Razberry->HomeKit: HowTo get Device Support?

Post by vga »

the z-way server on my raspberry PI with Razberry works very good.

Some connected devices are:
Danfoss Living Connect - DAN_LC-13
Fibaro WallPlug - FIB_FGWPE-101
Fibaro Switch - FIB_FGD-211
Fibaro Roller Shutter - FIB_FGRM-222
Fibaro Multi Sensor - FIB_FGMS-001
Fibaro float Sensor - FIB_FGFS-101
Fakro Windows Motor - FAK_ZWS230

Nearly all of them are working in z-way server.

But if I add HomeKitGate module to z-way server and want to pair the razberry with an iPhone, everytime paring fails.
I´ve started to exclude accessory by accessory.
In previous versions of z-way-server with HomeKitGate I only had to remove the Fakro Motor, and paring works.
From time to time I had to remove even more accessories for successful paring with the iPhone HomeKit, till I only had 2 accessories in my z-way server: Fibaro Roller Shutter and Fibaro WallPlug.

Now, with z-way server 2.1.2-rc5, even this small setup, with those two Fibaro actors, doesn't pair with the HomeKit any more.

So my question: What's going on with accessories,HomeKitGate and HomeKit?
Seems like there are some problems with characteristics from the accessories, so that HomeKit couldn´t pair with razberry.

Is there a way to find out which characteristics causes problems and is it possible to modify those characteristics to make them working?

Razberry z-way server works very well, but HomeKitGate makes it almost useless for me.

Hope someone have some information about that.

thanks and best regards,

2.1.2 rc5 is an internal build. I'm sure they appreciate the information but I would not expect them to support/fix this issue via the forms until an official release comes out.

See if anything shows up in the logs so they have some idea of what is happening internally.

My z-wave system is very stable. Very happy. I want to implement HomeKit. Should I wait for an update or try it and send log data if I run into problems?

sure, only for your information (also the developers):
Downgrading to rc2 will pair successfully iPhone App and HomeKitGate.
So im looking forward for the fix in some next releases. ;)
