Couldn't add openHAB:Home couldn't connect to this accessory

Hello openhab community,

I am running openhabian on a Raspberry Pi 3,

I’m currently trying to integrate Homekit into the openHAB2 environment, but I am having issues with that. It does find openHAB, but when connecting it responds with “Couldn’t add openHAB:Home couldn’t connect to this accessory”.

For testing purposes I added some test items to my .items file

Switch KitchenLights "Kitchen Lights" <light> (gKitchen) [ "Lighting" ]
Dimmer BedroomLights "Bedroom Lights" <light> (gBedroom) [ "Lighting" ]
Number BedroomTemperature "Bedroom Temperature" (gBedroom) [ "CurrentTemperature" ]
Group gDownstairsThermostat "Downstairs Thermostat" (gFF) [ "Thermostat" ]
Number DownstairsThermostatCurrentTemp "Downstairs Thermostat Current Temperature" (gDownstairsThermostat) [ "CurrentTemperature" ]
Number DownstairsThermostatTargetTemperature "Downstairs Thermostat Target Temperature" (gDownstairsThermostat) [ "TargetTemperature" ]
String DownstairsThermostatHeatingCoolingMode "Downstairs Thermostat Heating/Cooling Mode" (gDownstairsThermostat) [ "homekit:HeatingCoolingMode" ]

Switch Test"Test" ["Lighting"] { channel="hue:0210:0017882bb0ae:5:color" }

Do you guys have any idea what the issue could be?

This is the only log entry I could find regarding homekit:

2017-12-20 12:02:58.173 [thome.event.ExtensionEvent] - Extension 'misc-homekit' has been installed.

This is my homekit configuration:
The network interface ip is the ip of the raspberry pi where openhab is running on

Where could be the problem?

Kind regards,

Is there no one with a similar issue ?

I read that it should help to do this:

ssh openhab@localhost -p 8101

after that you can type the following commands

smarthome:homekit clearPairings
smarthome:homekit allowUnauthenticated true

So I tried it but when I enter ssh openhab@localhost -p 8101 then nothing happens:
I just get this response: -bash: openhab@localhost: command not found

(I logged in with the standard login details for openhabian)

I have the same problem

I got mine working from this post

you need to use “ssh openhab@localhost -p 8101” from the Raspberry Pi terminal or from a terminal session connected to it.
