    Custom Actuators

    • A switch actuator can be exposed as a (video) DoorBell.
    • A switch actuator can be exposed as a Garage Door.


    • Busch-Jaeger Access Point
    • A linux-based server on your home network that runs 24/7 like a Raspberry Pi.
    • Busch-Jaeger API running

    Setup / Installation

    1. Install Homebridge
    2. npm install homebridge-buschjaeger
    3. Install free@home API
      • Set the port for the websocket server to 8001. The HTTP API can be disabled.
    4. Edit config.json and configure platform. See Configuration section.
    5. Start Homebridge
    6. Star the repository ;)


    To configure the plugin add the following json in the platform section in config.json.

        "platform": "BuschJaegerSysAp",
        "sysIP": "<IP>",
        "updateInterval": 60,
        "mappings": {}

    Replace <IP> with the IP where your Busch-Jaeger API is running (NOT the IP of the System Access Point). localhost or is fine if it's running on the same server.

    You can configure the mappings if you want to ignore an actuator or channel if they are not connected/unused to hide them from the HomeKit UI.

        "platform": "BuschJaegerSysAp",
        "sysIP": "<IP>",
        "updateInterval": 60,
        "mappings": {
            "<ACTUATOR-SERIAL>": {
                "blacklist": ["ch0000", "ch0001"],
            "<ACTUATOR-SERIAL>": {
                "blacklist": ["*"],
            "<ACTUATOR-SERIAL>": {
                "whitelist": ["ch0010"] # Only for Door Lock - free@homeTouch 7 at the moment.

    You can find the actuator serial in the web interface of the Busch-Jaeger SysAp Interface.

    Some actuators (like Door Lock - free@homeTouch 7) require the channel to be explicitly whitelisted.

    (Video) DoorBell

    See the DoorBell Tutorial on how to setup the BuschJaeger DoorBell in HomeKit.

    Garage Door

    See the GarageDoor Tutorial on how to expose a Switch actuator as a GarageDoor accessory.


    • The door can not be controlled with HomeKit as the bus is not connected to the SysAp. Already implemented via free@HomeTouch 7 Panel
    • The door camera can not be accessed. You may want to use IP cameras that support the rtsp protocol and use the video door bell.


    • The accessories can only be controlled when you're at home in your local WiFi network. To manage your accessories remotely you need to setup an iPad/Homepod or Apple TV as a Home Hub.

    Tips & Tricks

    • Do not restart Homebridge if you are either updating the SysAp or an actuator as the accessory may be removed from HomeKit if it is not detected during discovery.
    • If the HomeKit UI does not respond to manual changes (switch pressed) or the accessory doesn't update itself log into the System Access Point interface and log out again. The SysAp might disable websocket notifications if the connection is idle for too long.
