HomeKit & Leviton Light Switch
When using my Amplifi with Leviton light switches & Apple's HomeKit the switch constantly loose connection. I switched back to my old Apple AirPort routers and the problem is resolved. I spoke to Leviton and they said it was a known problem with Amplifi routers. Anyone else having this problem?
My whole home is a Apple Homekit Ecosystem, but I do not have any Leviton switches. I have Lutron Caseta and iDevices light switches and they never loose connection.
Same issue I am having with my Leviton Apple HomeKit Dimmer switches now that I have an AmplifiHD Router. Did you ever find a solution to the issue? Does AmplifiHD acknowledge they are the issue and have any intention on fixing the issue?
Any other updates on this? Anybody else having these issues and found a fix?
I have been working with Amplifi support for at least 6 months on this. Or, to be more exact, I have been complaining and sending them tons of data, and they can't seem to find an answer. For me it is a chamberlain garage door opener. Works fine with an old D-Link (or any other AP) but with Amplifi it is constantly going offline.
Here is an example from the console:
Powered Time 9 days, 6 hours, 37 minutes, 19 seconds
Internet Connected No
Router Connections Since Powerup 1
Internet Connections Since Powerup 1807
Basically it has been running for the past 9 days, dropping the connection about 200 times a day. Normally you have 1-2 drops per day with a standard AP/router.
Pretty annoying that the only way to fix it is to set up a separate AP with a separate network SSID.
Oh, and you can use separate SSIDs for the Amplifi and this will fix the issue. However, when you have 2 units like me, you end up with 4 SSIDs and the handoff no longer works, so the solution is a non-starter.
@john-fruehe which model is your garage door opener?
I'm still having this problem. Reported it to Leviton, and they told me the same line —that they're working with Amplifi for a solution. It's incredibly frustrating to see that your original post was two years ago.
@rick-stawarz I am not aware of any employees from Leviton working with us for a solution. I would like to review this with you and try to find a solution, can you describe your situation for me in detail so I know whats happening?
