    Amazon Dash Buttons?

    Since my setup detects the button coming online and attaching to the network, if you press it 4 times in quick succession it’ll only register as one push, because the network won’t have been turned off yet between presses.

    Amazon Dash Buttons?

    Yep. I’ll tinker in busybox for my own purposes, but I’d never make a product out of it. Lol.

    Amazon Dash Buttons?

    That’s exaxtly what mine does. I have the control4 driver already done. I have the code to monitor the buttons done. What’s left is to make it more than a DIY project. Everything I sell is “commercial grade” and I have software that makes discovery of new buttons super-simple and doesn’t require anything that my parents can’t do by following simple instructions and using a web browser. Sure, if you’re reasonably DIY oriented, setting up your own is pretty easy, but I try to take it that last step.

    Homebridge Driver for HomeKit Support?

    Not yet... but still very much on my to-do list. Lots of valid excuses, but not really relevant to the "not getting it done" bit. I bought 10 of the buttons and have them working here, so I just need to "productize" the configuration and install process so it's the same ease-of-use as my other stuff, and then it should be ready to go. Hoping to get to that soon-ish.

    Homebridge Driver for HomeKit Support?

    It’s listed in the driver properties on Composer.

    I haven’t really looked all that closely at this, but it’s possible Apache needs several processes to run. It’s also possible the node stuff under the hood is using Apache dependencies. I wouldn’t worry about it too much.

    Yep. Most of that stuff is discrete audio. If you see a percentage in the volume display on C4, it should work ok.

    Homebridge Driver for HomeKit Support?

    Not quite. HomeKit makes the generic concept of a “speaker” available. Apple used that for volume control or the HomePod, but it fits for anything that provides discreet volume levels (can set to specific % and receive feedback on current level). If your room setup can only do “volume up” and “volume down” and doesn’t report current %, it probably won’t work. But for those of us with discrete room volume levels, it should work out nicely. Basically, there will be a new “device” in the room that represents the room’s volume level, and you can use that to turn it up and down.

    Homebridge Driver for HomeKit Support?

    Well... unfortunately, there’s a limit on how quickly new devices can come out. HomeKit has a limit on what’s natively supported and Apple only updates once per year. The “big change” this year was support for speakers, so I can add support for room volume control eventually. Unfortunately, my day job has been kicking my butt and I haven’t had time to play with that yet, after keeping up with normal support duties.

    You can actually update homebridge from the web UI just as easily. But I generally figure that if it’s not broken, don’t fix it. If there’s something you need to correct, or some new feature you need, go for it. But mostly I tend to just leave it alone.

    HomeKit/Homebridge Driver Version 1.12

    I don’t know that I’d do it on a regular basis. But when I release a driver update or when you make changes to your project, yes. Shouldn’t hurt anything. The import does a merge of what you already have and what’s on the director.

    HomeKit/Homebridge Driver Version 1.12

    I’ve seen that happen a few times, where the auto-update driver doesn’t pick up a new version. That’s a HouseLogix thing. You may have to uninstall and then reinstall the latest copy from my website (or from HouseLogix)

    Realtime Event Webhook Driver

    I'm actually working on a project that would be that "better solution"....if I can ever find enough spare time to finish it.
