homebridge-simplisafe is a plugin for Homebridge that allows you to control your SimpliSafe security system through Homekit. All of this is pretty much one big hack, so it should be approached with a healthy DIY spirit.
- Install Homebridge:
npm install -g homebridge
- Install homebridge-simplisafe:
npm install -g homebridge-simplisafe
Note: These might require admin permissions to install, which you can get by prepending each command with
config-sample.json for an example configuration file. Basically, the only thing you'll need to change is your SimpliSafe username and password. You'll need a Simplisafe plan that supports remote control from their iOS app, as this taps into the same API.
Once installed, you should now have two SimpliSafe switches in your Home app. One turns the system on in 'Away' mode and the other does the same for 'Home' mode.
homebridge-simplisafe currently works by adding the two aforementioned switches in Homekit. I'd much rather this integrate as a proper Homekit Security System, but it's being a bit finicky at the moment. I won't say this change is coming soon, but I plan to get around to it eventually. It also only supports a single location which isn't likely to change, given that I only have SimpliSafe at one house and the SimpliSafe Node module that I'm using doesn't support multiple locations, either.
