Home app says update available, Fibaro app says otherwise

Question

My Home app recently popped up and said there are two firmware updates available. Status details says “update the firmware for 2 accessories in the “Fibaro for HomeKit Devices” app and gives me a link to open the Fibaro app. But when I’m in the Fibaro app I don’t see anything indicating available updates. My device is a flood sensor. Checking accessory details there also doesn’t give me an update option.

No, Fibaro says Apple's baby....Apple says Fibaro's baby....perfect....can't be so complicated to quickly change the version checking coding in a small single App at Fibaro ...cu, macman (and I think it's Fibaro business, because it first appeared after the last Fibaro Home app update)

    Yeah, this is surprising to me too. It happened right after an app update. I honestly thought this was going to be a quick fix and we'd have already seen an update by now.

    The issue has been fixed and the Apple Home app doesn't show the update notification anymore.

     

    Cheers! : )

    Mine is still showing updates needed.  Any hints on how to force a cleanup now that a fix is in place? 

     

    Thanks

    There is no "clear cache" button in HomeKit so I've just restarted the phone and showed up at my house.

     

    I believe it won't fix via remote connection. So you should get in range of those devices.

    I have rebooted all my iOS devices which are linked to HomeKit and HomeKit Hub (Apple TV 4th Gen) has also been rebooted. Still the 'Updates Available' shows up.

    @chaicka, since you were rebooting Apple TV, I assume you were near those devices that need the update? Or some other person at home made the reboot?

    Yes, I am near those Fibaro HomeKit devices when rebooting each iOS device and Apple TV.

    @I.Srodka

     

    Been trying various methods and it seems the Fibaro HomeKit Single Switch is the only device still getting prompted in Home app about firmware update available. Is there any other methods to try out without having to factory reset it?

    Hello @chaicka,

     

    We will most likely replace your unit. Contact me via PM and I will send you the details.
