I am at my wit's end...I had the Homebridge connected and Siri working....but no matter what I do I cant get it back after I unplugged it to move it to a different location...tried removing the bridge from account....reinstalling app...logging out of app....resetting hub constantly..ensuring removal from Home....no matter what I do, I can't seem to get the hub onto my WIFI which is needed to get it into Homekit of course.....I've made sure it's only 2.4ghz...

can someone help with this??

if this device is this flaky, there's no way ANYONE can rely on this for their garage doors!


(have the 888lm)

(btw i had posted this as a reply to another post but thought it important to start a new one)

when I setup mine, I had to push the wifi settings from the iphone to the homekit hub by using the "device waiting to be setup" under Wifi. otherwise it woudln't work

maybe i should try creating a NEW chamberlain account? and try again?.....ya, in order for the homebridge to be added to Homekit and the Home app, as you know, you need to get it onto your wifi....will try connecting to it again via the wifi settings....did you not bother with the MyQ app at all?

I didn't have any trouble getting the wifi config onto the new HomeKit bridge. Like I said though, I completed this by finding the HK bridge under Wifi Settings on my iPhone. Don't recall the exact message, but it said something like "device waiting to be configured" and I selected that. the iPhone then downloaded the Wifi config from my iPhone to the HK bridge and the KH bridge joined the network.
