homebridge-http-temperature-humidity

A HTTP(S) temperature and humidity accessory for Homebridge.

Installation

  1. Install homebridge using: npm install -g homebridge
  2. Install this plugin using: npm install -g homebridge-http-temperature-humidity
  3. Update your configuration file. See sample-config.json in this repository for a sample.

Configuration

Sample configuration:

"accessories": [
    {
        "accessory": "HttpTemphum",
        "name": "Living Room Weather",
        "url": "http://192.168.1.210/weather",
        "httpMethod": "GET",
        "humidity": true,
        "cacheExpiration": 60
    }
]

Set humidity to false if your HTTP endpoint doesn't include a humidity reading.

The cacheExpiration option specifies, in seconds, how long HTTP responses will be stored in the in-memory cache.


Your HTTP(S) endpoint should produce JSON that looks like this:

{
    "temperature": 25.8,
    "humidity": 38
}

This plugin only acts as an interface between a web endpoint and Homebridge. You will still need some dedicated hardware to expose the web endpoints with the temperature and humidity information. In my case, I used a simple NodeMCU board and a DHT11 (or DHT22). Check my other repo for the NodeMCU code.
