    I have a HomeKit home set up. I have shared the home with my wife. All was well until a few days ago. She could use Siri to control all of the devices and scenes in the home. Now she can't see my HomeKit database so Siri doesn't work for her. The native Lutron app works fine. Siri works fine for me as I am the owner of the home definition.

    I tried removing the share and inviting her back but the invite never seems to complete after she accepts.

    Any thoughts on how to get the Home Share back? I would really like a wife happy with this technology.

    It appears the problem resolved itself.
    The next day, home sharing was back and all appears to be well.
    Around the same time I was having trouble getting the user defined names for new devices to appear correctly in the HomeKit database. One app would see them as defined. Another would see a generic device name. After a while the defined name would appear.

    My best guess would be that the HomeKit database server was having some kind of issue.
