Maximum number of devices

Hi,


I have multiple Hue bridges set up in Homekit. Nearly 200 devices in all.


When I get over about 170 devices Homekit stops syncing between my iPad and iPhone.


I can see no documentation around what the maximum number of devices allowed in Homekit is, is anyone able to point me in the right direction?


Many thanks!

There is a hard limit of 1000 accessories/home but your situation is more likely to be HomeKit hitting the CloudKit single record size limit (1MB). Currently there isn't a way to workaround the problem since HomeKit syncs all of its data via a single CKRecord...

is it possible to increase the (I guess free) record size limit? Any other workarounds possible?
if the hard limit is 1000 accessories/home, why in the case of @dgburton homekit is hitting the cloudkit limit? 1MB x 200 devices
I have a similar problem with 200 homekit devices in 1 account. What if I create another account and have 100 devices in 1 account and the other 100 devices on the second account? I can easily just share/invite the first 100 devices/home with the second account.
