homebridge-eveatmo

This is a homebridge plugin which lets you integrate your non-HomeKit Netatmo Weatherstation into HomeKit.

Whilst the original homebridge-netatmo-plugin goes a mostly HomeKit-standard approach (predefined services, characteristics, ...), this plugin tries to mimic the Elgato Eve devices as close as possible.

Configuration

Because this plugin's base was taken from homebridge-netatmo (see above) you can adapt its config. Just use the plattform-code "eveatmo" and remove "ttl" and/or the other "refresh_" properties for the beginning.

"platforms": [
        {
            "platform": "eveatmo",
            "name": "eveatmo platform",
            "extra_co2_sensor": false,
            "co2_alert_threshold": 1000,
            "ttl": 540,
            "auth": {
    	        "client_id": "XXXXX Create at https://dev.netatmo.com/",
                "client_secret": "XXXXX Create at https://dev.netatmo.com/",
                "username": "your netatmo username",
                "password": "your netatmo password"
            }
        }
    ],

  • extra_co2_sensor: (optional) Adds an extra CO2 sensor which is available via Apple's stock Home.app, too. Default value is false
  • co2_alert_threshold (optional): Sets the co2-level [ppm] at which the sensors switch to alert-state
  • ttl: (optional) Seconds between two Netatmo API polls. Lower is not neccessarily better! The weatherstation itself collects one value per 5minutes, so going below 300s makes no sense. Default value is 540 (=9min)
  • auth: Credentials for the Netatmo API
  • module_suffix: (optional) If this is set, the Netatmo's devicename will not be prepended to the modulename. Instead this config-value will be appended - with a space - to the module name

Retrieve client id and secret

  1. Register at http://dev.netatmo.com as a developer
  2. After successful registration create your own app by using the menu entry "CREATE AN APP"
  3. On the following page, enter a name for your app. Any name can be chosen. All other fields of the form (like callback url, etc.) can be left blank.
  4. After successfully submitting the form the overview page of your app should show client id and secret.

Siri Voice Commands

Here are sample English voice commands:

  • How cool is it in the ROOM NAME?
  • How warm is it in the ROOM NAME?
  • How humid is it in the ROOM NAME?
  • What's the temperature in my ROOM NAME?
  • What's the humidity in my ROOM NAME?
  • What's the air quality in my ROOM NAME?
  • What's the CO2 level in my ROOM NAME?
  • What's the carbon dioxide level in my ROOM NAME?

Siri understands variations of each command:

  • What's the temperature ROOM NAME?
  • What's the temperature in ROOM NAME?
  • What's the temperature in my ROOM NAME?
  • What's the temperature in the ROOM NAME?
  • What's the temperature down in my ROOM NAME?
  • What's the temperature down in the ROOM NAME?

Siri voice commands may vary by language. Since this plugin tries to mimic the Elgato Eve devices, you can search the Eve blog for articles listing voice commands in your language.

Thanks

This plugin's basic structure and most of its basic code is a fork (ok, lets say "copy") of homebridge-netatmo. So big thanks to @planetk and all the other contributors of this project.

Also big thanks to @gomfunkel and @simont77 for this gist and its fork, @KhaosT for this gist, @mplewis for this gist and @0ff for this (almost) working Eve Weather imitating homebridge-plugin and once again special thanks to @simont77 for his endurance in digging deeper in Eve's custom characteristics and its protocols.
