homebridge-mihomegateway

Energenie MiHome gateway plugin for Homebridge.

Installation

  1. Install Homebridge using: npm install -g homebridge
  2. Install this plugin using: npm install -g homebridge-mihomegateway
  3. Update your configuration file. See the sample below.

Updating

  • npm update -g homebridge-mihomegateway

Configuration

Currently, the setup is a bit convoluted - sorry about that!

This will all be automated in upcoming releases but for now a bit of manual work is required.

Sample Configuration

"platforms"[{
    "platform": "MiHomeGateway",
    "name": "",
    "username": "",
    "password": "",
    "baseUrl": ""
}]
  • accessory - must be set to MiHomeGateway
  • name - not currently used but set to a friendly label for the MiHome bridge
  • username - call the register user service to create a new api user
  • password - the password you used to register with. Your password is only used for one initial authentication call. Subsequent calls will use the api key obtained during authentication.
  • baseUrl - [optional] an override for the MiHome API URL

TODO

  • Add additional device types (currently only supports light switches)
  • Automate registration
  • Extract MiHome API calls into separate library
