Ok.
But what port are you using?
I mean the default port is 8176 and I have this already in my config.json.
Do I have to use another port?

This is a guess, but I think you need quotes around the value of HOMEBRIDGE _OPTS, since it has a space, e.g.:
Code: Select all
HOMEBRIDGE_OPTS="-U /opt/homebridge"


Actually it worked , it didn't showed up errors.
And the homebridge was and is visible in the HomeKit Apps. I was able to add it with the PIN code.
But, no device appears.

Maybe I will try my Synology NAS instead, there is a plugin too.

That could be an option, but in all articles I've found they are not using quotes.
Here is another one:

Did you try adding the quotes? Did it work?

As for trying it on the command line, what I'm asking is, can you run
Code: Select all
homebridge -D -U /opt/homebridge
and put the output here? The output you posted before is the output you get if homebridge doesn't find the config.json file. There are no platforms configured in that case, so homebridge runs, but there are no platforms, and therefore no devices, configured, so you don't see anything when you are in a Homekit app. I would like to debug only your homebridge install and config instead of your systemd config to reduce the number of variables involved.

I don't know why you had to change the default port for Indigo to get your setup to work, but you shouldn't need to do that.

Hi webdeck,

got it!
Damn, it was my fault: didn't realized that there is a difference in the username (not Indigo but indigo).

Now it find's the devices, but see the output, there still are some errors, some unknow device as well by the end of the capture, after the block with the PIN code.
But can't see yes the devices in my HomeKit apps - maybe due to last errors in the debug file?

Code: Select all
pi@homebridge:/opt/homebridge $ homebridge -D -U /opt/homebridge

Ok, I can see my devices.
But maybe one can have a look about the last error(s) in the debug log.

Re: Homebridge on RaspberryPi

The error at the end is because homebridge can't write to the file /opt/homebridge/persist/AccessoryInfo.CC223DE3CE30.json. You need to make sure whatever user account you're running homebridge under has read and write permission to /opt/homebridge and all of the files and directories under there.

The other two parsing errors appear to be bugs in Indigo's RESTful API. Those two devices have a forward slash / in their names. If you remove the slash from the device names, those parsing errors should go away.

Hmmm, strange. It runs under the homebdrige account and the account is the owner.

About the other thing: I've removed the / from the device names. Thx!

Re: Homebridge on RaspberryPi

I am trying to get Homebride to run on a Raspberry PI I had lying around. But I am struggling with one of the steps in the tutorial.

Running Homebridge on Bootup (systemd)

On newer Raspberry Pi and Debian systems (Jessie +), managing of services with init.d is (transparently) replaced with systemd. If you wish to use systemd for running Homebridge on boot, you can find instructions in a Gist under johannrichard/homebridge. As you can see, the service definition is much shorter than a comparable init.d script.

Download the two files and place homebridge under /etc/default and homebridge.service under /etc/systemd/system on your Raspberry Pi.
.

https://github.com/nfarina/homebridge/wiki/Running-HomeBridge-on-a-Raspberry-Pi

How can I access the root and etc folder? I was able to connect with transmit, but I was unable to writhe to the spesified folder (/etc/default).
I am a beginner on this SSH and raspberry so hope someone can help :)

Re: Homebridge on RaspberryPi

You must use a sudo command, otherwise you are not able to modify files there.

Re: Homebridge on RaspberryPi

Yes. I understand. But what is the command for copy a file to that location? Or do you use a different client to do file sharing?

Re: Homebridge on RaspberryPi

I might have been a bit unclear in my description. So to be a bit more precise.

How can I add a file to the following directory on my PI:
Code: Select all
 /etc/default and under /etc/systemd/system
?

Re: Homebridge on RaspberryPi

For an empty file use:

Code: Select all
touch /path/to/file


Otherwise you can use
Code: Select all
nano /path/to/file
