I am running OH 2.4 stable release. I was really glad to see that the HomeKit add-on started to get updated again.
I have been trying to move away from the bundled HomeKit add-on and use the one that you updated (latest -4 release) to have Thermostat working both directions and be able to use it for window blinds later on.
I did struggle during a few hours to move from the built-in binding to your build but eventually managed to get my single Thermostat paired in Home app.
Unfortunately, it does not work properly, for example, I don’t have the current temperature set point value displayed in Home app when adjusting (I had before), or the Thermostat colour does not seem to get updated following mode changes. Yet, I no longer have the “No response” issues.
With your build, I have error messages that I did not have before, regarding improper Characteristics tags on Items, which appear fine to me.

Here are the relevant items:

I also get some :

@Tim_Harper, do you think any of these errors could be the cause of the wrong behaviour in Home app ?
