Notification to an iPhone not arriving

I have created a simple test notification, but whilst it shows as ‘triggered’ within the Automation page if I change the state from ‘off’ to on’ within Developer Tools / States, nothing comes through to my iPhone. But I can’t work out why.

alias: Notification Test
description: ""
  - platform: state
      - binary_sensor.lumi_lumi_sensor_magnet_aq2_opening
    from: "off"
    to: "on"
condition: []
  - service: notify.mobile_app_iphone_4
      message: Test Door Open
      title: Test Open Door
mode: single

HA is aware of the iPhone - if I am away from home it shows as Away, so why does the notification not come through?

I am running the latest HA iOS app (2023.2 (2023.444)

Any ideas where I might be going wrong?


First go to settings in the mobile app and check if notifications are authorised in the companion app settings.

At the bottom, you can also check the remaining free notifications for today (487 in my case out of 500)

Second, obviously, I assume that you allowed the notification in the phone settings themselves.

Thank you @Olivier1974 - there are times in life when one just needs a huge stone to crawl under in shame. Turning on Notifications within the iPhone solved my problem. All very embarrassing :scream:

We are all humans after all :slight_smile:
