homebridge-ipmi

IPMI plugin for Homebridge

Uses node-ipmi, an ipmitool wrapper, to monitor server temperature and fan sensors via IPMI.

Installation

  1. Install Homebridge using npm install -g homebridge
  2. Install this plugin npm install -g homebridge-ipmi
  3. Update your configuration file - see below for an example

Configuration

  • accessory: "IPMI"

  • hostname: server hostname, or null for local
  • username: server username, or null for local
  • password: server password, or null for local
  • identify: name of switch to toggle blinking chassis identification light, or null to disable
  • temperatureSensors, fans: an object mapping IPMI sensor names, to Homebridge display names

Run ipmitool sensor to show the available sensors.

Example configuration:

                "name": "IPMI",
                "hostname": null,
                "username": null,
                "password": null,
                "temperatureSensors": {
                        "System Temp": "System",
                        "Peripheral Temp": "Peripheral"
                },
                "fans": {
                        "FAN 1": "Fan 1",
