Eachen Garage accessory does not open from the main page

See original GitHub issue

What issue do you have? Please be as thorough and explicit as possible.

Since the addition of the door sensor accessory for the Eachen garage door, I cannot just tap on the garage door on the devices page on homekit app, when clicked it opens the accesory for you to toggle the switch, the functionality you only get when you force tap the accessory in homekit.


Perhaps we need to option to display the door and sensor as a seperate accesory

Details of your setup.

  • Do you use (1) Homebridge (+ config-ui), (2) Homebridge (CLI) or (3) HOOBS?

  • Which platform do you run Homebridge/HOOBS on (e.g. Raspberry Pi/Windows/HOOBS Box)? Please also mention your version of Node.js/NPM if known.
