Anyone able to turn their lights on via HomeKit? Under "new automation" garage door is not listed. For me the whole point is turning on the appropriate lights when my wife opens the garage door.
For any trigger that could grant access to you home, homekit requires you to unlock your phone and allow the action. It’s a security function to prevent accidental or unauthorized access based on automatic triggers (i.e. some one steals your phone and can open your house, or you go for a neighbourhood walk and inadvertently unlock your front door because of geofencing).
@RS - Thanks. I suspected it was something like that. I just did not see (or hear) the security alert. I'll pay more attention next time. Pretty much just curious to see if the automation scene works for the garage door. I will probably disable it once my curiosity is satisfied. :-) I have an IFTTT geofence recipe that works, but it just turns on some lights.
