Thank you for clarifying this! :slight_smile: Short answer then is that I jumped on the wrong horse ha ha (I was sure Airtag would work, so I didn’t really check)… Well, any suggestions for best beacon (will only be used for Home/Away presence) in respect to size and price (and battery life)?

Thanks!

Feasycom? Pls search this topic for it.
Seen at Ali’s for around €22

@Koktail I try your app on my new HP2023 and it don’t work (official 2.3.2 and test 2.3.5 versions) :

I have 2 Nut mini, that works like a charm with 2.3.2 on HP2019
This one is detected when I “add” it to HP2023
but the status is never updated :

Thanks

Is your Homey 23 firmware higher than xxx.rc.40?

Yes it’s the rc62

Below are the Ble updates in the firmwares, so I suggest you inform Athom also about this issue.

v10.0.0-rc.40

Bluetooth LE

  • Improved stability.
  • Added support for notifications.
  • Added support for disconnect events.

v10.0.0-rc.37

Bluetooth

  • Added preliminary support for ManagerBLE.
    Note: BLECharacteristic.subscribeToNotifications is not yet available.
    Note: disconnect events are not yet sent to the app.

v10.0.0-rc.2

  • Improved the Bluetooth Advertisements interval.

I have exactly the same issue, I connected my 3 beacons (2x tile, 1x Ali-express), using those for years already on Homey Pro 2019 (and 2016), but they won’t get detected at all:

The app does not work like on the HP16 and HP19 because the BLE on the HP23 is not stable yet.

I hope / let’s hope it will not take them this time…2 years or so ?
