I have a number of iDevices devices. They work outstandingly within HomeKit, but I’d like to have access to them from Home Assistant.
Could someone who is using these provide some insight into how you’re using them?
- When I try to pair them to the HomeKit Controller, they just pair to my Home.app, I don’t see a way to actually get them to pair to the HomeKit Controller
- Once paired to the HomeKit Controller and published back to Home.app, can you actually upgrade the firmware? Does the iDevices app on your iOS device see them as valid iDevices switches?
- Within HA do you have full access to the nightlights? Including color?
Just curious. For now I’ve left them paired to Home.app and I build virtual light templates published to Home.app with automations to bi-directionally allow the switching to work, but it’s a lot of work to maintain, and you cannot do dimming that I’ve been able to discover.
