Only able to connect in "Away from Home" mode

I’ve very recently setup:

  • DIYHue running on a Raspberry Pi 3+ within Docker
  • ESP8266 connected to a WS2182b light strip
  • Hue Essentials app on Android

I am able to connect Hue Essentials to DIYHue as part of the initial setup, but once the device is setup I’m unable to then reconnect to the hub. It keeps saying connected in “Away from home” mode which doesn’t allow me to do things like the entertainment set-up.

I have tried reinstalling DIYHue, Hue Essentials and flashing the ESP but nothing seems to be working.

Any support would be appreciated.
