Hi

 

I don’t think Fibaro will make the HC2 Homekit compatible. They have a Homekit product line.

 

You can use your HC2 with Homekit by using a Raspbarry Pi with Homebridge is installed.

HomeKit doesnt use Z-Wave protocol, but own protocol based on Bluetooth, so it is not compatible...

Hi,

Attempted local backup, I ended up with a screen "starting services" for over an hour. Will try to restart later.

Had same problem with Cloud backup 3 days ago. Rebooted/restarted HC2 and now most, if not all of my scenes containing variables do not work.

Have know idea what to do. I can still turn individual items off/on through the "Device" web page.

Can you manually "start services" or does rebooting start the services.

Any help appreciated.

  • Okey thanks for information. Do you know Home Center Lite support Apple Homekit? Can I control devices connected by Z-Wave? I mean HomeKit send request to Home Center Lite Z-Wave but Home Center handle this request and for example turn off wall plug?

    No. Homecenter2 and the lite version cannot control Apple Homekit. At least not directly. I use a Synology Nas and a container program to run Homebridge. That way you can trick Homecenter2 to control Apple Homekit. It cannot be done so smart with Fibaro Homecenter Lite as it cannot be programmed through LUA.
