What if I told you that you can control your house with Siri AND you computer ? You won't believe me "Apple won't allow people to use HomeKit without an iPhone !". And you would be right ! But that was before Pratos ! ### What is Pratos ? It's a NodeJS webserver that connects to HomeBridge in order to control your house. You can add plugins to make it more personal. "Jarvis is with you" (ref. iron man)
- You must have installed HomeBridge from this repo : https://github.com/nfarina/homebridge
sudo visudoand at the end of the file add
%www-data ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL
cd pratosto access your new directory
npm install pratos
You have to edit Homebridge pin, host, and port with your own settings, you can add an email address. In the default file there are plugins. Remove them from the block plugins or install them with
npm install pratos_<plugin_name>_plugin
node server.js from Pratos directory in order to start Pratos.
Go on http://[your_server_ip]:3000/
If everything works, fine you should see a password page.
The default password is "543678". You can change it at anytime in the settings file.
