    I have an extensive HomeKit setup with about 10 rooms and 50 devices. I access it on 2 iPads and 1 iPhone. The Wallpapers and names of the rooms do not sync across the devices. If I create a room, it propagates across devices, but when I add a Wallpaper or change the name it does not propagate these changes across the devices. The devices and their statuses do propagate just fine.

    I went to the Genius Bar and they looked at it and thought perhaps it was a bug, but weren't sure -- thought it might be fixed in iOS 11.

    Anyone else have any experience here with this?

    Thanks.

    We have a large number of HK devices -- Lutron, Eve, Ecobee, Schlage. We have 2 iPads and 2 iPhones running latest versions.

    Wallpaper - does not sync. I don't think it's designed to do that.
    Rooms - For us, does sync.

    If you sign out and sign back in it may resolve the issue - or not. Since your devices sync - rooms should too.

    Wallpapers do not sync.

    Rooms (and names), Favorites, device names, and device order all sync for me.

    I see the same thing - rooms, devices, automations all sync, but wallpaper does not. Hopefully they do include wallpaper as part of the syncing in the future.
