0.85 HomeKit and wemo

With 0.85 wemo now starts after homeassistant starts up similar, I believe to Zwave. Now my wemos are not seen by homekit. How can I get home kit to start after both my zwave and wemo have started up?

In configuration.yaml in the HomeKit entry I included:

# Homekit setup
  auto_start: False

Then I used an automation to start HomeKit after homeassistant has started:

- id: '1539029645700'
  alias: Start HomeKit
  - event: start
    platform: homeassistant
  condition: []
  - delay: 00:05
  - service: homekit.start

You could modify the 5 minute delay to however long it takes Wemo to start.

Thanks for this, had same issue.

Question is why did it get changed?
