    "homebridge-sony-audio-control-heargo-kazari" Plugin

    With this plugin you can create HomeKit services to control a Sony STR-DN1080 Audio Video Receiver.

    The code for this plugin has originally been forked from Http Speaker for Homebridge authored by Andreas Bauer.

    Modified verion by Yukimi Kazari to add support for the Sony SRS-HG1 Portable speaker that i use on my desk. The main differances are using the system power commands over avControl and removing the hard coaded port as some speakers do not use the 10000 port

    In my chnages I have most likely broken then zone support but that is not supported by the HG1.

    Compatibility notice

    This plugin utilizes Sony's Audio Control API. It has only been tested with a Sony Sony SRS-HG1 Spealer, but it may work with other Sony devices that support the API.

    The plugin supports powertoggling, volume control including muting, setting sound modes stereo and Dolby Surround and switching configured external inputs.

    This plugin uses the power off comand so ensure you have network standby enabled and power connected in order for the plugin to communicate with your speaker on power off.


    First of all you should already have installed Homebridge on your device. Follow the instructions over at the HomeBridge Repo.

    To install the homebridge-sony-audio-control-heargo-kazari plugin simply run sudo npm install -g homebridge-sony-audio-control-heargo-kazari.


    Below is an example configuration that has to amended to your existing Homebridge-configuration.

    You have to edit "ip" to correspond with the IP-address of your receiver.

    Set "name" to what you prefer to refer to the device as using Homekit or Siri.

    Set "outputZone" to the zone you want to control (omit if your device does not support zone control).

    "accessory" is used by homebridge to initialize the plugin correctly, so do NOT edit this setting.

    To disable network standby, set enableNetworkStandby to false (not recommended as you can't turn on receiver again through a network connection, but it significantly lowers power consumption while off).

    For every external input you want to enable, you have to add a new input object with a "name" and "uri". Again "name" can be set to what you prefer to refer to the input as using Homekit or Siri, while "uri" have to correspond to the Device Resource URI per Device URI.

    For every soundfield you want to enable, you can add a new soundfield object with a "name" and "value". Again "name" can be set to what you prefer to refer to the soundfield as using Homekit or Siri, while "value" have to correspond with the soundField coding of the Sony equipment. If you omit the soundField array entirely, default soundfields for 2 channel stereo and Dolby Surroind will be created. If you don't want any soundfields to be created, included an empty array (ie. "soundFields": []).
