HomeKit reaction to doorbell press and not just motion detection

Post by DerekErb »

Currently the Netatmo Doorbell is seen by HomeKit as a motion sensor. The only automation events we can attach to the device are reactions to motion detection.

The only way I've seen, or head of, to react to an actual press of the doorbell is by using a third-party app, such as Eve, which allows reaction to single press, double press and long press. Unfortunately these apps only allow a limited type of reactions, specifically calling HomeKit "scenes" and not full HomeKit automations including shortcuts.

Feature request: make the Doorbell button events visible to HomeKit.

Thanks
