Yes it needs a re-programming of the chipset on Athoms side. Thats why I requested working via the Brel Home Hub instead as a third party device. Maybe in the future it will connect directly to Homey but I guess once this Homey App is done they checked it off their list. But who knows!
Athom and Brel can’t agree on who needs to change their game to work with eachother. So this is the best they can do.
