homebridge-http v0.0.9

http(s) plugin for Homebridge:


Supports https devices on the HomeBridge Platform and provides a readable callback for getting the "On" and brightness level characteristics to Homekit.


  1. Install homebridge using: npm install -g homebridge
  2. Install homebridge-http using: npm install -g homebridge-http
  3. Update your configuration file. See sample-config.json in this repository for a sample.


This module has recently been updated to support an additional method to read the power state of the device and the brightness level. Specify the status_url in your config.json that returns the status of the device as an integer (0 = off, 1 = on).

Specify the brightnesslvl_url to return the current brightness level as an integer.

Switch Handling and brightness Handling support 3 methods, yes for polling on app load, realtime for constant polling or no polling
