Homebridge-edomoticz plugin with Apple TV 4 as hub

Post by jvbussel » Thursday 15 September 2016 21:50

If have read about it earlier. Having the Apple TV 4 as the hub.

With the arrival of tvos 10 I wanted to configure it as the hub instead of an iPad.

But I cannot find it in tvos 10. Did Apple leave out this function last minute?

There is nothing to find. Just upgrading the TVos is sufficient. In the HomeApp you can see that the app is connected to the AppleTV.

maybe I do not understand how it works.

When launching the home app on the iPad and searching for accessoires I can configre the iPad as the hub in the configuration setting.

My assumption was to launch a simluar app on the Apple TV and mark it as the hub.

Apperently it is not the case. But do not understand how the Apple TV gets the accessoires and is to be marked as the hub.

It uses your icloud account to detect things.

Ok, configure it on the iPad. Not marking the iPad as hub. In that case the
Apple TV becomes automatically my hub @home.

And of course signing on with the same CloudId on iPad and Apple TV 4
