    Anyone else having any issues with HomeKit after the update? I have an ecobee3 that stopped working in HomeKit after the update. Tried deleting and adding the thermostat back in but it cannot be found. Very frustrating worked fine before the update.

    No issue on any of our HomeKit devices here (both local and remote) from several manufacturers (August, Hue, Koogeek, Garage door, etc).

    You have a HomeKit garage door opener? Which one?

    Homemade. It's a standard garage door opener, but I wired it into a relay and connected that to a Raspberry Pi and setup HAP-NodeJS. Extremely reliable, and very cost-effective. HAP-NodeJS even sends notifications from the sensor so HomeKit will send a notification if the door is opened outside of Siri (which is rare now, because it's too cool).

    There's probably some good YouTube videos if interested. More than happy to share the code I ended up writing too, and wiring should be pretty trivial.

    You're welcome! Good luck if you go forward with it! It's worth it to bring your garage door into your automation routine.

    I have issues where my Insteon devices show up as "no response" in the control menu (when you swipe up from bottom of phone). Rebooted the Insteon and it seems to be working again.

    My Philips hue lights stopped working with HomeKit after 10.3, even though my phone could communicate fine through the hue app. I had to blow away all my HomeKit settings and start from scratch and even then it seemed to refuse to work for several days. Has been better for the last bit at least.

    i will say it was frustrating having people on here tell me "it must be your router" when the issue was very isolated to HomeKit after 10.3.

    Sounds really cool, and more than I am ready to do for myself so I'm waiting until June and taking the lazy route. Chamberlin is scheduled to release their HomeKit controller for standard openers. I do however wish I had what it took to make my own gear.
