1. Wi-Fi setup Hotspot not appearing

It's an issue with stock firmware (v2.0.3) on a small number of devices Please flash the firmware again via USB following this guide. Use the latest release. (Flashing v2.0.3 over v2.0.3 again will solve the issue.)

2. Text fields for labels not appearing in Home Assistant

It's only supported in Home Assistant 2022.12 and later. Please update Home Assistant.

3. Long Wi-Fi reaction time

The reaction time depends heavily on your Wi-Fi network. In congested networks or if the signal is weak where Home Buttons is installed, reaction time will be longer.

Reaction time is also longer on WPA3 due to additional encryption compared to WPA2.

You can considerably decrease the reaction time by setting up static IP for your Home Buttons.

The expected average values for reaction time are:

  • WPA2 static IP: 0.5 s
  • WPA2 DHCP: 1 s
  • WPA3 static IP: 1.8 s
  • WPA3 DHCP: 2.7 s
