Smart Home Part 6: LaunchControl Keep Homebridge Running

icon_256x256
In this screencast tutorial I cover an application called LaunchControl by Soma-Zone Software (http://www.soma-zone.com/LaunchControl/) which will help you keep your homebridge instance running and auto launch at reboot.

I have received a lot of questions about how to keep homebridge alive when a Mac reboots or the service crashes for some reason. When this happens it can leave you without access to your non HomeKit devices and cause a lot of issues. To help solve that LaunchControl is a front end for controlling launchd which is used to auto launch applications or services and in this case I show you how to set it up to keep homebridge running at all times.
