Transición de Echos a HomePods

Estoy buscando consejos sobre la forma más sencilla y limpia de cambiar de echo a HomePods con mi configuración HA. Tengo algunos mini HomePods y planeo obtener más este mes, pero he estado usando Echoes durante años hasta ahora. Eventualmente, me gustaría configurar TTS como lo hice con los ecos, pero mi primera prioridad es que Siri reconozca todas las luces y todo lo demás que tengo a través de HA. Entre luces y sensores, actualmente tengo poco más de 100 dispositivos Zigbee conectados a través de ZHA. Recientemente descargué la aplicación Apple Home nuevamente para configurar los HomePods, pero no tengo nada más en este momento. Dudé en bromear y traté de cambiar las cosas porque el factor de aprobación de la esposa cae significativamente si los asistentes de voz no funcionan. ¡Cualquier consejo sobre formas más limpias y menos disruptivas de mover cosas será muy apreciado!

As every of your HomeKit devices will poll devices for their status you should really evaluate if you need those 100 devices to be exposed to HomeKit individually. Try grouping blinds, lights or motion sensors and exposing them as a group rather than individual entities. Otherwise your setup may (or may not) become a bit slow.
Besides that I have yet to find a TTS solution for HomePod that works reliably enough for my needs. If you find one please let me know.

As for implementation I would also recommend the integrated HomeKit Bridge as it works quite reliably.

I used the HomeKit integration and it “just worked” – you might even be able to do that alongside having the echos so there’s no downtime. If it doesn’t work you can uninstall the HomeKit integration and it shouldn’t mess with your devices. It should be as simple as that but I don’t have any echos so didn’t need to worry about that.

Several great comments in here already. To get started use the Homekit (bridge) integration to expose your HA devices to Homekit. You don’t have to stop Alexa at all, so you can ask Siri first and ask Alexa as a fallback, phasing out Echos once Siri is good enough.

Use the implicit include pattern as a way to control what HomeKit looks like. Keep Homekit basic by only exposing what you need to control and in the way you actually control it. Examples:
– The 5 bulb entities in a single fixture become a single homekit bulb accessory.
– Scenes become a HK switch accessory so you don’t have to rebuild scenes in HK.
– No sensors (unless you ask Alexa about them)

My guess would be to use Homekit Bridge to get all your stuff into Apple Home.

If you’ve got 100 Zigbee devices, I would encourage you to export them via HomeKit, but then have some input_booleans for doing mass operations. For example, I have an input_boolean that represents all of the Insteon lights in the house. I put that in a «Good Night» scene in «Home» and then Home Assistant has an automation that turns everything off when that switch goes off, rather than putting 100 devices into a HomeKit scene, which can be a pain in the ass, and is also slower to execute. Whenever a single Insteon light goes on, HA throws that switch to on.
Generally speaking, the Siri functions for turning on/off lights in a room or area work well.

Hey! I just had a similar situation yesterday. I have home assistant and just got a Hue light because my girlfriend wanted to be able to turn it off when we watch tv at certain times. So yeah she could open the HA app and turn it off (haven’t automated anything with it yet), but that’s not as quick. So I used my HomeKit bridge and ported it over to the Home app and it kept my proper name from HA and Siri works on it like a charm. Obviously more devices is a lot more opportunities for things to go wrong, but in my case it worked perfectly. I also have a WeMo switch that was ported into apple Home and works flawlessly too.

One thing I don’t think anyone has mentioned yet is that each HomeKit bridge only supports 150 devices each. The good news is that you can have multiple bridges on different ports if you set it up via YAML (which you really should do if you have a lot of devices).

The approach I’ve taken is that if it can be natively integrated into HomeKit, great! Stuff like Philips Hue and Nanoleafs don’t take up unnecessary devices on the HomeKit bridge, counting towards that 150 device limit, and their state is still correctly reflected in HA. Stuff like non-HomeKit devices (Tuya, Aqara) I then integrate through HomeKit, so they can be accessed through the Home app.

Thank you everyone for the advice! This was certainly a case of me over complicating it in my head. Using the HomeKit integration everything went smoothly and worked well!
