridge plugins, but it doesn't look like you can create an automated Alexa routine with […]

The deleted scene still reserves its name

I deleted a scene because I wanted to resume it from scratch. Now HomeKit prevents me from naming anything else with the same title. If anyone else knows how to fix a completely new home instance, let me know, and if it doesn't exist, this is a PSA to change your scene titles before deleting […]

HomePod ringtone volume

Is there any way to adjust the volume of the HomePod ringtone for music-independent ringtones? It seems to be related to the overall volume of the HomePod, which I sometimes set to very low. I would love to hear the loud bell, no matter the volume of the music we played last time.

Did the Arlo hub make the ringing faster?

I just bought an Arlo ringtone. The website doesn't say anything about the need for a hub to be HomeKit compatible - but it needs one (I had a feeling it would). I'm glad I received the hub, but I'm wondering if the hub significantly improves the response time from the ringing button to the […]

Air Conditioning Problems - Is there a way Homekit can take control of the locally issued order?

I'm not sure how many people here use Ambi Climate and have integrated it into Apple HK, but give it a try. Mine is not currently configured with HK.
