This might be my first and only post in this community. I saw the keynote and was quite happy as I have many Aqara devices but also others which would be great to be connected. Especially as the Aqara hubs are not really easy to control…
I tried to install my devices (already more than 60) and had to realise that Homey doesn’t want to accept my light switches…in the beginning it worked, now it doesn’t. Well…you could say it is a beta…
But it started already stupidly…I bought the bridge and I couldn’t operate it (because I was still waiting for the beta invitation). Why does someone need to wait for the beta invitation if he had already spend money on the bridge?
After a few days I got it. Installation of the bridge and some sensors - worked so far nicely. Even one cable connected light switch from Aqara and a wireless I could connect. But the flows were not working. So I tried differently - deinstalled the switches - but then they couldn’t be connected again. I read here some of the issues and the solutions - so I tried to copy those. Still it didn’t solve my issue. So the last try was to start totally from zero. I erased my home-setup.
Guess what happened now! Homey App asks for my beta invitation code…but that one is no longer valid.
I think these are enough signs for me to finally conclude: Homey Bridge is nothing for me. Also some devices are only usable on Homey Pro…not the bridge.
Next challenge is how to get in contact with the “service desk” - I can return the bridge…but it is a riddle who I have to contact - and how.
