EDDRINUSE is an error you get when homebridge is running and you try to start a second instance.
Try “sudo killall homebridge” and then restart with “homebridge” to check everything is working.

Thanks ! It solves this error, bit I am still stuck with homebridge not retrieving smartthings devices

I have the same problem. @gregoiredore - Were you able to resolve it?

Just fixed it, remove JSON COMPLETE API from smart app… reinstall it, adjust your new app_id and access token and everything will be fixed !! :wink:


Yes ! I was just about to write the same thing.
