Obviously you were not one of the victims of iOS 16.2 HomeKit "New Architecture". I and many users are locked out of HomeKit with no fix yet from Apple. If HomeKit ever works again this looks like a terrific app.

Sorry to hear you’ve been impacted by the HomeKit upgrade issue. I noticed some negative reports a few weeks ago and mentioned it in the newsletter. Luckily I was able to hold off. Hope Apple resolved this asap, must be very frustrating.
