    My garage automation to close and open upon leaving and arrival keeps asking if i want to run is annoying and defeats the purpose of what i want to do. I heard there is a way to "trick" it using another home kit based item but im not sure which or what. There was mention of a home bridge or something. Can someone shed light on this and if you know how to do it whats the cheapest way to do it? I hope i make sense. Thanks!

    I had a similar problem and had to create a work around with another accessory. I have a lightbulb in my closet that only turns on when I arrive home, and then the garage is set to open when that light turns on.
