}

MAC ADDRESSX is the device WiFi MAC Address that you want to monitor. Once this MAC Address is connected to your network, Homebridge will then trigger the presence sensor to make the room occupied. You can add more than 1 MAC address, and they should be written in lower case (i.e.: aa:bb:cc:dd:ee:ff).

presenceFile is the path to list of MAC addresses. Currently, the default path is /var/lib/misc/presence.wifi, the same as in presence.sh scripts.

Presence scripts

Two presence scripts are provided:

  • presence.sh: To run on the router/access point to gather device MAC addresses from WiFi interfaces.
  • presence_server.sh: To run on the server where Homebridge is running, for when you do not have access or cannot run scripts on the router/access point.
