I have updated my lock to 2.8.1 and have bridge firmware 1.17.0. But batteryChargeState is not available in the API. This is the result of the list endpoint and it’s also not available in the lockState endpoint. Like some others I also had the issue where the battery type was not detected correctly.
seems to be the key here, at least partially.
After doing this, the battery indicator appeared on my son’s home.app, his iPhone is a guest in my home.
On my iPhone which is linked to the Homekit account --> nothing, no battery indicator.
Can anyone tell me how to install this beta?
I requested the beta functionality with lock it and got response from nuki but I dont know how to install a beta? It doesnt tell me that there is a beta available…
With the newest Nuki iOS App Beta (APP UPDATE: Nuki iOS App 2.6.8-Beta) in the Battery report (tap 7 times on the info text below the “Automatically” switch to get it) the battery in % value is also shown.
@PharaDos In the Android App the critical value in the (hidden) battery report is shown as “yes” with the new Smart Lock Beta firmware due to a bug which will be fixed in one of the next updates. Please ignore it and only check the “official” Battery state on top when testing for now.
I realized only with the latest two upgrades to newer SL Beta versions that the upgrade mechanism changed - no need anymore to hold the button on the SL and no restart of the lock. The latter was always a pain for me, because my SL is fixed to turn only 360 degree as the 360-720 degree turn is more difficult due to additional hooks are locking the door; so I had to open the door everytime when upgrading the SL firmware, to avoid stress on the SL.
In summary: I am not sure if this update procedure has been changed in the app or in the SL, but for me it is a big improvement.
After the update to 2.8.3 the Nuki is almost useless. It senses the door to be locked by just turning few degrees and unlocked but turning few degrees. The 720 degree lock setting is not working anymore. In brief the Nuki Smart Lock is not locking anymore.
