HomeKit ignoring Insteon Preset Dim Settings


I was unable to find this in search, so apologies if it's a duplicate.

Updated for clarity:

When I use a scene created in HomeKit, either the Insteon dimmer or Home Bridge may or may not activate the Insteon dimmers to the preset dim levels. Sometimes it may respond correctly, others times all lights may go to 100%, other times some lights in the scene will dim correctly while others go to 100%.

When I use Siri to activate a dimmer and tell it to "dim device to X%", sometimes the light dims to X% and other times it will go to 100% on the first request, and actually dim correctly on the second attempt.

Thanks for letting me know if there's anything I'm missing either in HomeKit, HomeKit Bridge, or Indigo.

Bumping this one too...

When I tell Siri to set the brightness of a light it follows through and then the light will then goto 100%:

Code: Select all

   Sent INSTEON                    "Bar Lights" on to 50
      Sent INSTEON                    "Bar Lights" on to 100

I think this has to do with the default level of the insteon device. I tested by setting the default level of one of my devices to 33% and then (with the light off, told Siri to 70% :

Code: Select all
Sent INSTEON                   Lou's Lamp" on to 70
   Sent INSTEON                    "Lou's Lamp" on to 33

Is this known and expected behavior or do I need to change something?
