I have used pimatic-hap for some time but it was not very stable for me (will try the latest version as soon as possible as I think it got much better). When I was having the problems I was wondering how the database/device management works.
For managing it on the iPhone I used EVE.
Problems I had:
- After removing one sensor in the eve app I was not able to get it back.
- After removing the device I was not able to connect again.
I was associating all the switches/sensors with rooms and icons which all is lost after deleting and re adding the pimatic-hap bridge.
How are freshly added devices communicated to the bridge? Can they just appear or is there a kind of resync mechanism?
