What functionality does this have that makes it better than the existing Homebridge/HomeKit driver that has been around for a few years?  If you have greater than 200 devices do they need to be done in separate hubs?

Would it also run in a docker on other OSes like unRAID?

Initially and quickly, this driver has the following features:

- Ability to add, rename devices from within C4 and push to Homebridge, no Jason copy/paste

- Supports Shades

- Supports up to 5 Garage Doors with relays functionality

Am still going to set it up to fully answering your questions, but I believe whatever the limitations of Apple will be inherited, so separate Hubs are required.

It supports Docker so unRAID will definitely work.

For the testers like myself, can u please share with me the JSON file that the application generated? I forgot to take a copy for my setup before removing the driver to use with another controller, another house.  I need to check on devices types and do some comparison with HomeBridge Driver.
