    I don't really know where to put this, as it will most likely be a standalone addon that should not be part of hyperion.

    Has anyone ever tried to integrate hyperion to homekit. So you can talk to siri on your iphone and tell her to turn hyperion on or off, or start and stop effects or static lights?

    I did some short research and it seems like there are some homekit servers on github which can be extended with plugins. One such plugin could maybe make calls to hyperion remote.

    Before i go on this adventure on my own, i wanted to ask if anyone had tried this already?

    Always interesting how much software and extension are spread somewhere and people never noticed it :)

    I played with homebridge with Hyperion - it works

    Hi,

    What OS are you using on your RPI?

    I'd like to get that running on OpenElec but not sure it's doable with the read-only file system...

    Cheers,

    It also works great in my case.
    Plex Media Player on my Pi
    And Homebridge on my debian x86 server
    It also works with multiple "hyperions" (I also have a Pi with an LED strip behind a shelf and it looks awesome!)
