    Token

    For the plugin to work the device token is required. The plugin offers you two ways to retrieve the token for your devices:

    • You can use the plugin's settings in homebridge-config-ui-x (Homebridge Ui), where you will find a "Discover All Devices via MiCloud" button, which can automatically get the tokens for all your devices!
    • Another way it to use the command line tools, simply type miot cloud-devices -u <username> -p <password> in the command line to get the tokens for all your devices!

    Other ways:

    Platform configuration fields

    • platform [required] Must always be "miot".
    • devices [required] A list of your devices.

    Some device types also have some specific configuration fields. Please have a look at the device type page to check whether there are any available under the docs.

    Property and Action names (or ids)

    There are 4 ways to get the property an action names (or ids) used in actionButtons, propertyControl and propertyMonitor:

    • Use the Miot Spec Fetcher
    • Use the plugin's settings in homebridge-config-ui-x (Homebridge Ui), where you will find a "Fetch Device Metadata" button
    • Check the homebridge log. Available device property and action names will be printed there during initialization
    • You can also use the official miot spec in order to determine the names or ids Miot Spec - Released

    CLI

    The plugin also offers a command line interface to control your devices directly from the command line.
    Just type miot in the console to get a list of available options. Currently available are:

    • miot send -> Send a RAW command over your local network to the device
    • miot test -> Test connection to a device
    • miot tokens -> Store and show tokens for specific devices
    • miot cloud -> Connect to the MiCloud, execute commands, list devices and get specific device info
    • miot fetch-metadata -> Fetch device metadata for the specified model

    Troubleshooting

    Debug

    If you have any issues with the plugin or device services then you can run homebridge in debug mode, which will provide some additional information. This might be useful for debugging issues.

    Homebridge debug mode:

    homebridge -D

    Deep debug log, add the following to your config.json:

    "deepDebugLog": true

    This will enable additional extra log which might be helpful to debug all kind of issues.

    Connection test

    You can test the connection to a device with the following cli command:

    miot test <ip> -t <token>

    If the connection test will succeed then your ip and token are correct!

    Special thanks

    HAP-NodeJS & homebridge - for making this possible.
