    HomeKit automations require a supported Apple device to act as the Home Hub. See their support article here: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT207057

    Thanks for the reply! I have two Apple TV gen 4 devices and the Home app shows one as active and one as standby. I’m able to view my camera via the Home app when away from home, so they seem to be working as hubs correctly from what I can tell. What’s interesting, maybe, is that it will let me create automations based on people arriving, people leaving, or time of day - but not based on “a sensor detects something”. Thanks!

    I'm also trying to get the Circle motion sensor to trigger a homekit automation. Simple one for now, turn on one of the LIFX bulbs. No luck.

     

    Using apple iPad as a home hub.

     

    Kevin - have you got the people arriving or leaving automation to work? I am having difficulty with it detecting when i leave and do something or arrive.

    Same story here, even if logi cam detects motion and sends out an immediate notification, the apple homekit does not seem to receive a trigger for the automation flow to work. The logi cam motion is selectable and works in homekit app test modus. I tried another motion sensor (fibaro) and this trigger works flawless in homekit. Btw I use apple tv4 as a hub.
