Hopefully most of you have seen the latest update information for your hub. My harmony updated by itself to latest 4.15.250 and was not reachable by Hassio. The below steps seemed promising but didn’t work for me. I have deleted the Android App data and cache, reinstalled the app and even restarted my hubs and home network. I am still unable to get Hassio to find my hubs. Please share if you are able to get the below to work for you. Thank you.

Update to accessing Harmony Hub’s local API via XMPP
I am here with an update regarding Harmony XMPP access.
Back in December 2018, Harmony released a firmware update that addressed several security vulnerabilities - including disabling access to the Hub’s local API via XMPP. After hearing the frustrations from some members of our community, we paused on our firmware update while we assessed the situation. An optional firmware, version 4.15.210, was then created and uploaded onto a MyHarmony tool that allowed for manual installation. This version allowed access to XMPP only for those that wanted it and understood the potential risks of the use of the option. Ultimately we decided to continue this support and make this access available as an opt-in option for firmware versions going forward.
We’re pleased to announce that beginning with firmware version 4.15.250 and Harmony app version 5.6 for iOS and Android, the option to enable XMPP can now be found in the mobile app settings. We plan to roll out this new firmware starting this Friday, February 15, 2019.
Note: See this article on how to check which firmware version you are on - https://support.myharmony.com/how-to-update-your-firmware
By default, Harmony firmware will keep XMPP disabled. For those of you already using the special firmware version 4.15.210 with XMPP access, when your hub upgrades to 4.15.250, you can easily re-enable it by:
• Perform a sync from your LCD screen based Harmony remote, by going to Menu > Settings > Sync Remote, or
• From your Harmony app, go to: Menu > Harmony Setup > Add/Edit Devices & Activities > Remote & Hub > Enable XMPP
You will not need to use the cumbersome firmware update process as you did in December. If you experience any issues, please let us know. Going forward, future firmware updates will respect your current setting, so this should be a one-time action on your part. Should you encounter any issues, please let us know here.
