HomeKit, Z-Wave, Telldus Live

If You want to use one  Raspberry Pi to:

  • Emulating the HomeKit protocol, so Your home automation devices appear in the Apple Home App
  • Being the Z-Wave controller with the Razberry Daughter Card
  • HomeKit enable Your Z-Wave devices
  • HomeKit enable Your devices registered at Telldus Live 
It's no problem, just follow the links below

Z-Wave controller installation
HomeKit bridge for Z-Wave
HomeKit bridge for Telldus Live (Where You skip the Homebridge part)



And then an example of the config.json which cover both plugins

{                                                          
    "bridge": {                                            
        "name": "Homebridge",                              
        "username": "CC:22:3D:E3:CE:30",                   
        "port": 51826,                                     
        "pin": "031-45-154"                                
    },                                                     
                                                           
    "description": "Z-Wave and Telldus Live plugin",       
    "platforms": [                                         
{                                                         
        "platform": "ZWayServer",                          
        "url": "http://localhost:8083/",                   
        "login": "admin",                                  
        "password": "admin"                                
    },                                                     
    {                                                      
        "platform" : "Telldus",                            
        "name" : "Telldus Liv!e",                          
        "public_key" : "FEXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXRUNU",
        "private_key" : "ZUXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXU6EF",
        "token" : "88xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxb7d",      
        "token_secret" : "a5xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx5f"         
    }                                                      
    ]                                                      
}                                                          

Besides Z-Wave and Telldus Live Devices I also use some Elgato Eve products unboxed in this post

If You have other products there are more than 300 plugins available

If Samba is installed, RPi is acting as a Windows file server, it looks like this from a Mac


Instructions updating the installation is found here
