Early access is now available to those interested.

Seems we need to setup our devices again when using the new app? Is that right? Just want to be sure it’s not changing anything else, as I run Homebridge and want to be sure I don’t need to change the device IDs/Access Token in the config.json?

Thanks.

I noticed the same thing too. However, I simply quit the app - make sure you bring up the App Switcher and swipe up to completely quit and close the App, and relaunch it again. The 2nd time I launched it the App simply picks up my Garadget and I didn’t have to set it up again.

I did however, noticed the Authentication option/setting seemed a bit flaky. I’ve set mine to use Face ID and to always ask for authentication, but sometimes is does and sometimes it doesn’t appear to ask for authentication…

Anyone noticed this re the Face ID authentication?

Make sure you click on “Existing Account” in initial screen. The default form is for new account creation.

The auth is not required if you just logged in or if you have already authorized within the same session. If app becomes inactive then you will be asked to re-authorize upon return or for first action depending on the mode you selected.

Well I’m in now, seems exiting and coming back did the trick. I did do the existing account part, but after entering my creds it took me to setup. Maybe I’m mistaken? Anyhow, all is good now. Thanks! Will send feedback as a I find it!

What does this refer to? Is this additional sensor data, and if so will this be available via MQTT?

Those values are already available in MQTT. See sensor and bright parameters in status request:
