A HomeKit range extender for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) accessories.

Bridges existing HomeKit BLE accessories to IP via Homebridge and makes them accessible even if they're out of range of your HomeKit Hub.

Beware

This plugin is fairly new. It has already been used in several situations, but there's likely still some rough edges. Contributions are welcome to improve it. Want to help? Take a look at the CONTRIBUTING page.

Starting with version 0.3.0 of the plugin you'll need homebridge@0.4.35 - earlier versions will not provide event notifications and rules based on accessories provided by this plugin will not work.

Documentation

Please read the documentation in its entirety as this plugin is a bit more complex than your usual Homebridge plugin.
