    homebridge-philipstv-X

    Homebridge module for Philips TV (with JointSpace enabled)

    Description

    This plugin is basically a modification of homebridge-http. Main difference is:

    • Ability to poll every 5 min a PhilipsTV
    • Ability to sent on Standbye command
    • If no answer is received, the power state is set to false
    • If any answer is received, the power state is set to true

    Update

    Added power-on function for models after 2014 (thanks to uronito - https://github.com/uronito )

    Added support for 2016 philips models

    Added 'has_ambilight' (true/false) switch. Defaults to 'false'

    Installation

    1. Install homebridge using: npm install -g homebridge
    2. Install this plugin using: npm install -g homebridge-philipstv-x
    3. Update your configuration file. See the sample below. If you have a 2016 model you have to generate some access-credentials before (see below)

    Configuration

    Example accessory config for models before 2014 (needs to be added to the homebridge config.json):

    "accessories": [
       {
       	"accessory": "PhilipsTV",
       	"name": "My Philips TV",
       	"ip_address": "10.0.1.23",
       	"poll_status_interval": "60",
       	"model_year" : "2013"
       }
    ]
    

    Example accessory config for models from 2014 and 2015 (needs to be added to the homebridge config.json):

    "accessories": [
       {
       	"accessory": "PhilipsTV",
       	"name": "My Philips TV",
       	"ip_address": "10.0.1.23",
       	"poll_status_interval": "60"
       }
    ]
    

    Example accessory config for models from 2016 (needs to be added to the homebridge config.json):

    "accessories": [
      {
      	"accessory": "PhilipsTV",
      	"name": "My Philips TV",
      	"ip_address": "10.0.1.23",
      	"poll_status_interval": "60",
      	"model_year": 2016,
      	"has_ambilight": true,
      	"username": "deadbeef0815",
      	"password": "deadbeef0815deadbeef0815deadbeef0815deadbeef0815deadbeef0815",
      }
    ]
    

    Added test option for WakeOnWLAN:

    "accessories": [
       {
       	"accessory": "PhilipsTV",
       	"name": "My Philips TV",
       	"ip_address": "10.0.1.23",
       	"poll_status_interval": "60",
       	"model_year" : "2014",
       	"wol_url": "wol://18:8e:d5:a2:8c:66"
       }
    ]
    

    Credentials for 2016 models

    As of 2016 models Philips closed the open, non-https JointSpace API (v5) and switched to the secured API-version 6. Every control- or status-call needs digest authentification which contains of a pre generated username and password. You have to do this once for your TV. We reccomend to use the python script philips_android_tv.

    Here is an example pairing call for philips_android_tv :

    python ./philips.py --host 10.0.1.23 pair
    

    Install

    npm i homebridge-philipstv-x
