After hours of searching, finally found this thread!
I’m brand spanking new to HA… I set up my phone, and the rest of my family’s phones with HA, and everything was going smoothly. Everything was reporting properly as F. Then, 2 or so hours ago, I noticed one of the devices was showing it was 33F and I wondered if somehow, they had left their phone in the fridge… went to go check on them, and they were actively using their phone, in their hand… Thought it was strange… My phone, and everyone else’s were reporting just fine.
Then, 10-20 minutes later, I glance up and see MY phone is -2.9F… I’m all “WTF?!” but my phone didn’t feel ‘freezing’ at all… that’s when I noticed everyone else’s phones were now all reporting between 20-30F… then it hit me… it was reporting in C instead… I checked my phone’s sensors and suuuure enough its showing as 32C… not sure why HA was reporting it as -2.9, but hey, its reporting everyone in the wrong degrees now anyway, so what’s one more oddity!
But yea, this just hit me, and I have no idea why its doing it. The phone sensors were originally showing as F within the phone app (where you get to manage all the sensor access). Now, its reporting it as C. Not sure why it suddenly switched from reporting as F to C, but it appears that the phone app may be the cause, in my opinion. HA is seemingly just taking whatever the HA Phone App is giving it, and directly displaying it, no conversion or anything. Whatever its given, its showing. So if its given 32, its displaying 32 and slapping the Global F onto it…
REALLY hope someone somewhere has some sorta solution to this. and extremely hoping it is not a phone app issue… cause if it is… welp, there goes any real hope of that being patched up any time soon.
