    Hi Maximillian,

    I've made notes on your comments and we will implement changes based on as many of them as possible as quickly as possible. Best practice is to share access because notifications come in with the username attached to them. It gets confusing when your wife comes home and it says you opened the door.

    The reason shared access users don't have the same permissions is because generally you only want one person setting Night Mode and other automations. For example, if you believe Night Mode is set to start at 10PM because that's what you set it for, and she changes it to 8PM - you're out working in the garage and the door starts closing on you at 8:05PM you immediately think there's something wrong with the system.

    So one administrator of the device keeps things straight. Of course, you can always share your login details with your family and they can all log in as you - just be prepared for potential confusion and setting changes.

    Tailwind not only works with Siri but it also works with HomeKit. If you update your firmware to V9.95 (the latest version) our system will email you your HomeKit setup code (which can also be found in the device settings screen in the app). Once you set it up in Apple Home you can use all the usual Apple Home automations and Siri. You can also set up Siri Shortcuts in the shortcuts app if you wish.

    I'm not entirely sure why your wife would be getting a permissions error. If you can get a screenshot of it and send it to one of our team members (or me) will have a look at it for you.
