I just started using the HomeKit component for HA and previously was running the Homebridge add-on in Hassio. One thing I’ve noticed is when I had Homebridge on Hassio, I could restart my RPi3 and when everything loaded up, all of my room assignments in my iOS Home app were saved. However, with the HomeKit component, everything appears to change back to the same room the Home Assistant homekit.bridge is located. This obviously isn’t ideal as I have to go back through each device and re-assign the rooms but worse is all of my automations in HomeKit lose their devices as well.
I noticed on the HomeKit component page it mentions HomeKit doesn’t support any kind of persistent storage. I’m not sure if this is what the page is referring to but any ideas how Homebridge was able to make this work?
