homebridge-hyperion

Homebridge accessory plugin for Hyperion

This plugin allows you to remotely control the state of your Hyperion controlled lights. It allows you to set the on/off state and change the brightness/color.

It optionally allows you to turn on the 'Ambilight' feature on/off. To do so, a switch device will be created. To enable this, set the 'ambilight_name' parameter in the configuration file.
