Disable services

You can disable services of your Synology accessory. Add a disabled property with an array to your config.json. You can add the following parameters:

  • temp to disable the temperature
  • stats to disable the custom characeristics cpu load and disk usage quote. Note This accessory will only appear as switch at the Apple Home App. Use the EVE App instead to get all services.

Two factor authentification (2FA)

This plugin does not support 2FA. If you have enabled 2FA, you can't use this plugin.


  • wake up (wake-on-lan has to be active) your diskstation
  • shutdown your diskstation
  • get the current system or average disk temperature
  • get the current cpu load
  • get the disk usage quote (it is the average usage if you have more than one volume)


Please double check your config.json before opening an issue. When you open an issue provide a detailed description of your problem and add your config.json (without password).
