I’ve installed a fresh RPi image Phoscon_Gateway_Homebridge_2021-07-05
There is no pin code listed for homebridge. Ive tried resetting homebridge (reset button), rebooting, etc. Ideas?
I think I have a pattern - please confirm so we can escalate this to a bug if correct.
- use a Phoscon-supplied SD card image which DOES NOT have homebridge support, and take backup of your gateway configuration.
- overwrite your SD card with a Phoscon-supplied SD card image which DOES have homebridge support.
- Boot the pi, note that you will see a HomeBridge PIN code.
- Restore the backup of your configuration
** you now see that a HomeBridge PIN code is not available **
Actually… I’ve just done a fresh install of Phoscon GW + Homebridge, and immediately it came up without a pin available.
Aha! Another variation!
I did another clean install of Phoscon_Gateway_Homebridge_2021-07-05.xz and I got a pin code.
However, after rebooting I just get “Homebridge is currently being installed” shown on the Advanced Settings screen.
Waiting for several minutes, and that message doesnt go away. Note: it was not set to auto-update Homebridge…
Why so many different behaviors?
Moving from Phoscon App - General Support to Phoscon App - Bug Reports
When Homebridge could be installed with the Phoscon Homebridge Image once it should also work next time. But installation will take a few minutes after the RPI boots and internet connection is mandatory and also that the RPI has correct date and time.
So does it install Homebridge now?
I would not exclude that it really is a bug related to the backup. If it still shows no pin could you check your homebridge configuration file (~/.homebridge/config.json) if there is a key.
