Action Group won’t stay on

Our new Sleep Number bed just arrived. I’m using the SleepyIQ plugin to control it from within Indigo.

Since there’s no HomeKit support, I wanted to add it myself through Homebridge.

I set up an Action group that changes the bed position to Watch TV and another Action Group that sets the bed to Lay Flat.

Then I added a Virtual on/off Device that sets on Action Group for On and the other for Off.

Then added that Virtual Device to HomeKit.

It works for “on” but won’t stay on. I press it, it switches the bed to position 1, but then turns off in the Home app, so I can’t turn it “off” to go back to the other position.

Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Action Group won’t stay on

You either need to add a status variable and update the variable in each of the action groups, or add an action to each group to actually turn the device on/off using the Set Virtual On/Off Device State action.

Virtual On/Off devices don't automatically maintain their state, you have to do it yourself in the action groups.
