I have to say that i had this error, too.
Besides my many problems with HomeKit Bridge it happened two times: as i tried to pair the iPhone with “Pimatic HomeKit Bridge” with Eve the app threw and error (not sure what exactly it said but something like yours) jumped back one screen and as i tried to pair again Eve always jumped back instantly as i pressed on the name of the bridge to pair it.
Problem is I really don’t know how i fixed it. I did nothing else than you already have.
(Resetting all HomeKit iPhone Data, deleting the hap-database folder and deleting the plugin folder)
Maybe you should try deleting all data of pimatic-hap (folder and database), reset your HomeKit data, then start up pimatic WITHOUT plugin:hap in your config and then finally add the plugin again via GUI or config.
I really have no idea if this helps, but i did nothing else.
Maybe try 1-2 times the same again
@michbeck100 I can report good news, too: Since my last post 5 days ago HomeKit communication did work in every case. Even switching from far away with the AppleTV did work! Thanks for your support again.
Wouldnt it be possible to include some kind of deep-logging? I know its hard for you to help us if we dont provide detailed infos but maybe you could include some kind of script which extracts all relevant infos of our system and then writes them to a txt file so you have all the information you need to investigate deeper. I am not sure which information that would be.
Besides the errors: Thanks again for your plugin! I really like it.
