To give more feedback and description on what is happening I think im having a disconnect between apple HomeKit and the hub. While it is recognizing devices in HomeKit as well as the hub, the automations I set up for the switch and button presses on the zooz switch aren't executing at all.
Here are steps I took:
plugged in hub and went through setup. completed nicely.
added the zooz z-wave switch device and set that up. works. the led colors that I edited all work right so its definitely connected to hubitat hub and working with zwave.
I then added the HomeKit hub integration and activated it.
I then check marked per some troubleshooting I read on here enable "Relaxed home hub pairing security".
I then parted everything into HomeKit no issue, saw it all and read it all.
I programmed 1 automation for the physical installed switch to play music in bathroom when pressed
I then programmed 1 automation for a dummy switch to activate some shades when turned on.
tested the first automation twice and worked.
tested dummy switch and didnt work then went back to the physical switch again and didnt work.
now nothing works. something seems disconnected in communication with HomeKit and the hub??
And yes I also made sure relaxed security was checked. To be even more specific:
the zooz switch I purchased is the one with a main larger button on top that are for the load, then 4 more squares below that when clicked should activate a scene in HomeKit. When I press the physical switches the programming isn't executing.
the virtual switch I programmed an automation that when I turn on that switch in the apple home app, that it will trigger a scene and that isn't executing when turned on.
Im confused what do you mean by this? forget the virtual switch for minute, the zooz gen32 switch should be working and its not executing the commands that I set up in HomeKit once it was recognized. The point of the virtual switch is completely separate from the physical one. even after deleting the virtual one the zooz isn't executing the scene assigned in HomeKit.
I deleted the virtual switch... to me the zooz switch is more important for now. The whole reason I went down this road with zooz and now hubitat is to be able to have physical buttons on my switch to execute some HomeKit scenes I have programmed for the bathroom. The zooz switch is z-wave and this hubitat hub is the only way I found to connect zwave to HomeKit.
Really frustrated as to why it isn't working for me like it should here.
You don't. I was asking if it was on there. If you are using the zooz drivers, you could probably add that attribute to the driver (I don't program in groovy so I'm not sure what lines would have to go in). I run all Lutron Caseta so it all just works,.
I have tried to restart HomeKit integration too and even the nuclear option and re-added the hub all together from scratch. just nothing seems to solve this mystery. It worked two times and nothing since.
Iv been messing around with all this stuff the last few days. I’m getting lost in your responses. Can we back up just a touch…
1 Are all of your devices Z Wave and/or Zigbee?
When looking inside the HomeKit integration in Hubitat, are your devices listed under “button”, or “switch”, or “dimmer?”
You mention Zooz scene controller button performing actions. Is your intent to have Hubitat control those actions and only have HomeKit act as another way to push the button? Or, are you expecting HomeKit to handle the action between the Zooz button and the end device?
Are you using a home-pod or Apple TV as your HomeKit hub?
