    }
]

name: The Name of your Sky Q set-top box in the Home app.

ipaddress: Local IP address of the Sky Q set-top box.

Note: If you rename one of the boxes via the UI or in the configuration it will need to be removed and added back into the Home app.

Adding Sky Q set-top box to the Home app

Sky Q set-top boxes are exposed to HomeKit as separate accessories and each needs to be manually paired.

  1. Open the Home app on your device.
  2. Tap the Home tab, then tap .
  3. Tap Add Accessory, and select I Don't Have a Code or Cannot Scan.
  4. Enter the Homebridge PIN, this can be found under the QR code in Homebridge UI or your Homebridge logs, alternatively you can select Use Camera and scan the QR code again.

Getting the Sky Q set-top box IP address

On your Sky Q set-top box, go to:

Settings > Setup > Network > Advanced Settings > IP address

Note: If you dont reserve an IP address on your router via the DHCP settings then it may get a differnt IP if you restart your router and this will cause the plugin to fail.
