Best way to remove and reinstall HomeKit Bridge

I've been trying to get the Siri integration back into Indigo since a new release killed it a while back.

So I installed HKBridge, and after a couple of false starts, I can get almost any device to turn on...

And absolutely none of them to turn off.

What's the best way to completely remove HKBridge (and possible remnants of HKBuddy) and reinstall it? (And, correct me if I'm wrong, but shouldn't I be able to say, "Hey Siri, turn off Dining Room light" and have it shut off?)

Thanks very much for all the effort you've put in on this.

ditto to this question....
....I have homekit bridge appearing to work perfectly (from indigo's perspective) but HomeKit refuses to see the servers. Used to work perfectly. I think the next step is to start again.

There are issues with the HomeKit database that can cause devices to get stuck, the easiest way is to simply delete them from the HomeKit app so they are totally gone and then go into the HKB server(s) and change the user ID by one character, that should force HomeKit to see it as a totally new server and re-add it.
