Homebridge plugin for Bloomsky weather stations

Bloomsky Plugin for Homebridge


This plugin for Homebridge will add your personal Bloomsky weather station to HomeKit. You can shop Bloomsky at Amazon for example.

This plugin will expose the following information for each device associated with your Bloomsky account:

  • Humidity
  • Luminance
  • Temperature
  • Rain Sensor
  • Camera
  • Night/Day Status

Since I personally own a SKY1 model from back when it was a Kickstarter, I can only make an educated guess about supporting other models. If you have a newer version, you can help me out with the support.


  1. Install ffmpeg on your computer with libx264 or (h264_omx for Raspberry Pi)
  2. Make sure your homebridge setup is current.
  3. Follow the official homebridge installation instructions if you haven't done so yet
  4. Install this plugin using: npm install -g homebridge-bloomsky
  5. Edit config.json and add the platform.
  6. Run/Restart Homebridge
  7. Optionally npm install -g sharp on modern platforms for improved performance when generating snapshot images

Configuration Example

Add this configuration information to your homebridge config.json in the platform section.
