Thursday(19-12), Homey is acting weird, flows do not work and I can’t access my flows on my iphone app anymore. I am investigating what is going on
Frydag(20-12) after a night PTP and with great help off the community Homey still does not work. 15:30 Have tried everything and decide to give Athom a call for help. Mmmm I can’t find a telephone number, I do find a form to request Athom’s help. Advice from Athom is to make a diagnostic report and add the diagnostics number in the request. I directly get a email that it will take up to two days before they can react. But because it is holiday time it can take longer.
Ouch that hurts, I immediately realized that this wasn’t the right moment to have Homey stuck, I also realize that the WAF can get me in trouble.
I immediately take precautions. I look into drawer and find a good old analogue pen and something weird cald a “Sticky Note”. After some googeling I found out how to use it. On every door I stick a note with the following text; “Homey has died, for lights on, push the button”.
Saturday(21/12) As soon as I am awake i think off yesterday and my dead Homey. My girlfriend is also awake. She looks a bit grumpy. Oh oh the WAF is already declining. After making breadfast I decide to ad a remark to the Sticky Notes. “ For lights off also push the button.
After explaining my girlfriend how to get the Music on, and explaining that she has to make herself a choice which radio station she wants to listen to i go to my kids to tell them the bad news.
In the evening my daughter shouts really upset that the television is not working. After explaining how the AB works and explaining how to group and ungroup the Sonos boxes she starts a little grumpy watching TV.
Sunday(22-12) Oke first I make a little tour for the lights. I also have to kneel to get the Christmas light on🙈. The lights in my garden are still on, ouch! How did I live without Homey?
Monday(23-12) A littke bit shaken I wake up. Another day without my best friend. HOW To i think. How to survice the next days.How much did Homey cost. How long ago did I buy Homey. Mmmm 2 years and 2 months ago for 299,-.
Lot off money. What if…
As nothing works in my house i start to rethink. For this moment i walk to the mailbox. Shh… is is completely full. Realizing that I don’t get a notice when it is full and don’t get remembered by the lights turning purple.
I am making some little workarounds. Philips Hue lights upstairs are working again with the Philips Hue app and the Hub.
Maybe I have to do this also in my hallway, but how to manage that with the door sensors? Tomorrow i will re-think that. For now just trying to get used to my “Homey alone” Christmas weekend.
Thumbs up, maybe Athom will contact me tomorrow, maybe with a solution. Remembers me instantly about a nice Spotify number” Imagination with “It’s just a illusion” But how to get that on Sonos? Ok, tomorrow I will try to get that also done.
