    homebridge-dash

    A Homebridge plugin for the Amazon Dash Button.

    This plugin integrates with Homebridge to create a switch that can automate other accessories and platforms.

    Installation

    Prerequisites

    1. Ensure libpcap-dev is installed on your system
    2. Ensure you know the MAC address of the button you wish to listen to

    npm

    Installation is via npm.

    npm install -g homebridge-dash
    

    If you encounter an error you may need to run the following command instead.

    sudo npm install -g --unsafe-perm homebridge
    

    Config + Running

    Check the config-sample.json for an example on how to configure the plugin. You can configure as many buttons as you wish.

    Homebridge must be run with elevated privileges to work correctly i.e. sudo or root.

    Troubleshooting

    If this freezes the wlan on your Raspberry Pi you may need to use a different Wi-Fi dongle. I've had success with this one.

    Install

    npm i homebridge-dash
