Wemo switches


#1

Got a quick question, has anybody had trouble getting your Wemo switches to show up in the HomeKit component? After upgrading to 86.4 I can’t seem to get them to show up. They are fine in the HA UI?

Thanks!


#2

All my Wemo devices are currently missing from HomeKit too! I’m prepared to turn back on my homebridge instance as I’ve never had an issue with getting them to HomeKit using homebridge.

I got them back!

The newest IO 86.4 must be a bit slower to load components then previous release.
This worked for me.

configuration.yaml

homekit:
  auto_start: false
  filter:
    include_entities: !include include_entities.yaml 

automation.yaml

- alias: 'Start HomeKit'
  trigger:
  - event: start
    platform: homeassistant
  condition: []
  action:
  - delay: 00:05  # Waits 5 minutes
  - service: homekit.start

This allows the system to fully start before loading homekit. I hope this helps you!

I appreciate your response! I still struggled, I eventually found out that I had to go in and delete the .homekit.state file from the configuration folder and viola! Everything showed backed up. Now sure what happened here, but the update did break me.

Glad you got it working! :slight_smile:
