So I’m relatively new to Home Assistant, my programming skills are extremely limited (so please, bare with me), struggled a bit with the HomeKit integration until all that got finally sorted.
Regarding the vacuum integration,
binary_sensor.irobot_bin_full is passing onto HomeKit as an occupancy sensor, and in the Home app bin full turns into room occupied.
So it makes sense as I’ve looked into the docs of HomeKit Integration and at supported components I see that
binary_sensor defaults to
I believe this should be instead treated as a switch, where
bin_full true or false, and preferably not as
device tracker / person.
Since it seems to me that on Home Assistant dashboard the sensor is treated adequately, Is it possible to manipulate only how this it passed to HomeKit?
Also, I’m really sorry for my ignorance but in the HomeKit Integration - resetting
accessories section, it says:
You may use the service
homekit.reset_accessorywith one or more entity IDs to reset accessories whose configuration may have changed. This can be useful when changing a media player’s device class to
tv, linking a battery, or whenever Home Assistant adds support for new HomeKit features to existing entities.
How? how in the world do I use the service
homekit.reset_accessory? Does that go on the configuration somewhere?
And by the way, if I remove a bridge from the Home app and want to add it again, where do I see the QR code again??? where??
Anyway thanks guys Home Assistant is really super and I’m sure when I get a hold of this it will be mind blowing.
