Need help installing HomeKit bridge

I’m trying to set up homekit on my ubuntu, but I just can seem to find the right install guide. Are there any of you that have a guide on how to install the homekit bridge? Thanks!

PaperUI … Add-Ons … Misc tab: klick on Homkit Integration … Install

I was using OpenHAB1… so I did not have PaperUI… I have now but now I cannot paire mit iOS10 (iphone) with the OpenHab… Also I cannot get the IHC plug in to work…

Now you need to decide which version you want to use.
I would recommend the openHAB2 version … openHAB1 is at the end of - developing - life.

I will use OH2… But It would be nice if the Homekit part worked… :slight_smile:

Go through all these steps:

Edit: and take a look at

Will I need to add the IP for OH2 to get it working??
[INFO ] [pl.http.impl.NettyHomekitHttpService] - Bound homekit listener to /0:0:0:0:0:0:0:0:9124

Ok - got Homekit woring… kind off… I can only see my Hue lamp but not my Sonos. My IHC I cannot seem to find anything on how to add legacy items in to OH2…

BTW: To fix Homekit paring thing I added the IP of my OH2 box to the Homekit add-on under : Network settings…

Because it is a 1.9 binding they are configured the same way as in openHAB1. You just need to copy your config from openhab.cfg to ihc.cfg and remove the prefix as described in the linked migration tutorial.

I think that I have the config part setup ok. I can see this in the log:
09:28:18.859 [INFO ] [marthome.event.ItemStateChangedEvent] - Light_Stue_kontakt1 changed from NULL to ON
09:28:18.870 [INFO ] [ome.event.GroupItemStateChangedEvent] - Lights changed from NULL to ON through Light_Stue_kontakt1
09:28:18.872 [INFO ] [ome.event.GroupItemStateChangedEvent] - All changed from NULL to ON through gAdult
09:28:18.873 [INFO ] [ome.event.GroupItemStateChangedEvent] - gAdult changed from NULL to ON through Light_Stue_kontakt1
09:28:18.875 [INFO ] [marthome.event.ItemStateChangedEvent] - Light_Stue_kontakt3 changed from NULL to OFF
09:28:18.876 [INFO ] [marthome.event.ItemStateChangedEvent] - Light_Stue_kontakt2 changed from NULL to OFF
09:28:18.877 [INFO ] [marthome.event.ItemStateChangedEvent] - Light_Stue_kontakt4 changed from NULL to OFF
… I have also copyed the default.itms and default.siteemap and homekit.sitemap to the /openhab2/services and /itmes folder. But I do not see them as “things”…

You won’t see any “Things” for 1.9 bindings, only for 2.0 bindings

ok - how do I add them? and how do I conf HomeKit for eg. sonos items (and IHC items)

You can’t add things for 1.9 bindings. You use them the same way as in openHAB1. Just with config and items.
I cannot tell you anything more about Sonos and IHC, I don’t use them (and neither am using Homematic).

Will I not be able to use Homekit with 1.9 bindings??

I don’t understand your question, sorry.

For 2.0 bindings (homekit) you define things and are then able to link items to channels.
For 1.9 bindings (Sonos, IHC) you have no things and channels, you link the items directly to the hardware (the same way you did it in openHAB1).

So in both cases you get a bunch of items and can use them in rules or directly.

Edit: and again, please read

You will only see “things” for openHAB2 bindings…
