Problems with Eero Pro 6, Wemo plug and HomeKit

Anyone having this issue with Wemo plugs being able to Not being able to connect to HomeKit ?

I use to have an Eero Pro and I was able to add the plugs via the wemo app and then to Homekit. 
With Eero Pro 6, I'm able to add the plugs via the wemo app but impossible to add them to Homekit. I get an error saying accessory was not found. I have 5 plugs like that. 

Thanks

  • I noticed that if I restart my eero pro 6, I can add my wemo plug via the app and the add it to Homekit successfully. For each plug, I have to restart my eero in order to set it up with homekit. 
    can someone at eero take a look at this problem?

  • Sometimes devices will need to be on an exclusive 2.4ghz network during the initial setup process to work correctly, don’t know if it also need it during HomeKit setup (I run Alexa), but I would assume so since HomeKit is a single-step add devices (instead of Alexa’s 3-4 steps).

     

    To temporarily disable 5ghz network (15min at a time), go to Settings > Troubleshoot > My device won’t connect > my device is 2.4ghz only

     

    the previous poster having ability to setup after router/network restart is likely related to this, since the 2.4ghz network comes online much faster than 5ghz on restart.
