Homebridge

Jacek edited this page Dec 9, 2018 · 6 revisions

Homebridge is a NodeJS server which emulates the iOS HomeKit API to enable support for non-native devices (like Sonoff and Magichome devices).

Sonoff-Tasmota compatible plugins have been developed by macwyznawca and arachnetech as well as others to add support for these devices in Apple's Home app and through iCloud for automation (iPad, HomePod/Apple TV 4 or newer required). Note these plugins are not necessarily specific to Sonoff devices.

The homebridge-mqttthing package has support for many types of devices and is quite flexible with different options especially for RGB/RGBW LED strips.

As of 1.0.11 homebridge-mqttthing supports the following Homekit device types:

  • Light bulb
  • Switch
  • Outlet
  • Motion Sensor
  • Occupancy Sensor
  • Light Sensor
  • Contact Sensor
  • Doorbell
  • Security System
  • Smoke Sensor
  • Temperature Sensor
  • Humidity Sensor
  • Stateless Programmable Switch
  • Garage Door
  • Garage Door Opener

Check out macwyznawca's packages for supported functions, each in a separate package.

To use Homebridge with Sonoff-Tasmota you need to have an existing MQTT broker set up (see wiki overview) and each of your Sonoff devices should have a unique topic set.
