In Apple Home, I have managed my room names, bulb names, and room to bulb associations. I have everything set perfectly in Apple Home.
After making changes in Apple Home, whenever I (or someone else on the network) open the Hue app, it shows an orange “!” and CLAIMS the Apple Home settings are outdated, which is a totally inaccurate and misleading description (which matters in just a moment)
If you click Update, what it does is erase the latest Apple Home settings, and replaces them with the older Hue settings. There’s no way for this to intelligently determine WHICH settings are newer, and import those settings as needed.
Worse, the “Update” is presented as an orange “!” which continually invites users to press it. Which destroys the bulb:room pairing I created in Apple Home. (This is tragic because it’s way easier to reassign bulbs in rooms using Apple Home than it is in Hue).
