I have looked at multiple threads and even asked some community members in those threads if they found the solution but so far I’m still stuck. I’ve also noticed a lot of the threads on this topic are dated or more geared toward RPi or Hass.io.
Here is my issue, I set up Homekit in Home Assistant, I get the pairing code when I restart HA but my Home App on my phone never finds HA and entering the pairing code manually just spins. I have logged out of iCloud, deleted the Home App, and restarted my phone (multiple times).
Here is what I’m working with:
Home Assistant - 0.103.6
It is in Docker on my Synology DS918+ running DSM 6.2.2-24922 Update 4
I have a Unifi USG, switch, and APs - they are 5.12.35
I have a RaspberPi running Pi-Hole attached to the switch that all network traffic travels though.
iPhone X running - iOS: 13.3
AppleTV running - tvOS: 13.3
I do have the Synology firewall turned on but I have tried it off and opened TCP ports 51827, 5353, 8123
My Synology is on Ethernet with an IP of 10.1.1.#
My iPhone is on WiFi with an IP of 10.1.1.#
My AppleTV is on Ethernet with an IP of 10.1.1.#
I recently rebuilt my Home Assistant config file so currently I’m just using:
I have tried:
homekit: filter: include_entities: - demo.demo
homekit: safe_mode: true
homekit: advertise_ip: "STATIC_IP_OF_YOUR_DOCKER_HOST"
I’ve also deleted the .homekit.state file and restarted, multiple times. I’ve also tried a Mac plugged into the same Unifi switch as the Synology (you can’t add accessories in home on a Mac). I never had home bridge so I shouldn’t have a conflict there.
I feel like I’ve gone down the entire component page at home-assistant.io and tried all of the possible fixes. I am definitely a N00B at this, YouTube is my friend.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
