Neo Coolcam window/door sensor shows as humidity sensor in HomeKit

My Neo Coolcam door sensors show in HomeKit as humidity sensors. All eight of them. There’s no way it seems I can influence that.

I am aware the HomeKit integration is still experimental. Maybe that’s why?!


What capabilities do the devices have? You can find them here: Homey Developer Tools

Here is an example for one of them:

I see that the HomeKit experiment exports all devices with class “sensor” as humidity sensors :man_facepalming:t3: I doubt this will change in the near future, the experiment only exists so Athom can say that Homey works with “Apple”.

I would suggest using my HomeKitty app instead of the experiment.


Thank you, Robert.
It works in HomeKitty
