Homekit cannot add to IOS

  • Platform information:
    • Hardware: Pi 3
    • OS: raspbian
    • openHAB version: 2.5.9-1
  • Issue of the topic:

Installed the HomeKit addon configured per document https://www.openhab.org/addons/integrations/homekit/ When opening Home on the Phone it can find the openhab server, but when adding the devices, it tells me it cannot add the devices? device unreachable?

When connecting from a system on the Wifi network I can connect to the port, a tool like “fing” it does not see the port but a browser ends up in the logging

When I list the items that should be available in karaf that seems correct, I can see the items I expected.

Any suggestions on where to look are appriciated

the configuration and log looks ok for me.
at which stage it stops in home app? after you have entered the PIN ?

Yes after the PIN, says its looking for devices and after a while it says cannot add device. Could it have something to do with the Item configuration that is not correct?

Dimmer dimmer_kitchen_main "Dimmer Main [%d %%]" <light> {channel="zwave:device:dba7b941:node17:switch_dimmer", homekit="Lighting"}

try first with less homekit devices. you can add them afterwards.
