homebridge-udp-json

UDP server for receiving JSON messages from remote sensors on your network, plugin for Homebridge

Installation

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

Configuration

  • accessory: "UDPJSON"
  • name: descriptive name
  • name_temperature (optional): descriptive name for the temperature sensor
  • name_humidity (optional): descriptive name for the humidity sensor
  • listen_port (8268): UDP port to listen for packets on

This currently plugin creates two services: TemperatureSensor and HumiditySensor, but other sensor types could easily be added in the future.

UDP packets are expected to be sent from a remote sensor in JSON, for example:

{"temperature_c": 24.35, "pressure_hPa": 1010.73, "altitude_m": 21.01, "humidity_percent": 38.20}

This is a custom structure, but is simple enough to send from cheap Wi-Fi enabled microcontrollers such as the ESP8266. Example sender program for Arduino: https://github.com/rxseger/dooper
