HomeKit support in HassIO

I’m looking to use the HomeKit component here:

It says:

It might be necessary to install an additional package: $ sudo apt-get install libavahi-compat-libdnssd-dev"

Do I need todo this under HassIO or is the packages already installed?


I had the same question. But I just installed the component on my HassIO installation and it just worked. I have a ton of unusable icons on my Home screen on my iPhone so I’m working on that now.

Thanks, so you just added the homekit: line to your configuration.yaml file and it’s working?

Also if you want to remove things from your Home add just play around with the filters, you can add things below the
line to remove them from Home, in theory :slight_smile:

EDIT: It works great after turning it on in the config file, just remember that homebridge_name also has no effect, seems to be a red herring!
