Since Apple HomeKit limits the number of devices to 150 per Bridge/Box, you need a second device if you'd like more devices imported. Keep in mind that the actual number of smart devices and scenes that can be imported is 149, since the 150th device is the Bridge/Box itself.

Please follow these steps to add a second 1Home device to your smart home installation and bring your device count in the Apple Home app to 300:

STEP 1

Create a second gateway in the Smart Home tab. Click "+" > "Add smart home locally". Then select your new Bridge/Box as the connection to pair it.

We suggest naming the gateways so that you will be able to distinguish them (e.g. Gateway 1 and Gateway 2).


STEP 2

This step is different for KNX or Loxone users due to a different way the devices get imported into the 1Home Dashboard.

For KNX users:

Move each extra device to the second gateway in the Devices tab by selecting the device and assigning it to a gateway, like this:

Note: that each time you move the device to the second gateway it gets imported into the Home app into the Default Room as a new device.


For Loxone users:

When you create a new gateway, your devices will be re-read and thus duplicated. Please enable up to 149 devices on the first gateway and the other ones on the second one.

You can assign them to a gateway like shown below:



Note: that each time you move a device to the second gateway it gets imported into the Home app into the Default Room as a new device.


This is how you can filter the devices between both devices:
