Homekit Contact sensors are here

Thanks to Philipp Arndt on GitHub, we might soon have contact sensors for HomeKit! The pull request is here. To add a contact to HomeKit, add the tag ContactSensor. You can download the jar file here.

Just a naive question. I do use only apt or install (via PaperUI etc) to update my openhab.
How do i get the updated Homekit add-on ? I don’t use GitHub on my Pi.

Download the jar and put it in the addons folder. Then run bundle:start org.openhab.io.homekit

Does this work for anyone? I’ve added the tag but the items don;'t show up in homekit

You have to wait until openhab 2.5
