Slow Homekit

  • August 29, 2018 at 10:25 #25377


    I have HomeKit working with 5 thermostats, however, most of the time its very slow to update in the app and about 70% just gives me the no response on the devices. Does anyone know if there is a way to optimise this?

    I’m presuming that Homekit talks to the lightwaverf cloud site rather than the link plus itself.

    You wouldn’t want a battery operated device firing off on a schedule so I would imagine this is done when there is a change in temperature of a certain amount, rather than as a refresh.

    The only refresh I know of is where you pull down on the app display which causes a refresh to happen. I have no idea if this requests info from the thermostat.

    Further to this there is an auto refresh button on the PC manager in the heating section. Again I have no idea if that is a generic command or if it is just for viewing the manager data.
