Finally it's here and the only one in the entire AppStore - Homebridge App!

With Homebridge you can easily and cheap turn your entire home into a futuristic smart home. Everything is controlled by you and your iPhone while Homerbidge works as a bridge between Apple's HomeKit on your iPhone / iPad and your devices like your TV, light, game console, jalousies, and and and.

All you need is a tiny and cheap PC called "RaspberryPi" - But don't worry this App will support you with supported projects and a bunch of software, which will be installed by this App, so you will be guided and don't need any deep PC-nerd-experinces.

With the great Homebridge-App you'll have fun to:
- setup your brand new RaspberryPi (1, 2, 3 and Zero) with our preconfigured version of the open source installer "NOOBS".
- install and setup all relevant software on your RaspberryPi with just a single tap on the App
- automatically configure your RaspberryPi's WiFi, etc.
- install amazing Plug-Ins for Homebridge from our tiny Plug-In store
- coming soon: Follow awesome Homebridge-Projects, supported with shopping-lists and 1-click-installations and setup

Control. Your. Pi.
• Reboot your Pi
• Restart Homebridge
• Update all required software components (OS, Node, NPM, Homebridge, Plugins, etc.)
• Easily manage your Wifi-networks
• View all Homebridge-PlugIns (NPM) at a glance
• View all Homebridge error- and system-logs.
• Debug-Mode: Homebridge is not working, also after using our famous Auto-Repair function? Run Homebridge in the debugger to quickly determine, where the problem is.
• Networkscanner to easily find and identify your devices
• Create backups of your settings and configurations
• Fallback: Enjoy a build in SSH-Terminal, if you like.

Easy Setup plugins
First of all, you can add every NPM plugin you like using the Homebridge App and a graphical and easy to use generic interface. However we've prepared a nice and shiny specialized interface for the most popular and important plugins including:
• Fritz!
• WeMo
• Wake on LAN
• Domoticz
• HarmonyHub
• HomeAssistant
• HomeMatic
• Hue
• LiFx
• People (Wifi device trigger)
• Relay
• Remote Outlet
• Sonos
• Synology
• Telldus
• Tradfri

Let's get nerdy:
Each member of our developer team loves the RaspberryPi with all varieties.
But sometimes it's very exhausting and frustrating to set up the whole software and keep track everything is running, so we build this amazing App!

What we do for you:
- setup your brand new RaspberryPi or connect to your existing one
- setup Homebridge incl. service, configuration and all kind of plugins available with NPM
- manage your SystemCtl or init.d service
- edit your config.json graphically just from the App without any terminal, etc., also for not supported plugins and platforms
- keep track of your Pi, the homebridge-service, homebridge-pin, homebridge-logs, etc. so everything is just working and can be restarted / repaired if necessary
coming soon: connect your Pi to the HomeKit

Homebridge on a Mac
There are already users, which are using this App with a Homebridge server running on a Mac. However we strongly recommend using the App with a RaspberryPi (1, 2, 3, Zero) and do not support servers, running on other machines including the Mac.

We need your help!

No Joy


Tried to use this with my already running raspberry pi zero Wi-Fi. After app finished homebridge would not stay running. Using the app, it could not repair home bridge.

Erased the Pi.

Installed pi operating system from scratch per app instructions, then attempted to use app to install homebridge. At the point where App wanted to configure Wi-Fi I let it go. It rebooted the pie, and the pie was dead, a couple of broken icons in the menu bar and a frozen mouse at each reboot.

Erased the Pi

I installed again per directions in the app with the intent of not letting it configure Wi-Fi at the end. App finished it’s config made the telephone sound and then crashed. Opening a back up showed that home bridge could again not stay running.

This app seems to crash repeatedly while trying to use it to diagnose or repair homebridge.

Pre-App, 6 attempts at hand install... minimal success but better than this app. Homebridge eventually becomes unstable and won’t stay running ... a central theme to the hobbyware.

Installing home bridge on raspberry pi with nodejs is a miserable experiment in incompatibilities, defective system configuration scripts, and poor software development. The hope was this app could bypass the configuration issues and make it a little easier. So far several hours in, no joy in this app either.

Had such high hopes for this app. :-(

Very Helpful App. Now I can control Sonos and Harmony Hub from Siri!


The negative reviews almost scared me away from buying and trying this. I saw they recently made a big update so I decided to try it. It was a little tricky to figure out and took me some trial and error, but it is now working and I love controlling the Harmony Hub and Sonos through HomeKit and Siri. The developer doesn’t seem to respond to emails however, besides an auto reply in German. However, I am very pleased with the app and the new possibilities it opens up to controlling more devices via Siri.

Waste of time

Zach Bovard

On a raspberry pi with an ARMv61 this was a waste, I was worried about the config file and this thing had me reinstall several times doubting myself. Couldn’t get their version of homebridge to launch once, let alone actually install it anywhere. Found the right instructions and installed on a fresh noobs install and viola! Buyer beware. If you are this far down the rabbit hole you might as well install it yourself.
