So, you know how if you enable Siri to “listen” for alarm like smoke alarm? Well, I have that enabled on my Home Pods. And I was getting a notification, actually several in less than a minute, with some error, "Apple homekit notification warning Check in is no longer available "
I was at home, a few rooms away from the Home Pods. But this annoyed me, and I swiped it away. Then it happened again in a few seconds after that. Well, I got up from where I was reading and when I approached the kitchen (where the Home Pods happen to be), I hear a faint beeping and… I left the fridge door open a wee bit! That has an alarm that the door is left open. But the Home Pod didn’t say it was an alarm. Bug? Or maybe it needs a reporting?
Which, my lesson is “becareful of objects on the inside fridge door that could tilt forward and prevent the door from fully closing after walking away”. (Our fridge had the closing-dampeners and I think they are getting long in the tooth…not as quick to close).
So, I wonder if it hears an alarm clock and what Home Pods would do? Would be nice to have feature to sample/test the Home Pod feature and set notification of that “sound”?
