Are they gonna fix HomeKit? It's still broken for me. I am spending this weekend starting over from scratch because my basement TV now gets turned on if I ask to turn on my third story bedroom.

Half my kitchen lights are labeled correctly as Kitchen, but turn on when I ask to turn on the Den.

HomeKit can't make up its mind if I have an Ecobee thermostat or not, despite the thermostat being in Home App. Asking Siri five times to change the temperature is annoying, and even more frustrating is having to take five minutes to go up and down the stairs to manually change the temp. Not something a cripple wants to have to do after spending money on smart devices for convenience. It's annoying to have to crutch up and down the stairs. The Home App won't let me change anything, I'll set it to 64 H and it'll not change anything. Ecobee App crashes when I open it, working on that with Ecobee.

Also, I do not have an Automation for arriving home, but I get a random Billboard Top 20 that plays whenever I get home.
Not only do I not like Taylor Swift, I would use her CDs at a skeet shoot.

And lastly, Siri keeps asking me to unlock my iPhone again to tell me what time it is, or what the weather is. I'm not asking for much here, folks.
