Initial ios Setup and errors


#1

Hello, I’d like to get notifications working on my ios device but i can’t seem to get it working properly with the app.

current issue: “(SyncWorker_18) [homeassistant.components.notify.ios] The notify.ios platform was loaded but no devices exist! Please check the documentation at https://home-assistant.io/ecosystem/ios/notifications/ for more information”

  1. I’ve downloaded the app and installed it and connected to my HA instance via my duckdns url with SSL.
    question: when trying to connect for the first time there is a password field, i use my main user password here and it doesnt seem to accept it but when i click done I am able to get a login screen with user name and password and I can log into my HA.

    question: when clicking back and looking at the settings, there aren’t any permissions to allow, like notifications and location

  2. I waited a bit and also rebooted my pi but the ios: component was never auto added to the config through discovery: so I went ahead and added Ios: to the config and rebooted.

  3. waited a bit more and connected again with my ios device and there was an error that there was not a known_devices.yaml file, so I created one…

  4. rebooted and nothing - this error in the logs - “(SyncWorker_18) [homeassistant.components.notify.ios] The notify.ios platform was loaded but no devices exist! Please check the documentation at https://home-assistant.io/ecosystem/ios/notifications/ for more information”

in my Configuration/Integrations there is "Home Assistant iOS: component but when I click it it states "this integration has no devices.

Hopefully someone can help me out with this.

Additional information:

Looking at the docs at - https://www.home-assistant.io/docs/ecosystem/ios/notifications/ I see it mentions a file “ios.conf” in the configuration folder… i’m assuming thats the “config” folder. I don’t see that file (I also see hidden files).

I couldn’t see that file either, but on my system did have a /config/.ios.conf

It could be an error in the docs or it may vary depending on hostOS
