I have a problem with homekit module - accessories are "not responding" after a random time. The same happens after each restart of node-red.
The reason I am writing this here is that my problems started after updating everything: node.js, node-red and the appropriate homekit module. Before everything worked for months without issues.
The problem is I don't know which versions I was using prior to the update. Since then I deleted everything couple of times and tried different combinations of versions. (certainly I have tried node.js v8.9 since I think it was the old one but then I can not switch to older node-red or the older version of the homekit-bridged module)
The same problem occurs with every of the available homekit (bridged or not bridged) module.
The machine hosting node-red is running under windows server 2012 r2. Initially I thought this is due to bonjour problems on windows but I can see the created homekit bridge or single accessories (depending on the installed module) in the bonjour browser.
On the client side there where no iOS updates in the meantime (and the IKEA Tradfri lamp is still working just fine).
Therefore I am sure the problem sits in the node.js or node-red.
Right now I have node v10.16.0 with npm v6.9.0, node-red v0.20.6 and node-red-contrib-homekit-bridged v 0.6.2 running. Windows firewall is completely turned off for test purposes.
I am communicating with a bunch of sonoffs and esp8266's dev boards running micropython via mqtt and everything works perfectly from dashboard. Homekit and dashboard are the only extras added to node-red.
If anybody knows how to configure the setup correctly to solve this problem please feel free to help me out
I will be also happy if you could just point into the right direction. I am not sure how to even diagnose the issue, since no errors appear on the console.
PS. Sometimes randomly after a day or a rather long time homekit responds by itself but after switching devices couple times it losses connection again with a "not responding" message.
