It was very noticeable as I realized that I have much less accessory icons on the Home app. That was when I realized that the Accessory icons for Door / Window Contact, Temperature, Motion, and Light intensity Sensors were Gone in Home iOS 14. At first I thought it was an error and proceeded to check the room pages to see if the update removed them from my favorites. Nope it was not the case. Then I checked if the accessory was functioning. Yes it was.
In the iOS 13 Home app, you would be able to see the Accessory Icons. It shows Sensors within each room and notifies you if it’s been triggered, the current temperature, or light intensity reading. Now, in iOS 14, you can choose to show it in the Home Status bar.
I’m pretty torn on which way I like better, to see the individual sensors, or to only see what’s active. I recon that it makes sense to only show the active sensor, and remove the clutter from the Home Screen. But being able to see every sensor’s status at a glance is somewhat important for a data junkie like me as well. Let me explore more and update you as I progress.
