Wondering who around here has set up a raspberry pi to control the Homebridge app, allowing them to use Siri to control none homekit compatible devices via homekit. For instance Belkin Wemo Switches aren’t homekit compatible, but using Homebridge you can set it up to control them via Siri.
I’ve got a pi and attemtping to set it up, but having various problems so far which seems related to the installing of “nodejs” (I have no idea what this is but you need it to run Homebridge). I think I installed it, but then when I install Homebridge there are various errors during the install and Homebridge doesn’t run.
Maybe it’s to do with the distro of Raspbian that I’m using or something.
Anyway if anyone else has done it I’d be interested to hear how you went and if you have any advice. I’m kind of surprised somebody hasn’t made a distro specifically for this purpose, but I guess it’s a fairly niche market
